I HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED THIS FINAL REVEAL!!!!

ALL IN ALL THIS WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE…I CHERISHED THE TIME I SPENT WITH MY SON ON HIS FIRST “OWN” ROOM…OTHER THAN THE ONE ROOM HE OCCUPIED A CRIB IN THE NURSERY. IT WAS SOMETHING I WISH I COULD GO BACK AND DO OVER AND OVER AGAIN….DESPITE OUR DIFFERENT TASTES AND STYLES…

MY BABY WILL ALWAYS BE MY BABY

MY BABY WILL ALWAYS BE MY BABY

OUR CHILDREN GROW UP TOO FAST…AND THIS IS THE ROOM WHERE COOPER PLAYED FOR HOURS WITH LEGOS AND THE ROOM THAT COOPER WILL LEAVE FROM FOR COLLEGE … HE MADE IT HIS OWN…AND THE LEVEL OF COMPROMISE WAS GOOD FOR ME …

COOPER AND PHOEBE

COOPER AND PHOEBE

IT WAS A LESSON IN RESTRAINT…BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT KIDS ROOM…TEEN ROOMS ESPECIALLY…NEED TO BE STREAMLINED…KIND OF A BLANK SLATE AT THE ONSET…WITH LOTS OF ROOM FOR THEM TO EXPRESS WHO THEY ARE…WHO THEY ARE BECOMING…THE TRUE REVEAL OF THIS ROOM WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE NEXT 4 YEARS…AS COOP EXPERIENCES LIFE!

THANKS FOR FOLLOWING ALONG….

    Lesli – This looks fantastic. Love what compromise created. What a good Mom. What a good Son! Scoop – enjoy your HS time (in and out of this room). The world IS your oyster!

    Great job! I love how modern and bright it is. That lamp with the matchbox cars is really cool, and I love the desk area with the map. Great advice about keeping a blank slate for your son to express who he’s becoming, advice I probably should have followed for the room I just finished for my littler boys (also for the challenge)…but didn’t. Oh well, we had fun.

    What a perfect room for a high school boy! I love the colors – beautiful lamps by the way! It looks like the perfect place to hang out with friends, do homework, dream and sleep too ; )

    It’s so hard to do boys’ rooms, but you’ve done a lovely job! Mine is 5 and I’m already scouting ideas for the next go-round. I love that you left plenty of space for him to make it his own. Congratulations!

    I love the colors in this room. I think what you said in the end is so true. Creating a streamlined space allow them to make the room their own, and it will become more his room as he continues to experience life. Great job!
