Despite having a bedroom of his own, my youngest has set up permanent camp in his older brother’s room. Older brother is so easy going it doesn’t worry him where his younger brother sleeps … but I think it’s time they each had their own space.
Sooo, I’m going to extract my youngest from my teenager’s room and create a space for my teenager where he can study in peace and enjoy some time on his own, without the ‘little flea’ and associated (constant) bug talk!
I am still drawn to these Restoration Hardware boy’s rooms, that I featured a while back. I love the whole industrial aesthetic for older boys. I love the neutral tones of these rooms and the use of varied textures, iron, rough weaves, leather. I am searching for nice pieces that will fit the criteria that I have been given: ” a bed, a desk, a bedside and some shelves for my stuff …. oh, and a world map” (aren’t boys basic? and so easy to please!). I have a leather trunk at the back of the shed and a couple of gorgeous industrial tripod lamps that will go perfectly. Just need a desk and some shelves and some manchester that isn’t in the red, white and blue colourway that is so easy to use for younger boys.
Once I’ve got my act together I will do some before and after shots and share them here.
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some groovy industrial inspiration from my visit to Restoration Hardware in New York and East Hampton last year.
