The hardest part of any design project is getting started. So let's dive right in...

(We have included third party products with the goal to help you navigate the web easily so you can focus on what matters to you. Purchases made through links on this page may earn us a commission.)

Hello and Welcome to 'This Decor Mom'.

Your child's room should reflect their personality. It should be a place that showcases their likes, their favorites and their potential. It should also be a place where they are comfortable experimenting with different styles. 

But what about the budget, you say? 

Exactly. While we love the idea of giving our kids the freedom to explore and identify their styles, we are the ones who have to dole out the dough for every change. Stay with me and I will show you how to stay within budget and give them the freedom at the same time.

Know exactly what you want? Check out the different decorating ideas based on Girls Room, Boys Room or Neutral Themes. 

We will keep adding to the list, so be sure to keep coming back for more...or let us know the theme you like and we'll make a page for it.



"Once upon a time, in a land far, far away..."

Magical words.

Words of fantasy and mystique that conjure places and beings as fantastic and wild as your imagination.

Looking at the world through a child's eyes is like watching a little slice of heaven.

A tiny squiggle is magically transformed into a Masterpiece. A mismatched pair of socks becomes a personality statement. A gap-toothed smiling picture is an adorable keepsake.

The imagination of our children is pure and absolute. A big block of Legos is a birthday cake. An empty cardboard box is an adventure-filled pirate ship. 

The living room suddenly transforms into green meadows with gentle breezes as your daughter lays out her picnic basket.

Our attempts to decorate kids bedrooms are simply a gesture to capture these magical moments.
