The Before...





My little man was ready for a change, a BIG boys room! He no longer liked his bed; okay lets gets real - a converted crib, and preferred sleeping on the floor with all of his stuffed animals. 



The After....

Welcome to Tyler's industrial-mod/space themed room!









To start the design process, we decided on an industrial-mod-space theme with a color palette that will grow with him. I asked Tyler what colors he wanted for his new room. He said, "I want gray,white,yellow,blue and green." 


Direct, right? 


The next day, I brought home Benjamin Moore paint chips from my office along with some images from Pinterest,as seen above. I discussed with Tyler how to incorporate his colors: all the walls and furniture could be different shades of gray, his comforter could be blue and his doors could get a POP of citron green.He flashed me a BIG smile with a rock-star dance! I guess he was excited and loved the color scheme for his room! YAY! 


Here are the final color selections:

BENJAMIN MOORE STONINGTON GRAY HC-170 
FOR THE WALLS
BENJAMIN MOORE YELLOW HIBISCUS 357 
FOR THE DOORS

The key to the design was uniting the industrial -space theme & all the colors (citron green, gray, charcoal gray, blue and white) by creating something personal. We decided on a painting by Tyler: 


To start, we painted the background of the canvas the same citron green seen on his doors and accented in the rug. With acrylic paints, Tyler happily painted space angry birds inside a rocket-ship blasting off to space!


      

 






VOILA...








See how the background of the painting echoes his closet door! 


Tyler loves his new bed and metal cubbie system. It has a dual function. It acts as a headboard for his industrial platform bed and stores many of his toys inside vintage canvas storage bags. LOVE them!

WEST ELM SWIRL RUG





The Swirl rug adds texture and visual interest to his play area and unites all the colors of his room! 


Big bonus is that it also becomes a speedway for all of his many cars!! 

Tyler LOVES his BIG boy room!!!
