After living in our home for the last two years, we've slowly started renovating each space to suit our needs. For our two boys, however, I couldn't figure out what to do with their space. So it remained with builder grade paint and a few train posters on the wall. As it was time for my youngest to transition out of his crib and into a bed, I knew it was time to finally give their room the makeover that it deserved. From newly painted beds, artwork and innovative storage solutions, this room is now both functional as well as inviting.
The original inspiration came from the bedding that I found at IKEA. I absolutely loved the hip and quirky pattern that included animals playing instruments and sports, all on top of a soft teal blue gridline. The style we were going for was modern and neutral in the colors on the wall, while having pops of color throughout the space in various decor.
The beds we got from Kijiji (which is a Canadian version of Craigslist). They were actually bunk beds that we made into two singles. The bedding came from IKEA, as well as the orange geometric lights, the large oval art and both storage pieces. The various decor items, such as the deer head, letters, hexagon shelves, etc. came from HomeSense. The triangle wall decals are from Urban Decals.
The paint was all provided by Para Paints and here are the colors:
White Paint = Out for a Stroll
Gray Paint = Book Worm
Yellow Paint for Beds = Beach Tote
Green Paint for Shelves = Guest of Honour
