hello all. we just purchased a new home and i wanted to do something special for my 7 year old boy who deserves the world.
he has really gotten into the whole space thing and i wanted to surprise him and decorate his room as if he were an astronaut in space and blow him away.
tell me what you think:
i was thinking about painting his room from the ceiling to about 3/4 of the way down in a grey silver color and the other 1/4 down in a black with maybe a space border or chair rail seperating the the two colors. my wife is against the black (she thinks its too dark) and wants to paint the room blue. i personally dont like the blue and think the silver grey / black would look better.
i have the ability to print poster (and even bigger) sized pictures at work and have some high resolution pictures of outer space that i will blow up and make a focal point in his room. i will then print some 8 x 10's and and put them around the room.
i was going to buy a battery operated star planetarium to produce the constelations on his ceiling but i cant find a decent one that will look good. so i have opted for glow in the dark stars and align them on his ceiling accordingly. along with a black light
i have seen a lamp (looks like a lava lamp) with an alien inside to put on his night stand.
i was also thing about a glow in the dark solar system hanging from the ceiling and maybe a rocket model hanging as well.
any thoughts and or suggestions in helping me make my sons room a hit? i am open and very flexible with plans.
