The room's decor is simple and "quiet" for many reasons. First, it is quite calming at the end of a long stressful day. Second, and the BIGGEST reason, is that about two years ago I discovered I have a severe dust mite allergy! So, in order to keep the recurring sinus infections caused by the allergy at bay, we made some changes. We ripped out all the carpet and installed prefinshed hardwood flooring. We actually installed the flooring throughout the entire upstairs of our home ourselves. We also swapped our old mattress for a custom latex one (dust mites hate latex). We then kept the bedding and decor simple. Things that could be washed often. The decorative items have been kept to a minimum as well. I am happy to report I have not been sick nor had a sinus infection since transforming our room!!
|This is part of the wall to the immediate right when you come in the room. The flat screen is directly across from our bed and easy to view.|
|Close up of the gallery wall next to our large dresser/flat screen. This is a series of photos we shot of our girls down by the river for their Christmas cards two years ago. Again, we kept the frames simple.|
|A little closer look. We added a ruffle this time, and I love it!|

Hope you enjoyed the tour. As I said, there are still a few more things I'd like to do in the room but overall am really happy with the way it turned out.
