Over the last couple months I’ve been piecing my boys’ bedroom together, bit by bit.
It all began with my 11 year old’s fascination with Space Wallpaper. It’s all he talked about when I asked what he’d like for his bedroom makeover.
Then, he found and fell for a retro white and red shag rug. “This is the one I NEED to have Mom! I love it!” When your 11 year old son pries his thoughts from Fortnite to browse rug selections and falls for one hard, you just say ‘Yes, we will make this all work together for you buddy!’, am I right Momma’s?
What was birthed from these selections is the happiest Retro Atomic Space Bedroom that I never knew needed to exist. I’m so glad I worked WITH my boys to come up with a bedroom, one that they are excited to spend time (play video games) in.
We began the room makeover with THIS fabulous mural from MuralsWallpaper, and then wrapped the rest of the walls in inky black paint to create the feeling of actually being out in space.
The rug my boys found and fell in love with is from WellWoven rugs, you can find it HERE!
I love working with small shops, so we added some pieces from some of my favorite artist.
I love the message DO RIGHT AND FEAR NO MAN, it couldn’t be more perfect for my boys. It is from OXFORD PENNANT.
JUST CHILL (another perfect message for my boys) is made by my dear friend Christina from Southern Mesa Trading Co.
The mid-century style wall hooks are from Eden and Co, and you can purchase from Amazon HERE.
I found the perfect midcentury light from Home Depot for a fab price. It’s hard to capture in photos, but I’ll give you the link, cause it it’s a NEED TO KNOW!.
With the room nearly finished, I decided it needed just a little extra oomph! While the boys were at school I traced out some retro styled stripes on their walls, and painted them in bright yellow, orange, and red! Suddenly the whole room was broughtt to life (and I not too subtly tied in the wall mural and rug together).
I’m not quite finished with their room. Eventually the carpet needs to be replaced, the baseboards need another coat of paint, and yup, the curtains in here are the embarrassing flood length. They’ll be replaced as soon as our budget allows.
For now though, this room has turned into the most daring and fun room of the house!
I hope you guys love it as much as we do!
