It’s impossible to photograph Everett’s little room in one shot, so here it is in bits and pieces.
Can we take a moment for the wall, please? (tutorial later. when i’m feeling less traumatized. scratch that. when josh is feeling less traumatized. ditto for the paneled ceilings. we haven’t even discussed those yet!)
Everett’s room is nearly done, despite a few finishing touches and things that we’ll do further down the road, like painting the inside of his closet and creating better storage in there and upgrading the blinds. I’ve been playing with the idea of adding a cover to his duvet, maybe this one from Pottery Barn Kids, but I’m still on the fence. I don’t want his room to feel too heavy or over-designed. The curtains are even pushing it, in my opinion.
See that little Seahawks helmet lamp? It was Josh’s when he was a kid. Talk about being a lifelong fan. I’m on the hunt for a new shade…
We didn’t have a place for that Seattle map in the rest of the house, so we hung it in here. I think it gives a nice pop of color to his room. I want to cover that wall with all Seattle/Washington/Northwest-inspired art work for a little gallery. I’ve been pinning some ideas here.
The best part about his room is that we pretty much already had everything we needed. I did add that tiered basket for his trucks. It’s the Ladder Storage Basket from Urban Outfitters (currently on sale for $59) and it gives a nice industrial touch to his room, while also giving us an easy spot to toss the random trucks and cars we find around the house.
A closeup of the wall. The insanely perfect wall. I kind of want to hug it. The mug and wooden letter are both from Anthropologie. They still carry the Monogram Mug ($8), in case you can’t live without one of your own.
