You all know how much fun I have decorating kid’s spaces and lucky “The Lamp” provided me a chance to design a little boy’s room! The room needed to have that “All American” feel with a big emphasis on baseball- America’s favorite past time! So, not surprisingly I went with a red, white, and blue color scheme while also adding my favorite color- gray. Here’s how it turned out!
One of the first things you may notice is the baseball border. Our team searched high and low for a wallpaper baseball border with no luck. We had no time to order and wait a few weeks for a solution, so we had to come up with a creative alternative. Chris (the Production Designer) created this border in what seemed like a matter of minutes! He nailed 1X8’s the the wall, had some assistants attach baseball scrapbook paper to the front of the boards, and then attached corner trim to the top and bottom to really finish out the edges. It looked great! Fantastic job Chris!
You may also notice the old school desk that I used as a nightstand. I just love that it speaks to the fact that this is a kid’s room, is functional for storing books, ect, and was inexpensive!
Above the bed, I created some custom art and hung a cardboard deer head that I got from Urban Outfitters.
In the corner I hung two picture mobiles that add a ton of texture to the scene. Texture is GREAT for the camera! These mobiles were also from Urban.
When I told Chris that I envisioned a corner shelf to hold all of the trinkets that tell this boy’s story, he loved the idea and had this custom shelf built an hour later. Then, we stained it to bring more warmth into the room.
I love all the fun accessories on the shelves, from the sock monkey to the gum ball machine!
Generally, a baseball rug would be way too literal for me, but I actually love this one I found it online via Walmart.com.
Besides the sock monkey, my other favorite accessory in this space is the mini Radio Flyer wagon. Can you say ADORABLE??!!!!
I took the doors off this armoire and added the striped wallpaper to the back to create more interest and more display space. In a real life room, I might have left the doors on for concealed storage. But for the movie I needed to make sure there wasn’t a big blue box hogging the frame.
That’s it for this one folks, stay tuned for more movie news on Monday!!!!
