Sporty, playful and stylishly undone, Jude’s bedroom corrals all the elements of kid-cozy living with a preppy outlook on decorating that will take this funny little man beyond boyhood.
The Undecorated Room
When decorating a space for a young boy, there’s a fine line between 'styling' and 'decorating' a room. Jude didn't want his bedroom to look decorated. He wanted a room to call his own – fun and unfussy, so I set out to achieve a look for my son’s bedroom that was playful and cozy, yet quietly sophisticated so that he could grow into his bedroom instead of outgrow it.
Cool and Collected
Above all, I wanted my son to have a space where he felt comfortable to express himself and just be a boy. Jude – like most kids, can’t live without his little trinkets, toys and collectables. His bullseye and sling-shot from camp target practice and his many books on freaky facts and weird science are keen reminders of the wonderful character children bring wherever they go. I believe it's possible to marry great style with childhood collectables in a way you can both live with!
