My 5 year old DS is a HUGE Mario Bros. fanatic. He is SO excited about this new room of his. Dh and I found the wall decals online and Dh's sister (who is an interior designer and has an amazing eye for color) helped us with the paint colors and the decal layout. I am so thrilled with the end result and my DS is happy beyond words.

The room is painted brown on the bottom (the same color as the brick on the decals) and light blue/greyish on the top.

And yes, cflorkie and lissa...I think my Dh enjoys living vicariously through his DS's! lol
