Buongiorno from Milan. I am hard at work spotting trends and being inspired in Italy. Work on Bo’s room has been slightly halted by my transcontinental hop. I intend to go into overdrive next week.
Despite my travels, Bo’s room is coming together slowly but, surely!
I have decided to keep his basic color palate the same. I am going slightly Rock and Roll with a nod to the UK with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones which happen to be a few of his favorite bands. A big gallery wall will be in the works too including all his favorite things.
Headboard: Lulu Dk Color Wheel in Ocean – design to be simple with oversized nailheads. I chose this pattern because of it’s graphic nature and the mixture of blues that could be incorporated.
Walls: Thibaut Shang Extra Fine Sisal in Wedgewood Blue Navy grasscloth will add a level of sophistication and much needed texture to a plain jane room.
