The decorating mission for this boy's room was clear: Make the room live larger than its size, keep it uncluttered, and give it a sophisticated look that can grow with a boy from infancy into grade school.

What better place to start when creating a boy's favorite space than man's best friend? The family's Cavalier King Charles spaniel provided the inspiration for a few accent pieces and the classic, masculine color scheme of neutral khaki with bursts of red and black.

A smart solution for a small bedroom, built-ins with window seats add style, seating, and toy storage. The made-to-measure units maximize height and capture corner space without intruding into the room.

Striped tone-on-tone beige walls flow into the neutral carpet, making the small room seem larger. Placing furnishings against the walls leaves floor space to play. Soon, a twin bed will replace the crib, and putting it against the wall will keep the room as spacious as possible.

With colors pulled from the window seat below it, the detailed valance is playful enough for a child's room yet tailored enough to look masculine as the room's resident grows up.

An old dresser, painted black over a red glaze, provides practical storage and contrast against the room's neutral walls. An antique Staffordshire dog figurine was fashioned into a playful lamp that sits atop the dresser.
