Miles' New Room

As I have mentioned before we recently moved to a new house in a new city. We bought a beautiful house with a bunch of boring white walls. So I have been very slowly and carefully picking out colors and working on decorating ideas for each of the rooms. 

The first room we decided to work on was Miles' room. 

I really wanted let Miles pick the color of his room as soon as we knew we were moving for sure I asked him what he wanted to do and without hesitation he yelled "Yellow!". Once we moved and were getting ready to start the whole painting process I got a little fearful of a whole yellow room. I thought I could convince Miles that a blue room would be better so I took a trip to lowes and bought some blue paint samples. When I got home I painted some blue squares on the wall and asked Miles what he thought. He looked at them thoughtfully and then asked "Where's the yellow?" 
Apparently Miles was not going to be convinced that blue was a better color for his room. I made my way back to lowes and chose a beautiful bright yellow and I also grabbed a quart of blue paint so we could have a little accent wall. 

I must say that Miles has good taste because I love his yellow room and more importantly he loves it too. Every time someone comes to visit he says "come see my yellow room!"

I would live in that room for sure! I love the exposed beams too. I think the yellow is fab!
