Let's jump right back into the playroom eye candy, shall we? The last post was mostly about storage and the bigger things in the space. This time it's all about the decor - because what fun is a playroom without lovely things to look at and spark the imagination? NO fun!
Seriously, the first thing I'm putting in the room is a pink Christmas tree. Fo' real. This past Christmas was the first one where Emmy sort of 'got' what was going on, and let me tell you - the tree and the lights were the most amazing things to her - it was true love at first sight. So I'm going to have a tree in the playroom for us to decorate for every different season and holiday! And pink just to save the real green one for Christmas. :) The hubs even agreed to it! :O
To counterbalance the overwhelming artificiality of a pink tree, I want to bring in some living stuff. I think either a cool potted plant or a terrarium! I'm leaning towards the terrarium because of the scale of it - I think it'd be more interesting to Emmy than a random houseplant. Here's a really cool set:
Pretty kid friendly! And we could have many! Totally dig the painted lid with the critter on top, too. The only expense for these really would be the plants themselves! Score.
I'm sure that in time the walls will be covered with Emmys various masterpieces (masterpi?), but until then, the walls'll need some lovin'! I came across this sort of mini gallery wall below... What struck me was the dress! I am a big fan of gallery walls, especially ones with unexpected elements; ones that aren't solely framed art.
The first thing I thought of when I saw that was the Sunshine Sunsuit! It's not going to fit her ever again, so what a nice tribute to hang it on the wall for all eternity, no?! Plus the bright yellow will be a nice burst of color, since we're talking basement here. Oh, and I love everything else in the above room too.
