  • I would do your bedroom in something relaxing and romantic without being too girly. You could use grays or greens (like a sage or olive) mixed with ivorys, and small pops of color. You can put candles in different places and some blown up black and white pictures of you and your SO on the walls.

    As far as bathrooms go, they have some cute sets at Target. I would let your kids pick out what they wanted for one and then whatever you liked for the other.

  • I'm a big fan of the styles in the Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel and CB2 catalogs.
