Spring is here, and it is most welcome right now. There’s something so promising about a seasonal transition. I love all the changes – the temperature, wind, smells, wardrobe, recipes and mood. But for some reason, changing up the decor in my home has never been a priority. This year was different, because as much as I loved my bedroom decor I was definitely ready for a change.
When Peter and I were first married and living in our new home, I remember wanting to go all out in Christmas decorating. We started with virtually nothing except his little bachelor Christmas tree (which is now in our son Alex’s room). Every Christmas season we bought more ornaments and decorations.

I’ve been waiting a long time to update my 11 year old boy’s bedroom. It feels like yesterday that I was updating it from his baby room to a “big boy” room. Where did the time go? Maybe I was in denial that he was getting so much older, or maybe I just got too preoccupied with other things. But, when your son complains about how outdated his room looks you KNOW you’ve waited too long! Time for the teenager boy bedroom makeover!
I like to think I had been waiting on some form of inspiration to get the creative juices flowing. It came to me in the form of a couple of black striped linen pillows that I snatched up on sale about a month ago. I designed his room around them, and I’m happy with the result. More importantly, so is my son! Here is the moodboard:

Scandinavian farmhouse “feel”
pop of black
Things are just starting to arrive in the mail, so hopefully I’ll be able to put it all together soon. Stay tuned!
