The Boys’ Room Tour!

August 14, 2019

I had Tara Carter come and shoot some updated photos of the boys’ room…and shockingly got it lego free for a few brief hours! Over the last year I have kept my eye out for vintage pieces and organization solutions for my boys’ room to tie it all together. It’s one of my favorite things about finishing a space….finding the things that will make the room more personal to the people who will use it the most.

Today we are sharing an updated tour of this bedroom with never before seen views, and hopefully answering some of your source and layout quesitons!

I really wanted this room to grow with the boys over time since there ages vary from 4 to 10. When I was thinking through the design and functionality of the room I wanted it to be a place that would encourage them to spend time here – whether that be creatively, imagination play, reading in a cozy space, or even wrestling (which is why I kept it big and open for my very energetic and active sons).

The closet where all of their toys are stored is behind this wall! The clothing closet is on the left, and the door to the bathroom is right next to it.

You can catch the timelapse video of the accent wall side in this post. I love the color and character doing a darker wall brought to an otherwise all white room. We are curently working on the closet build outs for additional clothing and storage organization which we will share soon!

In case you missed the original reveal, these are the views we started with! An unfinished basement room that we finished off with drywall, and slowly built into a livable room. It’s been a work in progress for a few years now, so don’t be fooled by the result photos! We used beadboard panels on the walls which was an easy and inexpensive way to add some dimension and variation to the space.

It’s already proven over and over again, how the time we spent on this room has paid us back ten fold with the hours of contented occupancy it has provided;) (This is where we send them during the squirrely dinner hour!) Since it is in our daylight basement, I consider that a victory! Even the girls come and hang here. It’s been fun to see the sleepovers and memories made amongst these brothers, and hopefully that will continue over the years.

  • Such a lovely space you’ve created for them! And what a win with all that natural light for a basement!

  • Beautiful rooms!
    Do you happen to have the source for the pillows?

  • One of my favorite rooms ever. Just so bright and beautiful – I wish we had that amount of space so I could replicate for our boys!

  • I have always loved it and I love how these photos feel like you are panning around the whole space! Also, I don’t think I ever noticed how well the bathroom goes with the overall room. SO cute. I had a dream a couple of months ago that we visited you…dear God, let that happen! XO
