Blogs for Digs...My childhood bedroom was...


Hello, and welcome to Blogs for Digs: " My childhood bedroom was..." creating awareness and benefiting Dwell for Dignity.  As an interior designer, I believe in Dwell with Dignity's mission, to help the less fortunate families create a warm and beautiful home to escape poverty and homelessness through design one household at a time.

My childhood bedroom was not my ideal bedroom, but nonetheless I had great memories of it.  My childhood bedroom was in Aruba, it was a brand new house that my parents built and it already came decorated for us with walnut paneled walls and a creamy yellow boucle window treatment.  I had to share the room with my brother, and had no say in how I wanted to decorate my bedroom, or in furniture choices.  The piece of furniture that I really wanted was a bunk bed.  I thought that a bunk bed was the coolest thing ever, that we could climb up and down the bed.  Sadly my mom opposed it.  She thought is was dangerous for us kids.  So I grew up with no bunk bed, but with walnut wood panels. 

If I could have decorated my room it would look more like this:

A very girly room, got to love that chandelier and that wallpaper is to die for!

Check out the lovely childhood bedroom of Green Gable and find out what piece of furniture we have in common, and stay tuned for Yams Designs' childhood bedroom on Jan. 5, 2010.  Interested in more childhood bedrooms, check out all the other participating blogs sharing their childhood bedrooms, and the piece of furniture they wish they had. 

Dwell for Dignity is a charity that I believe in, and I hope they will continue with their great work and expand to other cities.  And I would like to thank Claudia Clobes of Stonehouse Love, and Beth Dotolo of Hello Splendor, for bringing us together for this great cause.




Please Donate to Dwell with Dignity to make a change in someone's life.


Happy Holidays!!
