It happens to every parent eventually… our birds fly the coop… and my young rooster, Matt, will be moving out in about 6 months. I’m actually excited for him to experience life away from Mom but as you can imagine, a lot of my emotions are mixed about the whole thing. For example, today I was walking past a “for rent” sign for a basement suite just down the street. Perfect! Close enough to home that I’ll be sure to see him regularly! Ya… right. I hardly see him NOW. Besides, I’m absolutely positive that he wants to move a little further away from home!! ;-)
Shortly after we moved into our little house Matt asked me to do some research around what we could do with his room. He was excited with some of the rooms I found – just the kind of space he’d want. Now that he’ll be moving out (and because we’re doing a complete gut of the basement where his room currently is) I won’t be decorating his room… so I thought I’d share with all of you some of the rooms that inspired both of us.
The look he’s interested in is pretty simplistic, with warm/dark shades, hints of colour (at least he’d want a little colour) and clean lines… he already has the perfect bed frame… maybe I’ll be able to do something for his rental.
Of course he’ll have to keep his room clean to look as good as these bedrooms!
I should note: I’ve had these photos on file for about a year now and didn’t take note of where I found them from. Forgive me!
Poor me… my only kiddy will be leaving me soon.
BUT that means that once the basement is rebuilt I’ll have a guest room to decorate!!
Hey… gotta look for the positive in every negative! :-)
