Moving right along to the topic du jour, I’ve got TWO boy bedrooms to share today. And while I have two of them decorated and set up, they still sleep together in one. It is the sweetest thing in the world and I will never rush them to adopt their own spaces. In both rooms I let the boys lead the direction of colors and things they love, but tried to design spaces that fit the rest of the house and would grow with them for years to come. There are a few common things that I did in both rooms…
1. Original art
2. Plenty of space to nicely display favorite books, toys and treasures
3. Gallery walls for inspirational words and family photos
4. Good lighting for both playing (nice and bright), reading at night (lamps) and sleeping (dimmers)
Up first is John’s room. He desired a room with “blue, black and lots of fish”, and we worked on this space over the course of a year. Throughout our home I display things that we love and use family antiques, and the boy’s rooms are no exception. This room was originally two but a previous owner removed a wall to make one very large space. In addition to just sleeping, there is room to play and a dedicated desk area for school work and studying (down the road… we are not quite independent on these things). You can find many, many more details and all the sources for this room HERE.
While my little one has his very own bedroom, it’s really just used to hold his “treasures” and clothes at this point. He was only four when I did his room so he didn’t have a whole lot of demands as far as décor. He wanted one big crab for the wall and I left everything else very neutral. You can find many, many more details and all the sources for this room HERE.
