Silver Spring, Maryland
To create a not-too-cutesy big boy room for my son I reused nearly all of the pieces from his nursery, but this room has a much older feel simply because the walls are now a more mature color (Farrow and Ball's Light Grey).
I opted to stack the mattresses in an "L" shape so that my son would be able to crawl up to bed all by his big-boy self! (He is handicapped) The bottom mattress sticking out doubles as a reading spot under our sunny window. Also, the void under the top mattress is stuffed with boxes of out of season clothes. It works so well for us and I think he is proud of his room! (*and yes, the bookshelf is anchored to the wall).
Thanks Grace! Readers, Grace does decorative interior painting. You can see her work at Grace Paints.
