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.
