City chic & a love for Haiti....















































Well.....what can I say, this is Meg's room! At 19 you would think her room would be filled Cosmo magazines & party pictures....but not my Meg....she picked a colour that reminded her of Haiti and filled her room with photos and memories of there.....the iron heart(from Haiti) is her most loved treasure & the photo below it was a gift from me because I knew she would love it...three big bright enlarged photos of Haiti on her wardrobe and the rest in black and white fill her room.....the last photo is her favorite...it speaks volumes don't you think? Hope you like her room as much as we do....and how about the brick wall...lucky girl!! ~Chrissy~

Hi - Very chic and sophisticated! !9 eh? Yes, the photo does speak volumes. Thanks, I enjoyed seeing the photos and the peek inside the Haiti story.

Very stylish! You are extremely lucky...19 year boy rooms are no where near as easy on the eyes and require a closed door at all times! :) It turned out very pretty. What a special girl you have ~

Hope all is well...I think fall has arrived here...windows are open and there's a chill in the air. Guess it's time to fall decorate!

You must be very proud!

what a young sophisticate, and the Haiti pictures were so heart warming. I just loved the ones with all of the hands, that was so heart warming.

warm wishes

Hi Chrissy !

You are such a sweet heart, thank you for being happy for me, love that !! I hope your weekend was as good as mine, hope the weather was nice! Good weather always has a great effect. Do you like Autumn ? I love he crisp air and that the greenery appears in all these great colours..

This room is quite minimalistic and grown up, but very suitable for a girl who`s only 19. But also very unlike your style I have to say. I am guessing she is quite fashionable with a strong positive character, a fun girl ! :)) I loved pink as well.

I hope you had a good day, enjoy your evening as well !!

Lots of hugs,
Aina

Hi Chrissy,
You did a fantastic job of creating a stylish room that is your daughter's own personal style!
I loved seeing all the pictures of Her travels to Haiti. How proud you must be!
Take care,

Her room is gorgeous! I really love the white wall with the red and balck. Very chic! What comes to my mind when I see her photos is that she must have a really big heart. Those kids must have stolen it, too.
Hugs, Cindy
