Teenage Boy Bedroom

My son is going to be in 6th grade next year, and I wanted to redo his bedroom now that he is growing up.

I don't want to admit how much time I have spent over the past few months looking for ideas. I have looked at magazines, been to fabric stores, looked in just about every store, website and catalog imaginable. I visited Ralph Lauren about 6 times because I fell in love with their navy suede pillows, but just could not find anything to inspire me.

I was sure that I wanted something custom made. There was no way I was going to buy a bed in a bag.

Cut to last week when J and I ran into Target to stock up on sunscreen. As we wondered around he spotted a soft gray blanket that he knew Milly would love and asked if we could get it.

Further down the aisle we found a charcoal pleated comforter set.

We didn't like any of the decorative shams so went to look at the cushions and found some gorgeous gray/beige cushions.

Now his bed looks like this -

And he was right, Milly does love the blanket!

Now I just have to find the perfect pale gray paint for his walls and new fabric for his curtains and his room will be done.


  1. Very handsome! Target is amazing for so many things..was there this morning.

  2. Dogs.... don't cha just love them????

  3. That looks wonderful! Have a lovely day, Kellie xx
