Yam's Bedroom

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Leviton for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

This summer, one of the items in the long to-do list  is Yam's room. It's about time we  redo her  room. She has outgrown the butterflies in her bed sheets and the flowers on her walls. We are thinking of repainting the walls from pink to red/orange. She wants something bold and bright.

She wants to do most of the things herself -pretty much how she and her sisters did with her room the first time they painted and decorated it. Like last time, we  guide her in making decisions, but we step aside when it comes to the hands-on task, so she can fully experience most the job. She wants to change almost everything including the old butterfly  light switch has to go.

As early as now, Yam has been excitedly checking stuff online. She enjoys  browsing around for little things like  curtains, pillows and pillow cases and such. She discovered several notable sites. One of which is   Renu
