I love the fresh start of a Monday!
A new day. Another chance to create.
If you follow me on Pinterest I'm sure you've seen me pinning for H.'s big boy room. Working on spaces in my own home is always more difficult than designing for others. But I think I've nailed down a plan.
At first look it may not appear to be a room for a little boy.
However, this room falls in line with my overall design philosophy to design for long term. The accessories and art are what transform the room into his.
Originally I had planned to search Craig's List for wood headboards I could paint. I looked for weeks, and my friend Sally even sent me a nice option, but nothing was exactly right. THEN I found this brass twin bed on amazon for $29.27 and bought two. I'm already obsessed with brass and how could I resist that price?
They're a little on the shiny side, so I'm guessing I'll have to
tone them down a bit.
I also found these vintage sports posters on art.com.
I may add more vintage sports pieces to the mix. My friend Amanda mailed me a set of vintage Michigan State University Football cards.
Again, how can I resist?
The sheets are another subtle, fun element, that make this
room for a little boy.
This is how it all comes together.
I hope you like it-- I know my little man will love it.
