I'm pretty sure that's not what you had in mind. Even if it was, you could be doing it to honor the firefighters, so it still should not be offensive. It's your room and you can decorate it any way you want. I think it's nice.
That's what I was thinking...my friends birthday, Belle, is on 9/11...lol

I don't think you did anything wrong.
Yeah, I agree. She could have thought you tried to design it after 9/11, so she thought that was offensive; designing a room about something horrible that happened, even though you weren't trying too.

Mary,
I think it is not offensive at all, I actually think it's a really nice room. Maybe she found the room offensive in her opinion because she might live in New York and your way of arranging your stuff is not how she thinks it looks...
Does that make sense? IDK..
I hope this helped you a little

I think it's really nice! You did a good job on it! And I don't think it's offensive. If someone else does, you don't have to change it. If you like it, I think you should keep it!
