progress in the boys' room

Last we saw the boys' room, it looked like this:

Those crooked stripes on the right drive me nuts.

I had thought up a number of possible moodboards, and was undecided which way to go.  This weekend I took down the blue striped curtains and thumbtacked them to the wall, to simulate the moodboard where I had them framed and hung behind the beds.

It felt really busy. It wasn't quite what I wanted.

My sister asked me to buy some of these trellis curtains for her nursery and bring them with me on my next trip home.  I bought them a few days ago...and they looked so nice....and I was considering them for the boys' room I took them out of the package and put them up, just to see how they looked (with sister's permission, of course).

They look lovely, dontcha think?  I think so.  I think they are staying.  I went back to ZGallerie and bought another set for sister.


  1. I love the curtains...and Z gallery. Are you considering a navy grosgrain stripe added to them? This is a fantastic boy's room.

  2. i love the new curtains! they add a nice modern touch!

  3. Oooh! The new curtains look great! I kind of want them for my bedroom now too.

  4. Holy crap, I love those curtains! They look great in there, and they would look amazing in my bedroom, too....hmm...

  5. like the curtain....the room is given a soft touch...I like it.

  6. I agree, the trellis curtains look best. I wish I had a z gallerie near me

  7. Totally would keep those curtains. Really like the blue and orange color combo, especially for energetic boys.
