Riley's Room {Client Project}

I realized this week that I had not posted about a wonderful project I did last year for Kathi's son Riley who was ready to move up from his nursery to a new room.  Well… he might not have been ready to move at first but his new baby brother was about to push him out!  Unfortunately, I never took a before photo but it was a guest room with a variety of furniture that got moved to a spare room in the basement.  

Kathi had already chosen this furniture but we made some final decisions on the pieces.  She was very interested in a blue/gray scheme with orange accents, so that's the direction we went. 

Kathi had also seen some amazing horizontal striped curtains that she loved but we ultimately decided they might overpower the room.  And she already had plantation shutters (my new obsession) so the room did not really need any more window covering.

You can find sources for the rug and wall art here.

Orange is such popular accent color right now.  I'm guess red is going to be the next "it" color.  I will miss orange though because it's such a cheerful option and goes with pretty much everything.
