ari's room is the only one i consider "finished". except for a bedspread (he's attached to the floral one from our old guest bed) i don't have more plans for this space. i wanted something uniquely ari and something not too young because he is seven and we plan on him being in this room for a while. ari loves math....hmmmm a number theme? no. ari loves maps. he loves geography and he loves travel. BINGO! this is what i came up with...
the first two are time zones important to us and the second two ari chose as "important" places.
these are sheets i picked up at ross for the bed and used one to make a window covering.
the bookshelf with his globe and globe bookends
a travel chest i found for $10 on craigslist and a stack of LIFE travel books i got free at the school book sale. the globe balls were decor from the world collection at target that just ended.
