A Bright Front Door!

Designing a Bedroom for my Son

Designing a Bedroom for my Son I absolutely love designing kids bedrooms! The creative freedom is so invigorating plus kids make  fun clients. My oldest son has been asking for black walls, which is very different from his light and bright room right now. I love this room designed by Kristin Jackson of the Hunted Interior. The warm wood tones and black are yummy! I know that people struggle with how  "themed" or "young" a [...]
