I have been slowly collecting things for our apartment. Last week I put together N's room (its still not fully done) and this is how a part of it looks -
Here is a close up of N's art work & keepsakes that I have put up. Most of it is laminated so that it lasts longer.
The colourful cushions idea was borrowed from my sister-in-law (actually S' sister-in-law - his elder brother's wife). She is very artistic and has a great taste in things. Her house is spotless (even with 2 kids) and is a reflection of her creativity. I decided to get the multi-coloured cushions since they go with almost all of N's bedsheets and they bring an instant pop of colour that I like.
I picked up the bedsheet from FabIndia - its got cock-a-doodle-do's (as N calls them) all over with an orange border.
