Color Crisis - Room Re-Do














...I am forever in the process of re-decorating ....every room in the house...and, when I should be working on the "to-do" list of seemingly more important things! But alas, I return to the "curation and creation" of new displays, new rooms, the incessant moving of furniture.
The current project: my soon to be 5 year old's room...
I started the project last week...here's where we are to-date...











The new floor went down on Thanksgiving...Micah stated the project -- coffee in hand -- at 5:45 am and it was done by noon. (Gotta love that laminate.) I packed up here treasures and cooked the appetizers for our Turkey Day feast, while he plodded away under Charlotte's watchful eye...next we moved the furniture and then set off to dine with the family...
But, oh no! Her vision -- or what I thought was her vision -- was lavender and sky blue....with an itty bitty bit of pink.... but, she panicked..."Where was her beloved pink?".... "How could we not include more pink?"

...And I ask can you think pink? (see this older post for more images and comments on the never ending pink parade) ...sigh, I should have seen this coming... what she really wants is to just move away from the green but keep the pink...she asks, on quite a regular basis, "Mommy why is there green everyplace in this house?".


At 4 she is already rejecting me and mine! ...and so we are shifting gears with good cheer! I am wondering where she gets all these opinions, this passion, this incredible impatience for what she wants, and for it to be juuuuust so! ...I am guessing you are saying,
"The apple doesn't fall far from the tree".

And so! ...I am back to work...resuscitating her pink passion, with an itty dose of black to dress things up a bit... more soon...
and until then..think pink!
