Anika’s room is LT and Faye’s old room. It’s the most mapreskong room in the house.
We didn’t change anything except the paint color which Anika chose. Nevermind that I didn’t like the shade. It’s too bright for me. I wanted a wall sana with light pink, dark pink and white stripes kaso ayaw niya. I let her decide. It’s a good exercise for her. I want her to feel na her decisions are important for us too. Eh big deal sa kanya yung room niya. I am hoping that by doing this, I’ll be able to instill in her confidence. Nice din kasi that she has a feeling of ownership of her room because she was the one who decided on how it will look like.
For the storage, I asked my architect friend, Bevs, for ideas. She suggested a row of low cabinets that can double as a window seat. Perfect. Anika loved the ideas kasi she wanted a space for all her stuffed toys.
The curtains were made by LT. The strawberry ceiling light, we bought from Wilcon. If you on off it, nagiiba iba yung ilaw from warm yellow, white to combination of yellow and white.
I designed her closet. That’s supposed to be a sliding door kaso lang yung design ko pang normal closet door. Kaloka. We had it rectified pa.
Her bed’s the one in our old house. We didn’t buy a new one anymore. Probably a better bed mattress in the future na lang. I just got her nice beddings (not the one in the photo above).
I took the red bookshelf that was originally in our living room in our old house and placed it inside Anika’s room. I wanted her to have a collection of books eh. Pinipilit ko talaga si Anika to read. Malaking bagay if someone is a reader. It can take her places!
So there. Malamang, we’ll just change the wall paint as Anika grows old. Her room with grow with her.
If you are asking if Anika sleeps in her room now, ummm.. no pa din. Hahaha! Well, there’s a day in a week siguro that she sleeps in her room and then she comes back sleeping in ours. I guess we’ll just have to embrace that. Time will come when she will like privacy na and then we’ll look back to this day. Sulitin na lang namin siya.
What do you guys think of Anika’s room =)
