Today I am finally revealing Shane’s Tween Room! If you remember I shared his mood board a few months ago, so sorry to keep you all in suspense for this long. Shane just turned 11, so I wanted to give him a space that felt comfortable & cool as he heads into his teen years. He really wanted a loft bed, a couch and fun seating options (for when his friends come over) along with some rustic touches. There is still a love for Star Wars and anything sports related so we layered that in as well. I partnered with ATG to turn this once uninspiring boys room into a tween’s dream space and we both couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out!
Today is the day! I am finally revealing Jack’s Modern Coastal Bedroom, the before & afters and all of the sources! It has been a few months in the making so I am super excited to share this makeover with all of you, mostly because I LOVE how it turned out. Before his space lacked, in every sense of the word. We kept a queen size bed in his room for “company” but rarely used it for such. The walls were blah and it was very uninspiring. As Jack got older I really wanted a space that felt creative and fun. A place he could get away and read or play his Lego’s. I also wanted it to reflect the things he loves, like the ocean and sea creatures, mostly sharks:).
As most of you know I have been busy working on my boys rooms. It seems like these makeovers have taken me months, I have waited so long to do these rooms that I want to do it right. I don’t like to rush design, that is when I make mistakes. Plus, it is way more fun to be deliberate about the things you plan, choose and eventually select. For me the hunt is my idea of a good time, anyone else? So you can imagine my excitement when I found these stunning & playful whale prints below from Minted. Since I was/am going for a modern coastal look in Jack’s room I loved the abstract nature of these watercolor prints. I can just picture these in a beach house that has a rustic, modern aesthetic, can’t you? In any case they are just perfect, so I had to share.
When I was asked to be a part of Beth’s Thrifty for Under $50 blog hop I was thrilled! Who doesn’t love a good challenge and an excuse to save some money? I know I do! Since I was in the middle of Jack’s Modern Coastal Room Makeover I thought why not go bold and paint his dresser I bought for a steal, navy blue.
Hi there friends! I am finally ready to share the inspiration board for Jack’s room! I probably should have done this a little sooner as we are almost ready for the reveal but never the less, I think it’s nice to see the design elements separately in a mood board. We were going for a functional space that felt fresh, playful and modern, oh yeah and coastal too. We live coastally and it’s a huge part of our life, through every season we find ways to explore the beach plus Jack LOVES ocean life so I thought let’s do a modern take on coastal with a surf + turf color palette would make it feel naturally connected.
Hi friends! I hope your week is off to a great start. Last week we had our winter break, so we were home for a few days and then mixed it up by heading HERE for a long weekend. It is a…
