Designing for my girls two can have it's challenges, and I am sure it is going to be even harder as they get older and more opinionated! All I can do is pile on the Elle Decor, Teen Vogue, Anthro catalogs and design books and hope for the best!! Once in a while they let their mom have free reign over their outfits - which usually means they have been bribed in some manner! Fashion bribes are 110% acceptable!
Even though Olivia is still in her jeans, a top and a hoodie fashion bubble, I try every morning to get her to wear something else. I don't get mad that she ends up in a different pair of jeans, different top and different hoodie every day (and converse-- breaks my heart! lol) life would be rough and loooong if I did. She's allowed to wear what she wants. She is starting to mix in a few different things here and there so I'll take what I can get. Fortunately, she was rather easy when it came to re-decorating her room and she loves the finished product! There are still a few finishing touches that need to go in -- I have yet to find the perfect yellow lamp as well as some storage bins for under her bed. But over all I'm pretty please with the result. Liv still wants a chandelier of some sort but we'll have to see about that....I'm not sure where to put it-- she has a fan in the middle of her room and we cannot live without that in the super hot summer months.
