I did a room redo for a new middle school boy, over the summer. It was a blast. This family owns a vacation house in Colorado and this boy loves to ski. Loves the mountain. So we came up with the idea of using the ski slope map as a mural. I did 3 boards for this room. There was one favorite, but we took pieces from other boards, as well.
This is the one we used, for the most part.
Here is the before pic of the main wall.
And the after here. The ski map was made at Murals Your Way. The hanging chair is from Ikea. I loved it in the space because it has the look and sensation of a ski lift. Cool.
His name is Eli, so the recycled metal letters from Watson and Co., add to the industrial/natural vibe of the room, create some depth, and adds a personal touch.
The Deckstool bench (made from recycled skateboards) also helps with the organic, yet graphic feel.
Another view looking out the windows. I love how the Sapphire chandie from Zuo Modern and the Dot Pattern shade from The Shade Store mimic each other in their shapes. When I was installing the room, the Dad came in and saw the connection for the first time and said. “Wow, that’s really cool. Did you do that on purpose?” Well, yeah! 😉
The Cambium Aster Flor tiles look like a blown up version of the maps green forest parts and the red random stripe adds interest and color, which connects the rest of the red elements throughout.
Another view of the right side. CB2 Proof Nightstands and Raven side lamp helps with the industrial look. Bed is West Elm.
The Dot wood hooks are CB2. I really love these. They are so functional, but can also just be artistic by themselves. We showcased Eli’s medals on some of them.
The SKI LODGE pillow by Alexandra Ferguson screams the theme. Bedding West Elm.
We added a few chalkboard sections for expression and homework reminders. This one on the back of a door. Black diamonds all the way!
A great transformation. And great fun to do. A wonderful family to work with, too. Time to hit the slopes! Bring it.
