As a mother it is never easy to make the transition from baby to child to pre-teen and oh dear I say it adult! One of my latest styling jobs had my most fun yet.

The client:

A mother of two growing boys.

She wanted to surprise her boys with their new room.

Key words:

  • A place for them to study
  • organization
  • they need to grow into the room
  • functional but must look appealing
  • A place to keep all her boys books (they have loads)
  • industrial look with elements of vintage

The room had been outdated with old baby furniture that had long since past it’s expiry date.

A custom industrial wall shelve and double desk combo was installed into the room, new head bards, linen, curtains and for a pop of colour some stunning duck egg blue industrial style chairs and bed throws.

I find the industrial look can be quiet cold, so adding elements of vintage pieces with the old books and suit cases along side vintage inspired maps brings the look together.

Don’t you just love the glass cloche/spider …so cool! Now the boys have room that can inspire and grow with them…
