Tell-Love-and-Chocolate--Boys-bedroom-redoHave I mentioned my love for “before and afters”?  Well that love exists and it is strong ha!  I could look at them all. day. long.  So here is MY little before and after.  My boys’ room was in pretty sad shape it was in desperate need of a redo.  We moved into our place right before I had my littlest and so I wasn’t up to the task of decorating a whole bunch.  I did our living room and then lost momentum.  Fast forward two years and I STILL haven’t done too much.  But I felt it was finally time, especially now that my boys were getting a little older, it was time to give them a “bigger” boys room.

Now lets talk apartment living.  I have mention it before here, but it can be rough.  I can’t do too much about the nasty brown carpet or the fact that the walls are painted a depressing cream color, but I have come to realize there are ways to work around the ugly rental, to get the look you want.  It may not be 100% perfection but it can still be fun and feel like home.

With the boys room, I wanted it to be modern, colorful, functional, but still a fun room where they will want to play.  A got a few ADORABLE pieces from SWENYO to get the ball rolling.  They had the modern look that I was wanting, but still playful and not too adult.  Their skurniture bench is my very favorite.  I loved the look and what a perfect bedside table, am I right?

I am a little obsessed with how colorful and fun it all turned out.  I also loved that this wasn’t a HUGE undertaking and I just needed to rearrange a few things, add some new pieces and voila!

    I love what you did with this space! I’m definitely going to steal some of these ideas for when we do our son’s room in the next few months!


    The room looks so good! Hopefully it stays clean!
