Jack's Room Reveal

Today's room reveal is an example of a local (Detroit), on-site design project.  Similar results can be achieved through my online design service for non-local clients (there are a few online design spots left in February, please click here for more information). 


This room belongs to the most handsome three year old boy, Jack…






Jack's family just moved into a brand new home and he was very excited about his new room.  His parents asked me to design a space that could grow with Jack through the years.

When I began his custom room design, I didn't have to look far for inspiration.  Just outside Jacks window is a view of the local ski hill.  Coincidentally, Jack happens to be one of the best skiers around.

While Jack's family was on a ski vacation in Tahoe, I put the finishing touches on his new space.



Here is a look at the room before...


(Before)





And here it is now...



(After)



I began the room design with a totally gnarly wall mural from Potterybarn Teen (click here).
What I love about this mural is the three dimensional quality of the image, the vibrant colors and the size.  For $99 we were able to give this builder beige room a huge personality. 






Next came new big boy furniture, handsome bedding, 







and personalized DIY wall letters.  


(For a tutorial on these DIY distressed letters including tips on hanging them, click here)


This wire shelf is not only a cool industrial element, but it provides storage for Jack's books and toys.  As Jack grows, the stuffed animals and Dr. Suess tales can be swapped for sports equipment and trophies.

Jacks room doesn't have a lot of floor space, but we were still able to create a reading corner under the window with a cozy bean bag and canvas totes filled with his favorite books.  









Jack never goes to bed without an entourage of action figures and fleet of matchbox cars.  I gave him a cool serving tray to keep them contained.  







Since this is a brand new room with a lot of brand new elements,  I used Jack's clothes and favorite toys as accessories to keep it feeling comfortable and familiar. 






Thank you, Jack for letting me decorate your new room.

  24. Can you give just a little hint about the source for the wire shelf basket??? I have googled and looked all over the internet and can't seem it. Can you at least tell me if it is a source only available to the trade or if it is available to the public?
