Above is a photo of my son's bedside table. Normally, I like to use wall-mounted lights for kids' rooms because lamps won't get knocked over or take up valuable play space. However, this room has awkward spots that just fit two extra tables sitting in the garage! They'll be painted green later.
The grouping needed a third element to connect the tall lamp visually to the table. I've always liked hanging pictures low as a clutter-free solution. In fact, Montessori mama Barbara Curtis insists it's a must for kid-friendly rooms. My mom bought this rabbit print for $2 at Goodwill today. I love its realistic depiction, one that's artistic without being feminine. I think it looks great in its new home--and the tabletop is still free for books and that nightly glass of water.
