Reason's Bright Retro Fun Room

My Room

Name: Reason (nearly 2)
Location: Nashville, Tennessee

As soon as we found out we were having a boy I got to work. My mission was to create a well designed room that was pleasing to the eye but most importantly that Reason would love and feel comfortable in.

Design words I used to describe what I was going for: bright, midcentury modern furniture and finishes, functional, comfortable, intentional, personal. He loves spending time in there and as it turns out, we all do too.
