I think I’m finally finished with my son’s new room. Well if there is ever such a thing as being completely done because I’m constantly tweaking but for now I’m calling it done. (You can see my previous post about his room HERE and HERE where I also talked more about the sources and reasons why we picked certain things)
sophisticated boys room with dark green walls
Willy has been all over our son’s new room as you can see in the entire post. Especially having something soft to walk on is making it more appealing to everyone.
I’m so happy with the new area rug I picked from PlushRugs for his room. I wanted something that was subtle but still manly. Something that went with his light grey floors and his beautiful antique bed (click HERE for a very similar bed).
I love the look of sisal and natural fiber rugs but they are scratchy most of the time. This beautiful grey flatweave rug (click HERE) has the look of a natural fiber rug but is actually super soft.
We love the fringed edges of the rug. It’s as if it was taken straight from the weaving loom.
And Willy agrees as you can see.
I also caved in and bought a new pouf from the Heart and Hand Magnolia collection (click HERE). I was so sure that I was going to boycott everything they had to offer but I totally couldn’t stick to my initial resolutions. It really is so good and perfect for the wall color and velvet Ikea curtains.
His poster that I made arrived too. I love the German retro logo with the four stars representing their World Cup wins and most importantly our son loves it more than anything.
You can find the black and white plaid pillows HERE or similar smaller ones HERE and similar red plaid pillows HERE. The throw is by Happy Habitat (click HERE or HERE). The large pillows in the back are actually the arm pillows from our basement sectional. I don’t like them on the sofa but they are perfect for his bed to make it more like a sofa. And if you are wondering where his comforter is, it can be shoved into a bin in his closet instead of having to make the bed. It looks so much better without it.
The beautiful bright yellow sputnik fixture (click HERE) that our son picked is perfect for his room and makes it feel more fun. I think without it the room would look a little stuffy and too grown up. It’s the perfect fun addition.

I hung the flag garland (click HERE) that will also display his soccer patch collection on his TV wall and actually ended up cutting it so it can be hung in strands with thumbtacks (click HERE). The banner is another whimsical addition that we love.
Willy is a sneaky little confident guy. Did you see the video of him snatching the food bowl from me on Facebook? Click HERE to see it. He actually does it to the other cats and they look dumbfounded. Like “what the hell just happened”. Cracks me up every time.
He loves to creep on all of us. Just look at his face behind my son in the next photo.

And then he strikes. It was so fast that the photos are blurry.
In the blink of an eye he is on the other side of the ottoman and bites her in the neck to make her leave.
What a little bully but Maya still adores him. And we adore them all.
Update, our son outgrew this bed and has a new one and this one ended up in our daughter’s bedroom which you can see HERE.
We are so happy with his new grown-up room. THE END
