JONAH’S ROOM

Designing our Jonah-man’s bedroom was such a fun task. Jonah has the biggest, kind heart and is constantly looking for ways to brighten everyone’s lives around him. He’s also extremely generous and so I wanted to give him a space of his own that he could enjoy and play creatively in.

We choose Benjamin Moore’s Simply White for the wall color throughout the house and I still love the bright, warm glow it brings to every room.

When putting his room together after moving into our house two years ago, I mixed old and new to create his room. He was just transitioning into a big boy bed when we moved in so we ditched his crib and put together this grey twin bed. I fell in love with this blue stripe bedding from Pottery Barn kids. It is incredibly soft and the perfect, cozy thickness.

His room is not a big space but a great size to fit the essentials. We started off with his bed against the wall and after a year moved it to the center of the room to give him play space on either side of it. Jonah is a little fish and loves the water, whether swimming in a pool or in the ocean. His baby nursery was nautical themed and so I carried this over as his room grew up.

I decided to keep his walls white and continue with the light, bright, beachy theme. I had debated doing a grey accent wall but in the end I am happy I decided to keep them white. The navy curtains and white accent, storage table are both from Ikea. The overstuffed, leather chair was a Craigslist find, after I realized I needed another armchair when our previous one needed to be used in the nursery. To me, it is so important to have a spot to snuggle up and read in, in every room!

This dresser was originally used in Graham’s nursery and ended up in Jonah’s room. I love how a well made, beautiful piece of furniture stands the test of time and remains classic no matter how trends change. It’s always hard to invest in nicer pieces but it definitely pays off in the long run.

In my opinion, the most successful rooms are the ones that are a mix of well-loved sentimental pieces, in a fresh, newly designed space. I loved creating this room for our sweet boy and I hope it will be a place he loves and finds relaxing for years to come! I will tag all room sources over on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app.

Thanks for following along with me!
