Here it is now
The color isn't coming across as bright and cheery as it is in real life. It is such a happy blue. My friend said it reminded her of a candy shop. I loved that! The blue is staying for sure and I love the accents of red. My Mom made that quilt for him so that will stay too.
I've been seeing all these rooms with maps in them and I've been falling in love with the look. I remembered an old or shall I say "vintage" atlas from when we were growing up and asked my Mom if we could use it. She said yes and look how the blue in the maps matches the wall. It is just a smidge deeper
There is a bit of green in there and you know how I love my green so these sheets would be fun.
and how about some pillows in this
We have a tan comforter that would work well in there. This light is staying but maybe getting a paint job? I'd love if it was a more rustic looking metal, a barn light look.
It is starting to come together in my mind but there is more figuring to do. In the meantime these boy's rooms are excellent inspiration.
