So the question is how to turn this serene, feminine space
into something more boyish. I found this inspiration image (from Schoolhouse Electric):
Which of course I promptly purchased and draped over the ends of their beds. Even that simple update makes the room so much more masculine. I will also be buying an antique stained wood dresser to place between the beds for extra storage, making headboards out of some mouse-brown velvet I already have on hand and looking for some vintage style lighting to round out the design. The lovely wallpapered dresser I made last year will find a new home or be sold (contact me if you are interested!). I promise to keep you updated on the progress!
