Hi all! Today I'm excited to share a few updates to my son's room. He and I felt that the room had begun to feel too dark and we agreed to lighten the walls. He also wanted to move the bed back to the window wall so that you see it when entering the room. So back to window wall it went.
First things first - the wall color needed to change. We gave it a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams rock candy. It's a light gray with slightly cool undertones. We both agree that it has an incredibly peaceful feeling. I love this color! The bed works so much better in this position so I'm glad he suggested moving it. We also found a new desk from IKEA that gives him more room to work and the extra storage is a plus! The chair was also an IKEA score. It is surprisingly comfortable!
The real stunner though is the new art from Minted that my son chose. I wanted a statement piece for his room and this one is perfect. We went with a 40 x 30" framed in white. (#gobigorgohome) I can honestly say that I've been thoroughly pleased with every piece of art I've received from Minted and consider them one of my favorite sources for art - especially art that's already framed. Minted connects with the best independent artists offering endlessly fresh, truly unique art, stationery, and home decor you won't find anywhere else. So add them to your source list if you haven't already.
The art by the bed are two pieces I already had sitting around, both gifted and DIY. The sconces, bedding, and curtains all stayed the same, but look so much brighter now that the room is lighter.
