Supporting Blog For Digs

blog for digs

The holiday season is the season of giving.  We are all excited to give and receive gifts, and we can also use our love for gift giving to help those in need.  Today I want to let you know about Blog for Digs.  It’s an effort lead by interior designer and blogger, Claudia Clobes.  Working in partnership with Dwell with Dignity, and designer Beth Dotolo of Hello Splendor, Blog for Digs is an opportunity for bloggers and readers to give back.  Over the next few weeks you will see over fifty of your favorite bloggers posting about the Blog for Digs effort and supporting Dwell with Dignity’s mission to help families escape poverty and homelessness through design – one household at a time.  Bloggers will be spreading the word about this effort by writing about one of their favorite spaces – their childhood bedroom.

My childhood bedroom was pink.  It was the first room I ever decorated.  The theme was Strawberry Shortcake – my favorite doll at the time, and lots, and lots of pink.  It actually looked a lot like the photo above.  Totally 80s, definitely over the top, but extremely cute.

Pretty daybed

Today, I think I wouldn’t go so kitschy with this room, but instead would bring in some of my favorite elements to express my Strawberry Shortcake love.  A cute daybed with pink cushions would do the trick.

Or some striking pink and white wallpaper would look gorgeous in my modern Strawberry Shortcake bedroom.

And if there was just one decor item I wish I could have had as a kid in my room it would have been a bunk bed just like this.  Part bunk, part little girl play castle, I would have spent hours playing here.

Tomorrow, learn about Helena from A Diary of Lovely‘s childhood bedroom.  And please take a moment to visit the Dwell with Dignity website and donate to help create beautiful rooms for those children and parents in need.
