There are some parents who tend to think more about how they will design their girls' bedrooms than their boys' bedrooms. This is done subconsciously， of course， based upon the notion that girls are "higher maintenance" than boys. But 'cool boys' bedrooms are really just as important to boys as 'trendy girls' bedrooms are to the girls.
And it's great fun for you as a parent to carefully design your son's bedroom interior. One cool boys' bedroom design idea is the sports theme. You can have floor-to-ceiling shelves in which various foot balls， baseballs， hockey pucks， mittspersonalized gifts for girlfriend， racquets， and other sports items are placed. These same shelves can also house books， writing implements， a small TV， a radio， and on and on with "boy's life" stuff. The bed can have sporty bedclothes， and you can include bean bag chairs that look like foot balls， etc.children's decorative pillows
Sleek， modern metal furniture goes well with this theme， and a metallic computer desk is an excellent complement to this type of cool boys' bedroom design. The floors can be left natural wood with perhaps a couple of sport-themed throw rugs. Lighting can be from wall sconces and a central overhead light. If your son has a reading desk be sure to include cheap table lamps or a reading lamp. A floor lamp can go behind his bed if he wants to lie up in bed and read. The coloration in the cool boys' sporty bedroom should be darker. Blue， needless to say， is always an excellent option. The walls should be painted with the blue or other darker colour， not wallpapered. This way your son can hang up sports posters and photographs without their clashing .
Navy blue curtains are an excellent choice for boys' bedrooms. It would probably be fair to say that boys tend to like darker colours and are not overly concerned about a lot of light coming in through the windows， and if they ever do want to see the sun they'll just pull their curtains open! Boys tend to be more concerned with the dramatic and the intense in contrast to the girls' like of giggly and bubbly. Another way to go for a cool boys' bedroom is ultra-modern.
This could include all metal furnishings with sharply defined lines： squares， rectangles， circles. The coloration in this room could be various shades of blue mixed with white and grey. It works to carpet the floor in such a room to offset the "coldness"， but a square or rectangular grey rug will also work. The floor might be wooden or laminate. If laminate， white rugs are an excellent colour choice because it keeps the room bright – are you brave enough for white？!
When I first saw these BERNINA Echo quilt clips, I literally was jumping up and down. You might ask why? Well, you may or may not have heard, I have spacial issues. It is one of the reason why I quilt so heavily. If it’s all quilted, then it is evenly quilted right? Right! But not all quilts should be quilted to death and some people (I don’t know why) don’t like the quilted-to-death look.

When we received our photographs from Kristen Clayville, I immediately texted a friend and told her how much I loved them. Her response was “It’s kind of a miracle when the mother of 3 young children says she loves her family photos.” It’s true, photos can be challenging with kids because they easily become camera shy, have a short attention span and just don’t want to cooperate. That’s why I took a different approach to our recent winter family photos. I am excited to share our family photos and my family photo tips today!I made it an activity, or as Adalyn would say “a fun thing.” It encouraged?the girls to relax and have fun and allowed our photographer to capture the personalities of everyone in our family. Instead of feeling exhausted and frustrated when our session concluded, we talked about how much fun we had all the way home.A few minutes before our photos, I set up a little picnic complete with hot chocolate, cinnamon rolls and plenty of marshmallows. It was COLD outside, so we cozied up with pillows and blankets, using one of my vintage sleds for seating. Rather than dressing up, we wore what we do on a daily basis, which made the girls more comfortable. I wish I had done the same for Adalyn’s Christmas program at preschool…she itched her legs and adjusted her tights the entire time she was on stage!A cinnamon roll face is a happy face!To maximize the time and attention span of the girls, we did something different every few minutes. First, the girls were in amazement to find a picnic set up just for them nestled behind the trees. Once that wore off, we had breakfast, followed by hot chocolate.We had SO much fun and I’m thankful to have this photograph to remember this moment.Sweet little Isla bear.Adalyn and Aniston have so much love for one another, they just can’t help but show it. Best of friends and sweetest of sisters.Adalyn is such a beautiful child – an old soul.Even packing up was fun!?For more creative ideas, follow me on?Bloglovin?and?Facebook, pin with me on?Pinterest?and go behind the scenes on?Instagram.
