Now that is really cool ♥

Nick Klaus said...

I will be so happy when the words on walls in sans serif fonts trend ends. This just turns the trend up to 11.

Makes me feel sea-sick. I say nay.

Shelley Trbuhovich said...

where are they again, sweetie???!

designchic said...

Perfect for my imaginary beach house!!

Appletree said...

ugh.
but I like that little dresser.

Kristen said...

yowza...over the top

Julie @ Chapman Interiors said...

Oh, they forgot the word BARF.

tenderleaf said...

The colorway is nice. And my dog's name is Theo.

Jill Browning said...

The conflict would keep me awake at night. WTF.

Lisa said...

Once the 2nd grader learns those words, do they change it?

Julia said...

My fervent hope is that Theo and his brother will one day have the good sense to rebel and rearrange the letters. My scrabble-sense tells me there is some incredible bad-word potential there.

David said...

Do people put words on the wall when they just can't be bothered to find or make art?

I love the little cabinet between the beds though!

"It took Theo years of therapy, but eventually he got over his fear of refrigerator alphabets coming to get him in the night..."

Jessie said...

I love the concept but I will make some changes. I will make every alphabet smaller. The huge fonts and alphabets make me feel a little dizzy.

Cheesy and childish (as in not sophisticated at all!). The large fonts make the room feel teeny and claustrophobic to me. But I want that dresser!

Unoriginal DIY hell. Ugh.

I think I could get behind this trend (or whatever we're calling it) if I saw someone put "cocksucker" on their wall. At least I would know they had a sense of humor. Not so much when I see "family" or "love" or, well, really anything else.

Alcira Molina-Ali said...

Meh, the room's cute but the wall words look too retail-y to me.
Cheers and happy Monday, Alcira

Furniture and bedding is good, would have been so much better with some grasscloth wallpaper. Heck I could even get behind the cheesy oars on the wall look more than these words. I think I wouldn't mind the words so much if they were subtly painted on the wall in a pretty curvy font and tone on tone. This is just too instructional and in your face.

Wendy J. St. Christopher said...

I almost like it.

The really large letters are a definite improvement over the small and/or cursive type I've seen on other walls.

The blue cabinet -- well, I'd be up, in a frenzy some night, giving that overly-distressed relic a good sanding and a fresh coat of paint.

That's a look I've never understood.

Madam Pince said...

Overkill.

madmum said...

Cute for kids, but still my idea of hell, cabinet aside. It looks like a family room of the type of seaside-budget-but-trendy hotel you would find here in the UK. Ouch!

Modern Country Lady said...

I am happy to see there are enough letters on the wall to spell BAL o-ney
so I hope one day the parents will find a refreshing change to this letter wall :-)

I love it! Sorry.

I've never been a fan of words on walls - reminds me of themed rooms. They make me crazy. M.

mrs. anderdaddy said...

I'm not a big fan of words on walls, etc. Reminds me of my son's board books. Also, I have more art than walls (much of it awaiting framing), so this seems like such a colossal waste of wall space.

phillip said...

looks like a pottery barn ad.

maison21 said...

i'm keeping my thoughts to myself on this one- but i'm sure you can guess how i feel.

Maureen at The Inglenook Decor said...

whoa! they put beds now in seaside school?!

Becolorful said...

Very cool. Someone thought it was ugly except the dresser, The dresser is probably my least favorite element but I think the room is fun, fresh, and with a bit of an edge. I give it a 9.

It's a store, right? Tell me it's a store.

redbrickbuilding said...

I really dislike when people spell out words on the walls of their homes. Pedantic and visually dull. Buy some original art or mount some gorgeous fabric and call it a day.
