I am in the early stages of changing my 7 year old’s room – ah, better make that 7 1/2 year old’s room (he would correct me if he saw that!) from a baby blue baby-ish room to a cool big kid room. He still likes blue – just not the “baby” kind of blue.
Right now, he has the top color on this color sample.
(Bright and Early – Benjamin Moore)
The sample is sitting on top of his Thomas Desk
from Pottery Barn which will stay in the room.
It has the Rustic Honey finish which kind of has a orangish tint to it.
His new full size bed will have the same finish.
Here are some things that will stay in the room:
He still loves this poster of old trains.
I thought I might add a few vintage pieces of art to the room.
I am thinking of changing from baby blue to a grayish blue color.
He likes Blue Heather and Little Falls.
I think they will work with the wood.
What do you think?
The top right is the current color.
The left 3rd and 4th are what we are thinking.
(Actually they kind of all look the same on here…)
But like I said,
I am in the early stages
and I still haven’t decided on bedding.
He wants a lot of navy in the room.
As you may remember, I painted this chair…
The red curtains will change to something lighter.
I am thinking a little Ralph Lauren-ish.
Maybe go for a Rustic/Vintage/Americana Look?
So this room would look a little bit country.
My younger son has a nautical room.
So one would be country and the other calypso…
What a coincidence!
(And what do you you know – I didn’t even plan that!)
I could change my mind tomorrow…
But I am trying to start somewhere…
What do you think of the colors with the wood?
