Re: can you show me pics of your 5-7yo boys room
I can't post pics now, but my sons' room looks the same as it has since they were born - Double bed, book shelf, dressers, quilt rack, bean bag chairs, rocking chair, rocking wooden boat, rug. We don't do toys in the bedroom (other than stuffies, which live in the corner with the beanbag chairs) and the decor hasn't changed. It's red, blue, and navy with sail boats. Our boys share the double bed. The room could last them through the teen years with only so much as touch up on the paint (light blue, but not pastel). My boys are 3 and 6 if that helps. If he isn't bothered by it, wait until he asks for something different. When our kids want to change their room, we will select a bunch of "approved" paint colors and let them choose what they want. Keeping the "decorations" to a minimum helps immensely, IMO.
