Dresser and RockerA mom enlists hosts Matt Fox and Shari Hiller to make over a bedroom for her two young sons. These boys are so close they want to share a room together and need space to read, play and, of course, store their clothes. With furniture, fabrics and bedding, the room is magically transformed into the perfect space for these two boys!
Blue walls make this entire room seem smaller and since this will now be shared by two brothers, more furniture needs to come in to make it useful for sleeping, playing, reading and schoolwork.
small rocking chairs (Anywhere Rocker) - Pottery Barn Kids
area rugs (small round yellow and large teal) - Waxman's Carpet
furniture (nightstands, Taranto dresser), Roman shades - World Market
ladder shelves - Pier 1 Imports
reversible comforter set/sheets - Sears
cream and silver lamps - Lowe's
Storage and ArtworkNew furniture beautifully matches two antique sleigh beds and will afford plenty of room for the boys' clothing. A string of fabric flags is inexpensive artwork they won't outgrow.
Lacking ComfortEven though this room has a strong wall color, it still seems cold and needs more finishing touches to make it comfortable for the kids to spend lots of time in.
Room to PlayA soft area rug and a linen weaver paint technique on the walls in a soothing color provide the perfect backdrop for fun reading chairs for the boys.
