Jeff's Room is Finished!

Pin It!

As promised from the last post, here are the photos of Jeff's room.

First, you should know that over time his room became a . . . ahem . . . "gathering place" for objects that we didn't know what to do with.

So-o-o it hurts, but I'm going to show you the before . . .


And here's the after . . .



It takes up more room, but I love to "corner" a twin bed. It looks so much more creative.


Finding something stylish for a young man's bedroom is tricky!
I just love these linens & window treatments from Ikea.
(As you can see the bed is a hit with our dog, "Sam" too!)


The "bus roll" or subway art in the background is filled with the names of places Jeff has lived & visited while he was away.

I also made this "computer keyboard" mirror with a few special hidden messages just for Jeff.



This cozy chair & the throw have special significance. They are from the home of Jeff's grandma who passed away while he was serving his mission. We saved it specifically for him.

I'm hoping it will remind him of all the happy memories with her in her home.


I enlarged some of the photos Jeff took in England & framed them. They hang above his desk to as another happy souvenir of
his travels.


Since he will be back to college again soon, I tried to include grown-up things he can take with him if he wants. Hope he likes it!

  1. Michelle,
    I am stopping by and following as well. I love this blog post because I am trying to find creative, stylish, yet "boyish" room ideas for my 15 yr old step son.
