It finally happened. You’ve been informed by your child that their room is “boring”. It needs to look different. They don’t know how they want it to look, exactly, they only know that the room where they text friends, read books, play games, do homework, sleep, and generally relax is “blah”, and it has to change.
So how do you change a room that’s perfectly fine—okay, maybe a little bit ordinary—and fill it with life? More importantly, how can you do this wonderful makeover without having to break the piggy bank?
This is where mystical, magical stripes come in. Stripes can make your child’s room (and your room too, if you wish) so it will be full of life. And never again will the room be considered “blah”.
