It’s time for the One Room Challenge Fall 2021 edition. I’m excited to get started. Our previous projects, the backyard makeover and my master bedroom have become favorite spaces, so I\’ve got high hopes!
My son’s room needs so much attention.
As far as bedrooms go…I mean…it’s fine. For a nine year old. But, look at it from a design standpoint? Yikes. We’ve got work to do.
Eight years ago, we moved here, and his bedroom was the first one I painted and decorated. He was 16 months old at the time, so we went “big boy” blue, trying to make it transitional space with simple decor.
The Color Scheme
I want to stick with a basic palette…one that will span the next eight years. I took the Silver City foundation paint color–that we used recently to repaint the first floor–combining it with an accent of black.
Then, I’m going to try to work in a bit of red. He’s been asking for a red accent wall for years, but I’m going to work in a small amount.
The Theme: Literary Inspiration
He’s definitely a book lover–very invested in the characters. It’s the “series” books he loves. There’s comfort in the familiarity of seeing favorite characters go from one adventure to the other.
(I need to make this happen.)
I’m keeping the idea of literary inspiration in the forefront of my mind. And, there’s just SO MUCH INSPO.
Creating a space for a nine and a half year old is a challenge, right? I’m going to rely on budget-friendly decor and pieces that can be moved to other spaces in our home as he grows and changes his mind.
