Anyways....welcome to my boys room. I got my huge paint by number painting framed up. And the ball just started rolling from there. When I first had William I was not a fan of primary colors as far as kid stuff. Seemed like every kid toy, piece of furniture had primary colors. I get it, they need to learn their colors but all of them together drove me nuts as far as design.... So I find it funny that in the boys big boy room I have a lot of primary colors going on, but I think I muted them enough with neutrals to live with them.
I really don't have a plan when it comes to kids room. I don't want people or my boys to walk in and see a pottery barn catalog but feel some soul. And I think that's why it takes a long time to get a room DONE....I'm not satisfied with surface, I want some meaning.
I love bringing the outside in with plants and landscape paintings. A lot of my paintings around my house are landscapes and are nice little windows on warmth during the winter months.... For the boys room I wanted something really bold and I love the retro paint by number style. So I looked up a bunch of paint by number paintings and literally just started copying one from looking at my computer to painting on the canvas. I hand a big piece of canvas cloth that I hung on the wall. I wasn't too exact in coping it and put a lot of my own style and changed some of the colors..........It was like I just systematically put blobs of paint in the right place to create a scenery.
In picking the frame color I could have gone with a safe stained wood color. But as the room was coming together red seemed like the right accent color.....
I love how this painting as a good balance of brightness and neutrals....I looked at this painting a lot as I accessorized this space....
I left the windows bare-wood, the boys toy bin/ and the coat rack below.
Scotty had this Royals score book stored away.. The colors are perfect and tie in with a vintage feel.....
I can't tell you whats next on my list, we are preparing for the winter and been working outside.
We are still conquering the fist level and I'm great with that. I don't think we will ever be DONE, it's more like we are shooting for a stopping point.
Looking forward to some of my winter indoor projects!
Have a great week, GO ROYALS!!
