Fabric stitched with classic images of a boy's best friend -- a dog -- plus smart color choices, turn this tiny room into a stylish space.
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.
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.
