I soooo wish I had a picture of my childhood bedroom... Here's a visual: Hot pink, light pink and white wall to wall shag carpet and a BOLD floral pink and white pattern on the wallpaper, curtains, and bedspreads (all the same pattern of course). And I'm not making fun of my mom - it was the height of fashion then. I lived in a hot pink cloud and couldn't have been happier. I remember when the shag rug got old, she replaced it with purple cut pile wall to wall, and of course I got new fabrics, too (the same bold purple floral pattern on the walls, fabrics, and windows again). When I was in my twenties, and even into my thirties, I wouldn't touch wallpaper with a ten foot pole. And I especially wouldn't match the fabrics to it! Well, wallpaper sure has come a long way. Look how fresh and new that style looks, and I love it again:
I wonder if in thirty years we'll be cringing at these? I kind of doubt it:

I LOVE this idea for a child's room (and not just for a boy!)
