A Room to Grow With Dylan

Professional Project

Project by: Jodie Rosen Design
Location: Canada

This is a big boy room for a 3-year-old boy, Dylan. The room is accessorized for a 3-year-old but as the child grows, the main pieces will remain age appropriate, and grow with him.

This room started with the amazing fabric sourced from Tonic Living. From this jumping off point, we selected the Monte Design Toddler Dorma bed colours of charcoal with a navy pipe. This upholstered bed was chosen as it is sophisticated and will grow with the child, but also comes with the matching upholstered rails so the room isn't taken down a notch with cheap removable rails. 

The navy chalkboard wall is a great focal point to the room and anchors the bed. Adding the distressed wood and metal letters adds a personal touch without feeling too juvenile. On the opposite wall, narrow custom shelving provides a great spot to house some of Dylan's toy trucks and cars. The metal bolts add an extra touch (and cover up the drill holes where the shelves were fastened to the studs!). 

Thanks, Jodie!
