A room come true for a budding astronaut...

It's been a crazy few weeks - crazily busy at work as well as home! Diwali orders, expansion plans, and more...
So, while the blog was on the back burner, I decided to gift my son a room makeover - a first after The Pipal was started :)

Took months of planning and research, online shopping (I am an onlineshopaholic, if there is a term like that :-)), and voila, just before Diwali I put together everything!
It's a medium sized room (probably 10ftx10ft) with a study on one side and the bed on the other. The complete solar system (including Pluto) hangs from the ceiling - they are inflatable balls! The window valance has the solar system (excluding Pluto) appliqued and embroidered on it.
The floor cushion is 3.5ftx3.5ft and is a family favorite - everybody (including our dogs) loves to flop down on it! The rugs from Bibzy and wall stickers from Wallies perfectly match the theme. The one-eyed alien is a new addition to The Pipal's astronaut theme.
Have yet to add shaped curtain ties to complete the window dressing and am still looking for the perfect night light!
A lot new designs and projects in the works even while I write this post...but it's lovely to snuggle with my son in his bed looking for aliens and fairies (yeah fairies :-)) in the planets above...
