Name: Lucas Painter
Location: Lee's Summit, Missouri
When we were invited to a holiday party at the home of Adrean and Sonny Painter, we found ourselves sneaking away to snap a few photos of their son, Luc's robotronic lair of awesome. It's atomic in nature and packed with all his favorite things — Star Wars and Robots. This handmade space is packed with artwork, toys and most of all, color! Check out all the fun after the jump!
When Luc came into the world, the odds were great that he'd have a love for both robots and a galaxy far, far away. Both his father and Grandfather are quite the enthusiasts and Luc has followed in their footsteps. Every 2 year old reads stories about Wookies before bed right?
His space is open for lots of interactive play and it's a super-fun space to be in, even as an adult. From wall murals to art displayed around the space, most of the decor in Luc's room is handmade. Luc is surrounded by things he loves and people who care for him greatly, his room is a great reflection of both.
Inspiration:Luc's mom really wasn't a fan of all the children's bedding that was available so she designed her own! Really, who doesn't love Robots
Favorite Element: All the original artwork from extremely talented illustrators in the family.
Biggest Challenge: Finding an affordable crib that was cool and not girlie!
What Friends Say: They always love the colors and are amazed we did it all ourselves.
Proudest DIY: Atomic wall murals.
Biggest Indulgence: A brand new crib.
Best advice: Utilize the talent around you.
(Thanks, Luc, Sonny & Adrean!)
