( Need I say more, )
It seems like just yesterday there was a mural of his favorite pony (Stormy). Barkcloth cowboy sheets, chambray bedding and distressed bunk beds with branded side rails. All too familiar and just a few years ago they were the fashion of the moment in a little wrangler room.
Enter middle school, a trip to Dallas and a stay at the nylohotel.com
One of the many hanging chairs at the Nylo hotel in Plano Texas.
So, one shaggy chocolate rug later, one set of bunkbeds being cut down into a hip modern single bed frame.
Some faux finishing later, a trip to my nearest Dallas Ikea and presto chango; you are on your way to a mod, fun teenage boys room.
Here are some peeks at the transformation in progress:
The far wall has been covered in the faux concrete finish. To the right is the adjoining wall with applied finish.
A curvy halogen ceiling lighting fixture was applied and used to highlight spots in the room.
An overall cream, chocolate and greis color scheme with Crimson and Burnt Orange accent colors.
In progress, the concrete wall behind the bedding. A lovely array of my all time fav RL floral comforter that is so old it is soft and comfy, but definately not modern. The bedding will stay, and the orange throw, soft and like a fluffy kitten. Of course a beginning to the laundry from his recent trip.
More of the large wall. More to come, I am sealing today and getting things ready for the clean up and put together of the bed and underneath it! A little more patching is required as the built in unit is disassembled and a sleek and open desk is built into it's place. More to come, this is what I have so far.
As promised, we had a bit (lot) of raindrops last week and one day I went to B & N to browse through the books. Here are a few of my favorite images:
Love this vignette, pavers, a little linen and a still life full of life.
Really like these open plaster shelves in this Parisian kitchen.
This one I love, stone rough cut, upholstered sofas, textural hydrangeas, and I love the oil painting in the background with the guilt frame.
This is another vignette over a fireplace. Obviously the ititial is A. The heads and body parts is great! I love the hand, santos and the carved spindly cross.
One more, I could not resist the horses head on this wall. I am seriously thinking of making one for my new wall in the media / family room, over the fireplace. I will keep you posted on that one. The armoire and the cotton accessories are wonderful and softly draw you in.
Enough for an afternoon, the images are from;
