Last week I decided to kick start Big Boy’s room redesign by joining the One Room Challenge. Honestly these last few weeks I’ve been feeling a little down because of my accident. Forcing myself to focus on redesigning his room has provided me with something fun to focus on. Week Two is underway, so I present to you my mood board for the room. You can see the influence my inspiration pics had, by helping me narrow down on the feel and mood of the room. The key furniture pieces in this room include a bed for sleeping, a desk for homework, and a chair + bookshelf for reading. Style wise I’m going with clean Scandinavian lines, but I want the wood to be lighter than in his last room, not the dark walnut like his last desk and nightstand. Also, I’m planning to add plants. I think they have a really calming effect. While my son is not agitated, he is sensitive and seems to get easily distracted. In terms of color story, I’m going with blues, greens, sand and grey. Basically colors you would easily find at the beach. I’m hoping the relaxing vibe of this room while help to create the right environment for him to blossom into tweenhood.
BTW- have you seen the projects being tackled by House of Brinson and Erica Reitman? They’re definitely tackling big projects with hand painted wall paper, and multiple rooms going on. I’m kinda glad that for me, this project is more of a decoration project than a full on construction project. I have enough of that going on at the Farmhaus. For this project, I can just focus on making it pretty. 🙂
Time to start shopping.
