Local Blogger, Vanessa Johnson shares her process of transforming her son’s room.

I wanted to design a space for my son that would allow his curiosity and his imagination to grow.  I didn’t want bulky furniture taking up most of the room, so I choose this fun open bed frame to begin my inspiration. 

The main elements were the black and white, natural wood elements, and an outdoorsy adventurous theme. I wanted to add color and worked with the orange accent pieces we already owned.

The wood planked wallpaper adds so much texture — it’s so realistic looking. I love mixing patterns, and the rug is such a dynamic piece in here and makes a huge impact.

The bed frame really steals the show and is the focal point of his room. We gravitate here with all the kids to read before bed. It just feels so cozy, and it’s easy to pile in with the bed being on the floor. 

This project was a fun one.  I didn’t start from scratch but used many things we already owned. I always suggest to shop your house first and see what you can use before buying new. I even pull things from other rooms and repurpose them to give them new life.
