Creating a manly bedroom shelter for a college freshman

January 19, 2017 - table lamp

(The Washington Post)

Gayle Herbert’s son, Teddy, is a beginner in college, and she wants to give him a some-more grown-up space to hang out in when he comes home to Arlington. His 11-by-15-foot room has not been updated most given he was a toddler. Because Teddy is still a large ball fan, she wants to incorporate that into a design, though she would like a space where he can work and loll and that would be suitable for guest during some point. She is struggling to find a good seat arrangement around all of a windows and doors. Teddy is tall, so a queen-size bed is a must. Herbert wants a roof fan and room-darkening shades.

Designer Shawna Underwood keeps a existent headboard and area carpet to leave income in a bill for high-quality pieces. She goes with a neutral substructure for a space, that can be simply updated with accessories over time, and brings in a ball thesis with some-more worldly pieces.

Freshen a space with a comfortable neutral, such as Sherwin-Williams’s Eider White. Natural timber and bronze finishes give a space a cozy, manly feel. A list and chair with a tiny footprint are ideal for a college student. The open bottom accommodates a usually atmosphere opening in a room. A satin nickel roof fan will refurbish a room while still providing a preferred atmosphere circulation. Choose a basic, neutral duvet cover for versatility, and dress adult a bed with chuck pillows. They move in settlement and tone though can be simply changed. Blue blind panels with bronze hardware mounted tighten to a roof supplement tallness and tone to a space. A saddle leather chair and ottoman are a ideal place to relax and review a book or work on a laptop.
