We finally finished Isaac's 'big boy' room. He just turned 10 on the 20th (OMG, I can't believe he's ten already) and he really wanted a Karate style room. He loves Karate. I, however, envisioned a sleek modern Asian-style room. It's not that I don't appreciate that aesthetic, it's just not my style. So I combined the Karate theme with some Americana stuff and kind of have an Asian-Americana Fusion room going on. Here it is:
here. It took Jason such a long time to do this ceiling about 7 years ago that when I suggested we paint over it, I thought he was going to do violence. So it stayed. I like it though the colors are great and it's different. Don't look too closely though, when I was writing out the names, I sometimes wrote them in the wrong direction...oh well.
Upper Case Living wall decals. My friend Angela sells this stuff and I have it all over the house. I admit this is my favorite so far! You can order from her (no matter where you live in the U.S.) from her website here.
His 'brag' wall. I'm not one for putting all the boys' trophies etc in the common living spaces. But it's nice for them to see their accomplishments.
here on Etsy I love Etsy.
flea market called Paris Street Market a couple times during the summer. For awhile I was going to go with a whole new bedroom set from Ikea. I wasn't thrilled with it, but it was going to go with the colors and theme. Then we saw this in one of the "booths" and I fell in love with it. I was so afraid it was going to be too girly but Shannon said she thought it would work great. So a quick trip to the ATM and this baby was mine. Unfortunately, I had my Honda...but guess what (this is totally fate) my other friends, Kendra and Colleen also happened to be there and had a mini-van and lived a couple doors down from me. So we loaded it up in their van and they delivered it for me. I love my friends.
Paris Street Market. Then found these metal Karate figures at this online artisan metal shop that I originally came across on Pinterest (freaking addicted, but got some great ideas for Isaac's room. Anyhow, Jason attached the Karate guys to the flag...
