ORC Week 3 - Comfy & Stylish Boys Bedroom Plan

Thank you all for the support as I try to tackle another boys bedroom! I say that because I know most of you are not joining the challenge but are really awesome to follow along on our attempt to finish this room in 6 weeks (5 weeks in my case).


Gosh, really, the hardest part of doing this, is in fact, the thought that my 'baby boy' has grown up and needs a space that can grow with him!

And so today, I share with you THE PLAN....

From this...

To THIS - Bed Wall
As you can see the huge statement piece in this space is the gorgeous wallpaper! It's by Shumacher called ZIMBA in Silver and I have been in love with it for years!


It comes in different colors but I think for our purpose, the Silver will work best (in terms of the growing up with him part, I think ;-)).

I only ordered 1 double roll and will see if I have enough for some other walls in the room. But I will definitely be placing it behind the bed.

Now for the wall opposite the bed....

From This....

To this?????
Ok,I put in a lot of question marks on this wall plan. Simply because I am leaning towards a desk here. The only problem is that this wall is between the door and another Indoor/Interior Window!!!!!

Yes, I have 2 Interior window in my house and I actually plan on doing the same thing to this window as I did in Sophia's Nursery...

Just to Refresh your memory
I like that I can just add a small piece of the wall paper to a roller shade and then place some clear shelving, and Viola - a cute book display! You can read more about it HERE, which btw, I also did for the ORC.

I do think he will need a desk, but with the big windows and not a lot of walls in the room, I think this wall would be the only spot for it. So I am thinking of putting up something like this...

Wall Desk from AMAZON
I think it can work with our limited wall and floor space. and I think will look nice enough too. The other thing is, my son is not letting go of some of these...

which is almost 3 ft. tall btw

... and some of this gang too
Yup, his favorite toys of course has to stay in the room and not in his closet. And of course, since this is HIS SPACE, I do have to trump style for what he loves and enjoys right? Coz isn't that what makes a bedroom "perfect" in the first place?!

By the window, I want to put a good reading chair. And in "Dream Land" I can and will put this...

I say it's for "dream land" because this chair costs " $6,894!!!
I have looked at more affordable options, but I really want something similar without breaking the bank! Still on a hunt, let me know if you find something similar!

I'm getting some help pulling this space together. Last week, I had a contractor survey the space and I'm still waiting on their quote and the other things I ordered for this space like the wall paper.

Now, let's check on what the others are up to since technically, we're supposed to be halfway there already!

Have A Great Weekend!
