Erika & Quinn’s Room

This does not relate to our adoption process, but I wanted to share it since we just closed on our house yesterday! We are slowly moving in. One of the things I have been thinking about is the room which will be Erika and Quinn’s. We planned this out as we prepared to move in. I am nervous that they will end up not coming home, and I sort of feel that planning out their room before we even complete our home study is “putting the cart before the horse”. But,  I can’t help having ideas. We don’t know Erika and Quinn at all, beyond their photos and description, so basically, I am dreaming up a totally awesome room for a 2-5 year old boy or girl. Good plan?

We chose this room for a very specific reason. Not proximity to the bathroom or master bedroom… or the great natural light… No, we chose it because of the odd doorway to the small closet-like space. Seems totally weird?

A few months ago, I saw a photo of a hidden playroom– someone had a space like this and they cut a hole in the back of an armoire and used that as a “door” to the playroom.

Doesn’t it just scream… Narnia??? I think our space is probably smaller, but oh well… I know when I was younger, I loved secret places and forts.  If they don’t like it, it would still be a convenient place to toss all of the toys when someone is coming over!

There are a lot of other things that I’d love to incorporate in their room…  my some of my all time favorite fabrics are the sock monkey fabrics by Moda. I would love to base the rest of their room around those fabrics.

I think that it will be aqua and red– which sounds like a hideous color combination, but it is actually super cute.

A less feminine and more kid-friendly version of this… I just love the barely blue walls with the bright red curtains.

So is it totally crazy that we are already planning this out? It’s not like we have started buying things for their room, but I love to be thinking about these things.

  1. Hi! I found your blog through RR. Pottery Barn Kids has some great examples of how you can do a shared boy/girl room that looks "matched." I love looking at their site for ideas of how to do my boys' rooms. Good luck on your adoption journey, I look forward to reading more of your blog!

  2. I am loving the secret hideaway idea! And I am loving your blog! I am so glad Erica has a family. She is super cute and I have been in love with that hair for a while!Now you have another follower…
