kid design

Once upon a time when I was 9, my family built a lovely house in a lovely suburb. I was allowed to pick the carpet color for my room (hardwood hadn't quite made the resurgence/resale value that it has today). Being awesome, I picked dark emerald green. And soon had an emerald green valance to match. Seafoam green bedding and walls arrived in middle school. Sweet. The only thing that saved it was my grandma's awesome antique sleigh bed and dresser that I inherited, although they probably looked out of place. Somewhere in high school my budding designer kicked in and I became interested in antiquing, furniture, and generally not having an all-green room.

What I would do now if I could redesign my childhood room....
