Boys room makeover

Two kids rooms in two weeks, folks. I’m practicing for the real deal; when Emily and/or Brian Junior grace us with their presence, then I’ll have like, five kids rooms under my belt so I can properly torture them with my unhealthy obsession of having their rooms be painfully adorable. But first, I must blog about Graham’s room, who lives across the hall from Grace (the tween bedroom from last week).

Graham is five and likes “Star Wars” and ninjas, rightfully so — those are both cool kid things to like. Thank God his obsession wasn’t Barney, because that could have been terrifying. Do kids even know who Barney is? Am I ancient? Although I’ll have you know that Grace (the tween girl) called me a “hipster,” which I instantly mouthed “Is that good?” to her mom, and got an “Oh yeah” as a response. Then days later she asked Orlando if he was a model, in which case he said, “Yes, of course.” Point being I’m pretty sure they don’t think we’re as old as we are, although that could be because I listen to One Direction with her, wear mid-riffs (no I don’t), watch “Vampire Diaries” (did, but don’t now) and generally act like an idiot most days to prove my immaturity around cool kids. I’m terrified about my mothering with my future uber-cool teenage daughter. I’m surely going to screw that one up. Grace asked me how old I was, I made her guess (of course), and she guessed 23. She’s a genius really and 100 percent correct. I am 23, Grace.

ANYWAY.

I’ll be posting Graham’s finished bedroom, photos by David Tsay, this week (hoping for Wednesday, Thursday at latest) but for now, please enjoy the mood board and the before photos for Graham’s bedroom makeover.

The dresser is an antique piece from the family’s grandparent’s country farm in Oklahoma. As a big fan of making a kid’s room feel timeless, I was happy to bring this piece into the design.

WAIT … Strangely the nightstand wasn’t numbered/linked so I apologize. It’s the Blake Nightstand, from Land of Nod.

So here is the before photo, which is not bad, just that the room is clearly not addressed yet since their house flooded:

Meanwhile, here’s a sneak peek into the finished space:

  1. i can’t wait to see the star wars room! my son loves star wars as well and his room is kind of industrial/vintagey/star wars!

  2. that’s right, if someone young thinks you are younger than your age, why argue! especially with geniuses :)

    can’t wait for the room reveal! is that the entrance door, it’s weird to have to step down to enter.

  3. This is a good idea. The rooms looks great. I think I will put together a collage to help redecorate my kitchen. I can’t wait to see the star wars room also, I think my nephew will love it.

  4. This is really exciting! I loved what Grace’s room turned into; I can’t wait to see what Graham will be getting wrapped up in!

    HA, Emily — LOL @ is (being called a hipster) good? My 8-year-old grandson told me, “You’re weird but cool!” the other week, + I was tempted to slap him a $20! ;-)

  6. This is going to serve as great inspiration for my son’s room. He’s only 3, but is already way into Star Wars, etc. so he would be pumped to see anything related to it in his room. I appreciate bringing those things he loves,but in a cool way, as you’re no doubt doing.

    Can’t wait to see more!

    I have a ninja-loving 5-year-old named Graham as well. Coincidentally, I used something from Land of Nod as a jumping off point for his room decor–the robot sheets designed by Julia Rothman. Looking forward to the big reveal!
