Kids Rooms

Since the kids' rooms are upstairs, we don't do much in there except sleep and read. I didn't really plan their rooms to be blue and pink but it just turned out that way! They both love to try out our new wall graphic sets as soon as they are printed, and the ones they have liked best have stayed in their rooms.

Sid's Room:
All the furniture in his room are buys from garage sales or charity shops. My favourite picture is the Hindi Alphabet chart that we brought back from our last trip. Like most little boys, he loves to collect sticks, stones, feathers, and all kinds of curious objects. He uses the various containers I find to house these collections. I'm still looking for the right storage solution for his room - waiting for Ikea to come to Tampa!

Anya's Room:
She loves pink, can you tell?! Her bed is actually a sofabed from Ikea that is now discontinued. The bedcover is from India in bright pink silk. The rug is a gift from my sister when Anya was born. Anya chose the little wardrobe for her room on one of our thrifting trips together and I have to say it is perfect for her. Just her size, and the perfect design. The large picture above her bed are from the portrait day we had at our house when we all had the flu - we painted pictures of each other and some self portraits too. It's not very good in the artistic sense, but it's a fun memory for us. The little framed pictures are postcards from wee wonderfuls.
