Redesign A Boy's Room

This little boy's room needed an update.



BEFORE
It had been this way since he was about 2 --- and he was now 6.


AFTER
We pulled the bed out from the window and replaced it with a desk that was down in the basement. It was a perfect fit!

Notice how the rug really adds to the room.



BEFORE
The dresser had a variety of items and the picture was hung rather high.



AFTER
We decided to create more of a sports theme
using what he already had.

The magnet board works great hung above the dresser so he can put photos from his soccer games. Notice how it is hung closer to the dresser and makes more of a grouping.


Also we are tying in the color red --- rug, magnet board, bedding.



BEFORE



AFTER



The desk was a great fit in that corner --- and more suited to a school boy.



The colors of the books under the lamp and the cars makes for a fun element on the desk.
It pulls more of the red around the room as well.



BEFORE



AFTER
He was thrilled with the new room!

    What a great room. I love it and it looks so pretty too. It is rearranged to really take advantage of the great window are for a desk. You did such a fabulous job. Hugs, Marty

    Love the desk at the window, the sports theme, and the addition of red and blue. No wonder little Gage was thrilled with his "new" room!
