They had a whole scene on how wonderful their new home looked and how Andrew loves to decorate -- all the while with the brown, green & white striped wallpaper in the background!
I was so excited...and even my husband was a little geeked about it...but we called my son in the room and he was like, "So what, my wallpaper's on TV." Typical 14 year old!
So, anyhow, I thought I would repost some pics of my son's room. We redid his room last May, but it really is still my favorite room in the house (lucky kid!). I hope you will enjoy seeing it again, too.
The stripes here are actually wallpaper and not paint. It is called Figaro Green from Drama I bought it from American Blinds & More.com. The bedding can be purchased at Target, Target.com & Amazon.com and is called: Contemporary Home Ogee Bed in a Bag - Neutral Citron.
Hanging Lantern light is from IKEA. My son chose a green cord to go with it. It blends in pretty well. The body pillow is from Costco and the decorative pillow is from Target.
I couldn't find the 'perfect' rug so I went with 2 circle rugs from IKEA. One is green and the other is chocolate brown. It works and they are very soft, too.
A cool new clock and a Football Memory Board both from Kohls.com.
Nice Dream picture from Target. I like how the greenery in the picture goes with the greenery on his side table too. (Also from Target).
I just have to say...my dh hung this picture up when I was not in the room...and he Gorilla Glued it on because he didn't want to deal with weird 2 nail thingee on the back of this picture...at first I was kind of mad...lol..I mean he put it ON the molding and it is sort of on an angle too how he managed that I don't know...and since it was glued on well that was that...but now every time I see it it makes me laugh...so at least he tried lol ;)
Greenery and revolving photo frame from Target. Green desk lamp from IKEA. Curtains from Lowe's.
This is the wall that opposes the striped wall. It is a chocolate brown (Sweet Georgia Brown by Behr). Then the other 2 walls are a Taupe color. Nice warm colors perfect for relaxing.
