"Client Project Reveal: Teen Boy's Room"

I'm finally ready to reveal this fun teen boy's room project!  It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to pull this bedroom/bath together for a low-key, super cool,  basketball-loving teen that has a propensity for blue.

I'll be the first to admit that this one required quite a bit of restraint on my part.  Fact is, I LOVE COLOR.  So a pretty neutral space with varying shades and tints of blue was a bit of a stretch for me. Thankfully, it all worked out in the end and the result is pretty awesome.  Let's take a look...  

You may recall me saying in the introductory post for this project that the space began with a plaid shirt and a pair of blue suede oxfords.  Turns out, they were the perfect jumping off point for a modern masculine plan. 

One of my favorite pieces in the plan was this channel-tufted winged headboard Mark and I designed.

There's nothing like when you put two creative minds together and thankfully Mark can understand my terrible drawings.

The client originally requested a small sofa, but the space just wouldn't accommodate it.  Thankfully, I was able to sell him on a leather recliner.   This Bernhardt number did not disappoint.  I secretly wanted to keep it for myself.

While the color scheme was essentially blue, warm browns help to cozy things up a bit. 


I've been dying to use Mitchell-Black in a project and this was the perfect one to make that happen.  Mitchell Black is known for a pop-art which marries vintage art with modern framing. They now even have an exclusive line available on Target.com.

Every studious teen needs a desk area nearby, and his existing one did the trick. It simply needed a more age-appropriate chair and few finishing touches. The framed Etsy numbers are a nod to his love for Lebron James and basketball without being too themed. 

When I arrived there were small piles on the floor, so I knew some sort of shelving would be an important addition.  This budget-friendly industrial styled bookshelf  was surprisingly just what we needed. 

Lastly, we needed to address the attached bath.  It was pretty much a blank slate. I tried my very best here, but I could no longer resist the pull toward color and opted for a warm ocher shower curtain.

The abstract art pulls ties in perfectly with the yellow curtain and the ombre runner anchors the entire space with a touch of plushness underfoot.

A few final details...

Pretty cool, right?  I'm really excited about how this one came together. Best of all, I think he likes it as much as I do.
