I think it's safe to say that I am seriously outnumbered in my house. The only other "girls" are the family dog and cat (if that even counts). I'm a boy mom to three of the precious, sweet and disgusting boys. And I embrace my role as their mother. I know their bedroom is going to smell of sweat and gym socks (Arm & Hammer to the rescue). I know I'm going to be constantly yelling to aim INSIDE the toilet bowl, or to put the toilet seat down. I know belches and burps will always be ambient background noise in my home. I know I'm going to have a $1000 a month grocery budget because they eat me out of house and home. And for the most part, I have come to terms with all this.
But, sometimes I just have to step away from all the "boy" in my house. So having a bedroom that allows me to escape...AMAZING to say the least.
Color and I have a very good relationship. I can't get enough bright color in my life. It especially extends into this bedroom.
The desk you see above also operates as a vanity area for me to get ready. When we moved into our new house, we opted for smaller bathrooms and less storage, so that we could have the second living room area. But this has been the perfect little place for me to put on makeup or work/blog. Thus, I haven't missed the large bathroom too terribly much.
If you've been following my Instagram you've probably seen some of the artwork/doodles I've been working on as of late. I recently decided to hang some of them over my vanity/desk area. See, more color.
