I know it seems like it has taken me a long time to finish the kids’ rooms!! In reality the majority of the work has been done for a while, just tough to catch the room clean enough for good photos!! 🙂
This room belongs to my youngest who is a lover of animals, nature, and music. I helped with the general direction of the room, but he chose the color scheme. It was difficult to do brown and green (with a little navy here and there) and not end of with camouflage, but I think we did ok.
The wall color is actually Spanish Moss from Martha Stewart mixed in Glidden paint and it really is more of a light mossy green rather than the strange lime color showing in some of the pics!
His favorite animal is the giraffe, so of course I had to incorporate giraffe print somewhere. The brown curtains were ones I had on hand, but they were too short. So, I added a band of giraffe print to the top. A simple nod to his fav.
He’s a bit opinionated on how things are gonna be in here. So, despite the fact that my plan was one large gallery wall, we ended up with two smaller ones. And, ya know, I like it that way. I’ll share more details on this soon.
He wanted something unique for his bed and when I suggested tie-dye he was all over it! This really expresses his personality! We had a lot of fun creating this duvet cover together. 🙂
And, don’t forget the super easy DIY trundle bed hubby and I created! It worked great when my oldest was home for Christmas break and I’m sure it will get a lot more use this summer!
The bookcase is actually a cheapy laminate one that we have had for years. With a little elbow grease, paint, and wood-look contact paper it is a new creation! I adore that he still loves his stuffed animals and toys…:)
His desk is organized to his liking, and covered with all of his treasures. 🙂
It is just right for him to go and hang out amongst his things, do some homework, or work on his music. He loves it which means so do I!

Cute! I love that custom pillow and the wall art! What a fun room!
How nice to see a bedroom decorated for a young boy. So many designs out there for babies and girls. Love the browns and greens!!

Denise HOW AWESOME is it that you and your son made that duvet together!!!!! And that you incorporated all his favorites into the room – nature and the giraffe fabric, the wall color that he wanted – you are such a fun and thoughtful mama. Lucky kiddo. Hope you are both enjoying this refreshed space! We have two trundles in this house by the way, and they are pulled out almost every single weekend with extra bodies sleeping over!
