That room in the picture above is not in my house, but I do love it. I am showing it to you because I’ve got to do something about my son’s room. I’ve been looking for some inspiration. Do you know how hard it is to find rooms that work for twenty-something year olds?? There are
hundreds thousands of precious girl’s rooms. There are even a large number of little boy’s rooms like this clever one below.
But finding something that works for older guys is not easy. Most of what I find is nautical.
I have found a few that do seem suited to them, and they even have a southern feel. See what you think.
Sarah Richardson has done a room for the guys that is not too juvenile.hgtv.ca
Here is one whose look is really sophisticated.lizwilliamsinteriors.com
I really like this next room. It has the “feel” I want for the space, but I doubt my son would approve.
And I love love love the drapes in this one.houseandhome.com
Our sons’ room is not bad, by any means. It just doesn’t work for our twenty-something year old until he knows whether or not he is going to law school or grad school or what. He has had a twin sized bed for way too long, and he has a queen size mattress set in storage. So the twin sized bed is about to be booted out. That means that some things have to change…at a minimum, the furniture arrangement and the linens. This room from The Lettered Cottage has the most similar layout of our space,and it has the feel that I think is fitting of both our son and the house.
So next time, I will hopefully show you the space as it is right now – the before. But don’t expect the after for a month or two. We interrupt our regularly scheduled life to bring you Christmas in the next few weeks, and I just found out we are hosting our school’s faculty Christmas party here again. (Yes Mom, you read that right.) That’s means a little extra work needs to go into the Christmas decorating, and it means that bedroom will have to stay like it is for just a little while longer until I can wrap my head around what to do in there.
