Melaine from My Sweet Savannah is an experienced, long time blogger that I love to follow and get inspired from. Her sons room is so timeless and full of the best ideas, I had to share it with all of you. I featured it on my section Kids Spaces for Everything Home Magazine. I drilled Melaine with questions on her 13 year old sons bedroom.
He had a western themed bedroom and it was time for a change. Melaine knew that she didn’t want to do a “theme” she wanted to do something that would take him through high school. His bed and dresser were the starting point and it just took off from there.
Her son picked out his bed, he went with a tufted leather headboard that they found on Craigslist. He didn’t want the room or the bed to be too babyish. Luckily Melaine loved the bed as much as he did, so it was a win win!
Melaine transitioned his bedroom with the rest of the home with the colors she selected. It is pretty neutral and the wall color compliments the other colors they have in their home.
There are a lot of vintage and unique items in his bedroom. My favorite is the basketball hoop, that she made from old pieces of wood.
These monogrammed pillows are her sons initials. I love this idea of personalizing a child’s bedroom.
She doesn’t like things to be too matchy matchy but she does love symmetry. For example, his night tables from World Market match as well as his Restoration Hardware sconces. They help to balance out the vintage eclectic items.
I love to ask where all of his extra “treasures” that kids collect get stored in their bedrooms. Melaine found a spot to put his books, that look neatly stored in old locker baskets, as well as footballs and other balls in neat containers.
A little glimpse into his bathroom and from wha t I can see it is full of style too. You can see Melaine’s beautiful blog HERE and more of her home. Make sure to read the great free magazine, Everything Home Magazine HERE.
