This Modern Boys Bedroom is a timeless and inspiring shared bedroom.
In the past few years I’ve shared bits and pieces of the boys bedroom, but last week added this rug and it FINALLY feels complete! It’s the Marcelo Hand Tufted Rug from Wayfair and I just LOVE the way it ties everything together.
Originally I was afraid that with so many patterns it would be too much, but I’m liking how all the patterns work together! Maybe you noticed that it’s actually the same rug that I have in my living room, I just have that one in the darker version!
This room has been collected over time, and sadly many of the items are either vintage or discontinued. I did try and gather some similar sources.. The blue dressers were $5 each at an auction and I painted them Annie Sloan Aubusson Blue. The mirror over the dresser came from the Habitat restore for $20!
The chevron quilts were made by me over five years ago! It was the most complicated sewing project I’ve ever done, but I’m thankful that the boys really treasure them. The tutorial for the floating shelves is here. These shelves have turned this awkward space into great storage.
I hand painted the night sky mural and built the little industrial night stand. I used glow in the dark paint on the wall and the boys still get excited about it every night when we turn off the lights!
I made two rolling lego trays for under the boys’ beds. These trays get rolled in and out multiple times a day.
The boys room has been an evolution and it’s slowly been growing up with them. Here’s a peek at their room from a few houses back!
If you’re decorating kid’s rooms my advice is to take it slow and shop around for a more “collected” look. By taking your time your room won’t feel straight out of a furniture showroom but instead have a more natural feel. Thanks for stopping by and reading!
