It was pretty important to us to get the kids' rooms done first, mostly because we wanted them to have a place to call their own. But, I must admit, I was also really psyched to give Henry a little boy room! The family who lived here before us had two girls, and we thought it was a good time to inject some boyishness into the place!
Just as with Nina's room, we stripped the wallpaper and replaced the pink carpets.
Henry's room got a board and batten wall treatment too, and a fresh coat of paint. This color is called Sepia Tan by Benjamin Moore.
We removed the old vertical blinds, which lightened up the room considerably. Henry's buffalo check curtains from Pottery Barn Kids are so cute in here!
I love Henry's bedding. It's a quilt from Pottery Barn Kids with a camel colored duvet from Woolrich. The "H" pillow, red ticking stripe pillow and brown corduroy pillow are all made by me, when I was sitting in California, trying to keep busy until we could make our move back to the Midwest!
I always try to use an area rug in rooms that have wall-to-wall carpet. It just seems to cozy it up and define the space a little bit. I picked up Henry's rug at Tuesday Morning and the colors are perfect in here!
He still has plenty of room for his toys and books and other little boy goodies!
I love how warm and welcoming the room feels. When I go in to check on Henry at night, half the time I want to crawl into bed with him and take a nap. (Plus, he still has that sweet little three-year-old boy smell that I can only get when he's asleep and actually holding still. I'm going to soak it in as long as I can!)
I hope he loves his room as much as I do!
