I never got around to giving June a proper nursery when she was a baby and I almost feel bad about it. I know, I know, it’s dumb and superficial to ruminate over such stuff; she doesn’t know she was deprived of monogrammed crib sheets, so why should I care?
The underlying reason I feel bad is because that time of her life is already over, gone, never to return, and I didn’t take the time to give it its proper due.
Which is why I’m so psyched to overhaul her room now…not simply because I want to give June her own special space, but it’s a way for me to try to capture and commemorate this all too brief phase of her life before she moves on to nail art and One Direction.
And that, my friends, is a rough transition into a post about carpet options for a toddler’s bedroom makeoever.
Should I go with wall-to-wall carpeting? An area rug? What about color?
The rug that’s in there now is from Afghanistan, shipped to me by Jake during his deployment last year.
I love this rug. But it just doesn’t say “cute little girl’s bedroom” to me so…it’s gotta go. (I’m moving it into the master bedroom.)
I’ve been doing a lot of research about the impact carpeting has on a space — particularly a toddler’s space — which will guide me as I prepare to make my purchase. Click through my slide show to see what I’ve learned so far. (And click here to see what color I just painted her room.)
