Cassie from Hi Sugarplum! (doesn't that name just make you smile?) has done a fantastic job transforming her home to fit the needs of everyone in it. She's a thoroughly creative DIY Queen--check out her tutorial on new-sew pillows! Today, Cassie is sharing some of her thoughts on the process of creating a cool, big kid bedroom for her 9-year-old son.
Hello Roost Readers! I'm Cassie from Hi Sugarplum! and I'm thrilled to be taking part in this fun series.
I've only designed one room with a guy in mind...and that was my 9-year-old son's 'Big Boy Room' last Summer. I chose strong, non-traditional colors in a masculine palette since the space is all his.
I think the lines of furniture contribute to the gender of a room as well. For instance, the clean, modern lines of his desk and dresser lean towards masculine:
I also paid close attention to the accessories, making sure nothing was fussy or fancy.
As for the rest of the house, it is a delicate balance to join the two genders. But fortunately I don't live with guys who are afraid of pink!
I'm sure any little boy would love such a cool space. Thank you, Cassie!
