We’ve had a busy week around here.
Not only did I add a little holiday cheer to my son’s bedroom, but we also bought him a new queen sized bed!
This is the Beadboard Basic Bed from Pottery Barn Teen. The twin sized bed was not working for him anymore…
This is how the room looked just the other day.
I loved this little bed and I actually cried when my husband took it apart! I get so attached to their childhood things and I get sentimental every time I make a change in one of my boys’s rooms! My son will be turning 10 (gasp!) in a few weeks and has been asking for a bigger bed. (Plus – our dog, Rosie needs more space when she sleeps with him!)
Well this bed is definitely bigger!
For now, I reused the gray Restoration Hardware quilt. It barely covers the bed so I will have to reorder a larger one.
To update the room for Christmas, I recently added a red and white Christmas throw.
I love the way the red pops against the gray quilt and the blue walls. The walls in the room are Benjamin Moore – Amsterdam, in case you were wondering.
Luckily I happened to have two of the navy striped pillow shams which I bought at Pottery Barn years ago.
A simple Christmas pillow with some red stands out against the navy and gray.
Yeah, I will miss the little bed.
Originally, I was worried that a queen bed would be too large for the room.
So we moved the bed a little closer to the window to leave more floor space.
Ironically, the room actually seems bigger now!
And he loves having a bigger bed!
Now that I have gotten over my sentimental crying, I love the new bed too!
Since he is getting older, I didn’t want to go overboard with Christmas decor in here. I think the simple additions of the blanket from Crate and Barrel a few seasons ago and throw pillow are just enough. Don’t you?
Do you get attached to any furniture?
