Way back in December, even before we tackled our daughter’s floors, we removed the grungy carpet from our son’s bedroom and gave it a dramatic facelift with new hardwood floors. Wood floors make all the difference! You can see this room in all its former carpeted glory and read all about it here.
Taking a cue from the new clean floors, I purged a ton of stuff and tried to keep the color palette cheerful but quiet and minimal. The walls are a very pale yellow-green, Behr Rainforest Dew, that I LOVE in real life but can photograph a little gross khaki. I rearranged the furniture again, trying to get a better flow, but am still unsure if all the layering is too much in the bed corner and all the blank space is too little in the chair corner. If nothing else, it’s cozy! I’m on the hunt for a different bed (this one is part of a set that we no longer need and I gotta clear space in the garage) and have halted further tweaking until then. For now, contentment and SO GLAD THE GROSS CARPET IS GONE!! Sources at the end…

FYI, right now it looks nothing like this. The rug is shoved under the bed (eye roll) and legos cover every surface! I’m thankful for the proof that it was clean at least once. Thanks for reading everybody!!! xoxo Jenny
