teen bedroom progress...

Detail Boy's bedroom has moved to the top of my priority list.
I want it finished before school starts on August 20th, and we're heading out of town
August 10th....so, my self imposed deadline to have it complete is August 3rd!
That gives me 2 weeks...yikes!

I love the moody vibe this deep charcoal color creates.
 His room won't be as formal and sophisticated, dang!
Even the unmade bed looks good in this fabulous space.

We started with this...
(isn't Mikko going to coordinate nicely?)




 and then narrowed it down to Mined Coal by Behr on the right.




Here's a peek at the colors we're using and the bedding he chose,
a reversible duvet we found at HomeGoods, after searching several other options.
 Well fold it at the end of the bed, revealing only half as much of that lovely pattern!

Gotta run, I'm painting actually prepping today!

Great colour choice, and so convenient that it matches the cat!

I love that deep color for the walls! It's going to look fantastic with the bedding. Have fun painting - isn't a deadline the ONLY way to get a project finished? Hmmm….I need to impose some deadlines on myself. :)

Dana Frieling said...

Super fun! Are you painting the ceiling too (per your inspiration pic)?

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

Ohhh I love how moody that room is- so not something I would usually like, but I am actually loving it! Good luck prepping today- my least favorite part, sometimes I'm a little too impatient to do the right prep job ;)

Gretchen said...

I love your ideas for his room and he can really grow into it, as he gets to college.

:) It's gonna be so cute and fun! But don't tell him I called it that - might not be the adjectives he would want to hear!!

Lori said...

I love the color and I think the bedding is cool. Oh, and Mikko is priceless!

Leslie said...

GORGEOUS, rich colors Pam!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

oooh totally LOVING IT!

Peggy said...

Okay I have to admit it I ended up being totally distracted by Mikko! We had cats for years and then I developed a severe allergy to them. So now I live vicariously through other cat lovers... and Mikko is simply stunning!

The room... can hardly wait to see the finished room because I'm loving what I see already!!

Diana @ Your Day Simplified said...

Only you would have a cat that coordinates with the room! Love the charcoal gray!

Holly said...

Nice! I was itching for me details/previews on his room. Great choices - I see some sophistication in there - it's going to be really cool. And love the paint color.

I love the deep color on the wall direction. It will be such a wonderful backdrop for the bedding and anything else (like artwork) that might be added to the room. Exciting!
