their room gets photographed more often than any other because it changes more often than any other. they are constantly moving things around, adding and subtracting depending on their mood/interests/needs. (meanwhile, dust gathers on the christmas wreaths and nativity set in the living room. but let's not go there.)
the cardboard playhouse the children got for christmas has finally been retired, after multiple reconstructive surgeries involving large amounts of packing tape. (edit: you can sort of see it here.) the sentimental child was sad to see it go, but i suppose having more space is a nice consolation prize for putting the poor thing out of its misery (the playhouse, not the child).
the desk and chair have been moved back to their spot under the window. the chair was mine when i was a little girl. i have contemplated painting it many times and then chickened out. maybe that's a good thing? i didn't notice the globe on the desk until i took these photos. it usually lives in the living room.
i was lazy about framing that calendar...can you tell? somewhere at this very moment the engineer is shaking his head and saying i told you so.
the boy's side of the room is looking kind of sparse. but his taste tends towards minimalism--less for aesthetic reasons and more out of a strong dislike for cleaning up. i have been meaning to order a guitar hanger for above his bed. he also wants a deer head. (?)
