house tour: boys bedroom

For months, I've been meaning to post pictures of the boys' bedroom in our current house. For some reason, it's taken me forever to get around to it! Probably because there are still some things that need to be done that make it feel very unfinished (new windows, new doors, new baseboards / trim, etc.) but those are big ticket items so I can't keep procrastinating because it doesn't look perfect. And honestly, I just keep adding random things in here so it feels a little eclectic, but hey - it's a kids room! I got an old globe from a thrift shop and painted it with chalkboard paint and drew some faux calligraphy on it. Perfectly imperfect, right? :)
I painted the room in Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue. It's such a beautiful color and I wish I had painted more rooms in it! It makes me happy every time I go in their room. It's not a huge space but just fine for a 6 and 4 year old. They each have a dresser on opposite sides of the room (matching antique Drexel Heritage that we got for a great deal in Mesa). They're such great quality and the hardware is so pretty. We upgraded all our old IKEA furniture to great quality antiques and I couldn't be happier. IKEA is great for some things but we haven't had great luck with moving our IKEA furniture. 
Their bedding is a hodge podge of Serena + Lily, Pottery Barn and handmade quilts from Aunt Sarah. "Tweety" and "Little Howler" are their BlaBla lovies.
We use the Bright Lab string of lights for their nightlight and it provides a really soft, cozy ambiance. Plus the "choose your own" colors are really fun!
The anchor bookends are from Target and that funny gnome money bank is from Anthropologie. We got the Scandinavian carousel that plays "Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen" on our trip to Denmark. I love it. It's one of my favorite things we got on our Europe adventure.
The Wayne Pate seagull print is one of my favorite things about their room. It just makes me smile every time I see it.
So, there you have it. William and Fritz's room... as it is July 2016!


  1. That's so cute! I love the globe especially.

  2. Very sweet! The globe is my favorite too, because your calligraphy is perfect!
