Kid's room

On Sunday, with Anush away at a function with her grandma, Navy and I decorated her room with decals from blik ,sent on my request, by my K maama.

Anush came in earlier than expected and helped stick on some of the leaves. The larger stickers are dificult for kids to manage since they lump up or develop folds if done while jumping with joy, and I realised kids' fingers are really small - even a tall kid like Anush.

Incidentally the TOI property Chennai edition featured her room picture this weekend, in a feature on child decor. Of course, with credits but no details, unlike the last time. But Anush and I were excited enough to wake Navy up before seven, on a Saturday morning.
When I think about my room as a child, I had my first "own space" as I entered 7th standard. I had Boris, Sabatini ( both from Sportstar) and Wham posters on the wall. I had a few car/ vintage plane stickers on my cupboard.
I loved the mani plant I kept on my table in an old cognac bottle, a beautiful shell collection in a see through jar, a snap of my folks and odd knickknacks collected on trips. I had a wicker book rack and prided my collection.
As I grew to love sketching, my "works" adorned my wardrobe doors. And I also was granted a gorgeous chocolate brown wooden book shelf as my book collection grew.
And of course there was the loyal cot- diwan which has time travelled with me.
My room was really neat ( not counting my wardrobe insides !!) It still is that way.
