As so many of our clients and vendors are families with children getting ready to head back to school, we thought it would be fun to revisit our own school days and the truly stellar childhood bedroom designs that preceded the beauty we strive to create today.
Prepare to be surprised and somewhat amused as we flashback to
Team LFID in the late 90s and early 00s!
Read all the way to the end for an exciting special announcement from LFID and Sherwin Williams (and a chance for a fun freebie)!
