20 Something Moms 20 Something Moms

Cant decide

 Maybe I can get a tie breaker here. Hubby and I cant decide which way to decorate our sons room. He is 18 months and loves fish and automotives. Basically any kind of car, bus, train...anything with wheels. But he is also in love with fish. He has had a fish tank since he was 6 months old and will sit down and watch them for hours.

Right now he has a Disney/Pixar Cars sofa and chair that he kinda sorta uses but not really. A bunch of toy cars and things like that. As for fish stuff aside from a tank he doesnt really have anything underwater themed.

What do you all think?

They have wall clings for that... And I think it's such a cute and colorful idea for kids!!

Either one would work for a while. I pictured a fish driving a car but I'm weird. I would most likely pick the cars tho, I think theres more you could do. But I love the one fish two fish idea.

My son ALWAYS picks two options so I'm trying to work things together. Right now he said when we move he wants orange, his favorite color, and super heros. So I'm thinking I'd leave the walls a plain color and get a rug or two and swap out his beding every now and again.

Personally I'd just do a color scheme that can fit car/trucks/etc and add a few items to pull it together so that way when he is into his next thing u can hopefully change out a few items without having to re decorate the entire room.

 My husband and I actually thought of that just before bed LOL We like weird ideas so its no problem there lol Cars and other automotives definately be easier to find things for it than some fish themes

 Normally I would be all over this but I'm not allowed to pain the walls -.- I get why but it is a pain in the arse to live in a house with all white walls after living most places with nothing but white walls

Oh god my house is the same way. U can look at getting wall decals they are removable and reuseable and run 1-15 dollers on eBay.
