The first room in our house is finally complete! Yes, it took me eight months to finish installation of all the pieces, but I'm thrilled with the finished design. This is H.'s big boy room. It's preppy. It's vintage. It's farmhouse. It's classic with a slightly modern twist. Really, it's everything we love.
The last pieces to be installed were these spectacular drapes. The fabric is designed by Maggie Revel Mielczarek of Leland gal. Her fabric truly pulled my vision together and made the room sing. Please visit her site to see more of her beautiful patterns and creations! She is an amazing up and coming talent.
The room was already blue from the previous owner.
When we moved in, I knew it would only be his nursery for a few months, so I never really did anything except plop his furniture into the space. Underwhelming, I know!
First, I painted all the walls Nimbus Gray by Benjamin Moore.
Strangely enough, the very first piece I purchased for the room was this vintage drum shade from the Allegan County Antiques market. I had a local lighting store turn it into a pendant, and it's great!
Here's a slew of not-so-perfect pictures, but I hope to have the room
photographed by a pro some day soon.
H. is a big fan of his gallery wall. The barn, on the far left, is a photograph of a barn from my family on my dad's side. The two ship pictures and the mother/son painting are all from 29th Street Antiques. The green truck is another photograph, and I found it from Maleah Torney. The "H" is from JoAnn Fabrics, spray painted green.
The green dresser was my husband's dresser from his childhood. I painted it green and added the brass hardware. I like keeping the sentimental pieces while still making them our own.
Dang, I love that fabric! :-)
Everyone was skeptical of the brass beds--especially my husband. But they work great in the room and I won over all my skeptics. Plus, they were a steal on Amazon, just click here for the source.
This painting is also from the Allegan County Antiques Market. Again, a steal.
And a few details:
H. loves his room! I hope you do too.
