We Think Someone’s Teething


“Who, me?”


“I just like putting things in my mouth.”


“You know. Whatever’s around.”


“Don’t worry. She’s cool with it.”

MiY 7a: Boy’s Room

In this edition of Making it Yours, we’ll be following the Window Daybed as it shows up throughout a young boy’s life, starting in his childhood bedroom.

Here it is as a little boy’s brand-new bed, complete with cute monster bedding! A bright blue nightstand next to the bed is a good place to store books, and a dresser with wooden sides has gotten a coat of citron paint for more color in the room. The striped rug adds a nice graphic pattern to the room, and a nice clear blue looks great on the walls. The vintage kid’s chair is mid-century modern and the light is new with seventies style, but they work together well and also with all of the new pieces in the room. An alphabet and guitar print adorn the walls, and a really awesome doll house works in the room for a boy just as well as it would for a girl.

The room is for a little boy, but nothing feels too twee or cutesy about it. Next we’ll see the daybed make an appearance in the boy’s teenage bedroom! A lot of the same elements will remain, but the room will grow up a bit as our young boy gets older.
