I'm no Martha Stewart but I can totally ROCK Retro-Chic...

I am once again linking on up with the  Pretty Much World Famous Writing Workshop with Mama Kat.

Assignment:  Share your favorite part of your child's bedroom.

When I found out I was pregnant I was so excited.  Mostly because Daddy Dave and I were being blessed with a child but following VERY closely behind was the fact that I was going to be able to decorate a Nursery! 

If finances allowed and Dave wasn't such a minimalist, I would redecorate every year often.  Since neither is, nor will be my reality, having a baby was my ticket to design...LOL!

When we found out we were having twins and one was a little boy and the other was a little girl, I was even more excited...a million dollar family in one shot BUT my decorating balloon deflated just a tad because I now had to be a little more neutral with the decor. *sigh*

After considering my options and short of having to use a predetermined nursery theme of jungles, Noah's know gender neutral patterns, I went  with what I like to call Retro-Chic...

2 cribs, 2 dressers & a lazyboy...
Tight Fit but We Made It Work

Ave's Side of the Room. The funky "stick-ons" are kinda Retro.

Bryce's Side of the Room.  The furniture and "Art Work" is totally Chic Don't You Think?

I LOVE These Letter Pictures

This Would Also Be Part of  the Chic Decor.  LOL!

The focal point of the room was this totally AWESOME Retro mirror!

I also LOVED the babies bedding...

A perfect mix of Retro-Chic in my mind!
If I HAD to pick one aspect of Ave & Bryce's Nursery that I loved would be a total tie between the "Letter Alphabet" frames that spelt their names and the huge green, funky mirror! 

Daddy Dave and I had so much fun working together to create this sleep haven for our two beautiful miracles.  It was a shame that they only shared the room for a few months before we had to move Bryce to his own room (the constantly woke each other up).  Although,  on the bright side, I did get to redecorate TWO rooms...Fun! Fun! Fun!

Need some inspiration?  Go Link Up With Mama...
