Ames Room

Well now that Ames is 15 months old his room is officially done! 
I've been dreaming of this room since before we were even expecting a baby. 
I always knew I wanted a room that was somewhat gender neutral, 
with a mostly neutral color scheme and pops of bright color. 

It's taken me 3 years to make and collect everything for his room,
so it's definitely a project that's near and dear to me. 
The green chair I found at an antique store while we lived in Iowa, 
and when I got it home, 
I realized on the bottom that it says it was also made in Iowa. 
So it's a pretty sentimental souvenir from our time in Iowa -
 especially since that is where Ames was born.
 I also made quite a few things in this room - 
like the mobile and some of the artwork 
and my mom made the beautiful quilt 
and helped me with the curtains. 

Ames loves to hang out in here during the day too. 
Mostly reading books or pulling things off of his shelf. 
Good thing it's pretty fun for me to style and rearrange it often :)
