Sterling’s Big Boy Room + Lulu and Georgia $100 Giveaway

Mar 13, 2014

As most of you know we are currently trying to spruce up our bedroom.  But you see I can’t ever just focus on one project and complete it I have to be working on several at the same time. I am crazy like that!   Enter Sterling’s room.  His room and our master were the main rooms I wanted to tackle this year.   It all started when I saw this rug on Lulu and Georgia.  It was the starting point for his room.

I thought it was the perfect rug for a little boys room.  It is an indoor/outdoor rug which I love because they are easier to clean and trust me my little man makes quite a mess!

A few rooms that I pinned for inspiration

I did Sterling’s room two years ago and just want a refresher.    We are not buying new furniture for his room, nothing drastic, just some small changes.  My thoughts are a new rug, new light fixture, artwork, and possibly a fresh coat of paint on the walls,  We are doing all this on a pretty cheap budget so I will be looking for accessories at TJmaxx and Homegoods to save money.

This is his room currently.  This pic was taken awhile back – the rug is now covered in stains so we are going to move it to our garage which is where our laundry machine is so it will be nice to have a rug out there.   I am also thinking a lighter paint color on the walls might be nice and make the room feel larger, leaning towards a Farrow and Ball Gray if we paint.  Loved the brown for four years but kind of ready for a change.  It all will depend how the brown walls look with the rug

I still like his crisp white bedding, I am a sucker for a white bed!

Below are a few things I am loving and considering from Lulu and Georgia for Sterling’s room makeover.

  1. I'm a sucker for white bedding too! Love the rug you chose!

  2. I love the color of his walls!

  3. We just painted over dark brown walls in our boys' room with sw light French grey. I really like how it opened up the space – even though I loved the coziness of the brown. Sterlings room looks perfect, I can't wait to see what it looks like when you are done.

  4. Love the new rug…and love L&G of course!

  5. Adore that L&G rug…fingers crossed I win!!! XoXo

  8. Michaela says:

    Can't wait to see the rug in the room– ah!! LOVE.

  9. Laundry in the garage?! You are a saint! Laundry is dreadful enough as it is… pretty sure I just wouldn't do it if I had to do it in the garage!

  10. that rug is so fun. Love all your picks for Sterling. I'm sure it will be amazing when it's all finished!

    Just so you know the grey and white striped comforter or duvet in that one picture, target sells for much cheaper than some of the other options on the market. I also think it would look cute with painting the bedframe white. More open and such
