The guiding theme for this room was traditional modern meets pop culture with a dash of global style. It's a mixture of what we all like. My boys are into superheroes and Legos, and I like boys' rooms that are classic and modern with a multicultural influence.
Through the process I've learned to give and take. My boys ( and husband) insisted on marking up the pendant light, free hand with a black marker, to make it look more like the Death Star (eek), and after much resistance, I just gave in. Not exactly what I would have done, but at least the room truly reflects them.
