Design Reveal! Riley’s Playroom

The final room in our three part series reveals!

5 year old Riley and his Dad wanted a room they could call their own. Something that they could hang out in, be together, and make memories. Dad really wanted a space to watch movies and relax.  Riley just wanted a cool room to play in with his buddies. They both share a love of all things Star Wars, so we sprinkled a little of that throughout the room.

 The room was a blank slate, the only thing we needed to work with was the white wainscoting in the room. With the white details all around, we knew we could go bold on the wall. The Navy went up and we were in love! The PLAY letters take the stage in the room. They are one of our favorite items to add at the moment..

We found these on Etsy from sawandsteel.

A quick game of Hungry Hungry Hippos is always a good idea! The sofa is so comfy and looks good too! How about that button detail?

Riley’s playroom had double closets opposite the white IKEA shelf, so a little surprise we dreamed up for Riley was a little Playhouse loft  Art Nook. We went back and forth on what he would like best, and ended up deciding on a custom Art Desk where Riley could sit and draw for hours. (Additional bonus…it could grow with him!) We added an additional stool so dad or his friends could join in as well. He is able to display his artwork on wires that we put on eye hooks across the back wall.

We wanted the back wall to have a WOW factor. We decided on a reclaimed wood wall that was found from an old fence in Kentucky! We are so lucky to have a source to pick these babies up…. (psst. Porter Barnwood) Dad, loves a good story, so the wall having a history makes the wall one of his favorites in the room.

Since we have installed these rooms, Mom and Dad have told us that Riley is always at his Art Nook. It’s his favorite place to unwind and create new masterpieces to display. We are thrilled that he loves it so much!

We are looking forward to many more projects with this fun family!

Design Reveal! Riley’s Super Hero Bath

So…here is part two of our reveal….Ta DAH!

 If you haven’t seen Riley’s Bedroom, you are missing out!
Find it here.

Riley’s bathroom connects to his bedroom, so we wanted the bath to coordinate. We loved the green stripe in his bedroom, so we painted the existing vanity to match. For the back splash we used some adorable blue penny’s that were topped off by a stainless steel liner. The show stopper is the gear mirror above the vanity. It sticks out from the wall a little so we had to bring the faucet forward a little bit, but it was worth it! How about those sconces??? (psst…find them here!)

We styled the counter top with some fun accessories found through Target as well. The Metal orbs give some detail, but don’t take up much weight spatially. We fell in love with the walnut soap dispenser. It gives the counter a little bit of warmth. And it’s always appropriate to add in a succulent. We could have a post on our love Obsession…later.

Whenever we place art and details that make the room, we always walk through the room and see where our eye hits first. We decided to put the towel bar front and center with a fun Superman Print we found at our local Target right across from the entry. It’s perfect! (psst….wall color is Dunn Edwards Foggy Day)

Design Reveal! Riley’s Room Saves The Day…

When the parents of a charming 5 year old little boy approached us to design his bedroom,  we jumped right in! We love designing rooms for littles! Kids rooms make our hearts sing… not only are they more colorful and fun, you can take a few more risks that end up being our littlest client’s favorite thing about the entire space.

The parents wish list for Riley’s room was: a big boy bed, a desk, a quiet reading area, and lots of color. Oh! And we had to feature his favorite super hero, Captain America.  His parents also wanted a little nod to New York as well, one of their favorite places to visit.

Usually, we try to stay away from themes,but thought a nod to comic books would be awesome!

 Our focal point was the comic inspired mural! How cool is this? We love how it looks like it was pulled out of the page of a comic and that Spidey himself might make an appearance swinging between the buildings. When choosing a strong graphic print, we like to have the rest of the room be a little more subtle in pattern, but filled with LOTS of color! We painted a thick green stripe around the room to give the other walls interest.

How perfect are these super cool sheets from Pottery Barn Kids?? (psst! They are on SALE right now!). We mixed in some solid colorful pillows in orange and green from IKEA for added punch. Captain America is front and center with the star shield.

We found these darling nightstands from Land of Nod, (we found his bed there too…) and accessorized them with one of our favorite lamps of the moment. We love that these lamps give a cool retro vibe, but that they aren’t super theme-y. Definitely something Riley can have from grade school to College! We found the batman alarm clock out our local Home Goods Store and accessorized the rest of his nightstand with things he already had.

Across from the bed, we set up a little reading nook. The mid-century inspired chair invites little Riley to sit with a good book and put his feet up. Behind the chair, we personalized the area with a print of batman (that doesn’t scream kid) and some of the family’s favorite places in New York. The commercial license plate give us the pop of color we need on that side of the room.
