Simon is braver than I am when it comes to color. We've been living in this house for five years and haven't even attempted to paint or decorate any rooms. But Simon wanted to do something with his. He told me he was too grown up for his bug themed comforter, so we headed out to IKEA for some new stuff. Simon also needed a new dresser and nightstand, so we picked up those as well. Then we went to Home Depot and let Simon pick out his own paint color. The result is pretty bright, but he seems to like it.
