Home Tour: A Teen Boy's Room

July 25, 2014



Today I am sharing my son's room, which only looked like this for a day. He hates throw pillows - tells me it looks too designerish. So they only lasted for the photos! And being tidy is not his forte.

 I am excited about redoing his space in the new house. The silver leaf dresser will be going with my oldest daughter to her new place in the fall, which means I need to either get another one, or buy something completely different.  I might re-paint some of the furniture, like his dresser.  His dresser is a teak dresser (I am sure a few of you are gasping that I painted over teak), it was damaged and not the greatest quality. It was one of my first blog posts, but I won't show you that as I am appalled at how bad the photos were. You will have to go digging for that!

    1. Thanks! Yes, he just doesn't appreciate throw pillows. Actually he takes the term "throw" pillows to heart!

  2. It looks awesome! And I love that you were honest about the throw pillows haha. I always tell friends who don't have blogs that they should photograph their homes after a good clean - it's always nice to remember what your house can look like instead of what it usually looks like when you're busy living!

  3. Great photography B! I have to agree with your son, pillows can be a bit designerish for guys ..... my hubby complains they get in the way all of the time. When they're away, go crazy and put them all over everything ........ and again use them in his new room :-)))))

  5. It's a great room - what did you have to bribe him with to get it so clean? Good luck with the move!

  8. Lucky boy! His room is great. Guys just don't understand throw pillows. I particularly like the vintage tractor on the tabletop.
