Did you wake up this morning and think, “You know, I’d love to see a boy bedroom makeover today. But not just any makeover, one that’s heavy on the Star Wars memorabilia?”
Well, that’s exactly what I have to show you today you creeper, how did you know?!
Vel’s son Aiden had outgrown the Dr. Seuss decor in his bedroom. She wanted to bring in a little more sophistication, but keep it fun, while displaying his collection of toys, yet making sure they were accessible, plus organizing his spaces, but leaving him room to express himself, and doing it all in a way that would grow with him. Whew! That’s a tall order if I ever heard one.
But she nailed it. At first glance the room definitely looks more grown up, but there’s much more to it. Vel thoughtfully considered every last detail in this room, right down to light saber storage.
All of her son’s favorite toys and books are proudly on display, but still easy to access and play with. As you can see, he’s a big Star Wars fan, but Vel also made a good point: children’s favorite things can change on a whim. Next month he may be big into Spiderman or Pokemon or whatever the kids are doing these days.
That’s why she made sure that nothing ‘Star Wars’ is a permanent part of the room. Everything can be switched out easily and the room maintains its design.
She’s a smart one! See more of Vel’s work and take a closer look at all the updates in this room on her blog Life & Home at 2102.
