Since we finally own our own home, I am so excited that I can finally decorate our rooms the way I want to rather than how a landlord thinks I should. (Which usually means drab white walls and little creativity.) While we liked our old rental home, it never truly felt like it was our home...It didn't reflect who we are, since we were not allowed to make certain changes in decor.
In our new home, I plan to make each and every room special. Pops of color, different textures and moods...We already have plans forming for almost every room in the house. Gone will be the hideous, ancient wallpaper in the formal living room...In will come my brand new stainless kitchen appliances, courtesy of the awesome folks at Maytag, and my counters will be the envy of the neighborhood, thanks to Giani Granite. We'd also like to eventually finish our gigantic basement and have a rec room and extra bed and bath put in. There are about a million changes we'd like to make, and I cannot wait to get started on our home renovations and after a lot of sweat equity, see the finished look.
There are certain rooms that are a bit of a challenge. Namely, the kids' rooms. You see, as a mom I know all too well that kids' tastes change regularly. A couple of years ago, my now 12 year old wanted to paint his entire room in a High School Musical theme...Then the next year, it was a Lady Gaga obsession...Now, he's an "emo", whatever that means. Thankfully, these phases seem to pass rather quickly.
So rather than do something as permanent as painting murals on the kids' walls, I started searching for easier ways to give my kids the rooms they want without having to spend countless hours and hundreds of dollars painting.That's when I discovered evgieNev. This is an amazing company that creates vinyl wall decals that are easy to apply, removable, and work on all wall surfaces. There are simply adorable nursery and kids decals as well as classy, elegant solutions for the rest of the home. They even offer some great wall quotes, which happen to be quite popular now. So as the kids grow and styles change, evgieNev can grow with them, and at a very affordable price!
