“I’d rather be a boy and play with paper airplanes, than be a man and play with a woman’s heart.” – Niall Horan

 Once people start to update their home and see the transformation, it’s hard to leave the kid’s rooms untouched when they are in dire need of an age appropriate remodel.  This client’s little boys are becoming young men and a few simple changes completely transformed their rooms, making them suitable for tweens entering their teens.  We tried several blue samples on the wall, none of them were really speaking to me.  I found the perfect grey and decided to go in completely different direction.  The result was a mellow and mature bedroom fit for a young man.

Crown molding and new base boards painted in white lacquer are an economical way to make a huge impact within a space.  Grey bedding accented with a chevron throw and a vintage silk scarf turned custom pillow.  An electric blue cow hide warms up the dark wood floors.  Furniture from Ikea is the perfect choice for a budget friendly remodel.

Adios to the kinder wall decals, and baby blue!   Hello to masculine neutrals!  After painting his brother’s room Benjamin Moore’s Timberwolf, we decided to do the same in here.  This funky custom pillow was created from curtain panels I found at an amazing vintage store in San Francisco on a shopping trip with Jess.  A patchwork hide rug adds a funky touch and makes this room unique from his brother’s.

Kids rooms are easy, fun and affordable to update.  Ikea is an amazing resource for things like this and will last until they are off to college.  Until then….
