I HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED THIS FINAL REVEAL!!!!

ALL IN ALL THIS WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE…I CHERISHED THE TIME I SPENT WITH MY SON ON HIS FIRST “OWN” ROOM…OTHER THAN THE ONE ROOM HE OCCUPIED A CRIB IN THE NURSERY. IT WAS SOMETHING I WISH I COULD GO BACK AND DO OVER AND OVER AGAIN….DESPITE OUR DIFFERENT TASTES AND STYLES…

MY BABY WILL ALWAYS BE MY BABY
MY BABY WILL ALWAYS BE MY BABY

OUR CHILDREN GROW UP TOO FAST…AND THIS IS THE ROOM WHERE COOPER PLAYED FOR HOURS WITH LEGOS AND THE ROOM THAT COOPER WILL LEAVE FROM FOR COLLEGE … HE MADE IT HIS OWN…AND THE LEVEL OF COMPROMISE WAS GOOD FOR ME …

IT WAS A LESSON IN RESTRAINT…BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT KIDS ROOM…TEEN ROOMS ESPECIALLY…NEED TO BE STREAMLINED…KIND OF A BLANK SLATE AT THE ONSET…WITH LOTS OF ROOM FOR THEM TO EXPRESS WHO THEY ARE…WHO THEY ARE BECOMING…THE TRUE REVEAL OF THIS ROOM WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE NEXT 4 YEARS…AS COOP EXPERIENCES LIFE!

THANKS FOR FOLLOWING ALONG….

 

 I AM ALREADY THINKING ABOUT WHAT ROOM I WILL DO NEXT SPRING!!!
 HINT….ART STUDIO!!!!!
