Just before the holidays last year I showed you my thirteen year old son’s bedroom inspiration, then his awesome new corduroy wingback bed. Today I’ll show you how the rest of the space is coming along! As you might remember, it is a pretty small room. But we were determined to have a full bed, a desk and a dresser.
One of my favorite parts of this room is the subway art by Red Letter Words. It’s a good reminder of what matters.
We found this dresser years ago at a second hand store and it adds the perfect antique touch to Luke’s room. We updated it a bit recently with some paint on the drawers and new hardware, but mostly it has been left as is over the years.
To fulfill Luke’s wish for a desk, we found this industrial work table and counter stool at World Market last year (direct link below in the sources).
You can find the post about the bed here. We are still really happy with it!
I love that he has his own gallery wall and can update or change pictures or art whenever he wants. He drew the owl in school years ago! This whole wall and the shelf holds some of his special memories and treasures.
We found the birch branch while out on a walk last Fall. Since we removed the closet doors to accommodate the desk we decided to hang curtain panels to soften the opening. The branch is hung from curtain tie back holders and secured with jute twine. At some point we will redo the interior of his closest, but for now he’s just fine with it.
I’ve had the elephant lamp forever.
The knobs on the dresser are original except for the top ones which were lost. We loved these compass knobs from Anthropologie and they added a perfect nod to adventure which should be a part of every boy’s life!
Our house is casual and pet friendly! Lily loves to hang out on beds so she can see out the window! She doesn’t sleep in here though, she sleeps near me :-).
Jack (our Goldendoodle, on the floor) sleeps in this room with Luke every night.
Every boy needs a dog, right?
