Happy Wednesday! If you have been around here for a while, you may recall a couple prior versions of Sawyer’s bedroom. Unlike Emmy, he does not like much change, so it’s just had some minor tweaks over time. When we first moved in, we created a Star Wars inspired space for him. Last year we added in Americana since he loves history. You can click here to see where it was a year ago. Honestly, not much has changed, but we changed out the two dressers for one longer midcentury dresser, and of course we added some awesome lego storage under his bed. But also, if I am being honest, last week the kids rooms were in tip top shape, cleaned and organized (I will be sharing more on that soon!), so it was the perfect chance for me to shoot them and update them.
So here we go again with Sawyer’s red, white, and blue Star Wars and Americana inspired boy’s bedroom!
As I said, the major change was taking Sawyer from two smaller dresser to one larger dresser. I loved the clean lines of this midcentury piece and felt more mature for my growing boy. We had to also spread the beds a little farther apart which really opened up the center of his room, which is where he plays with all of his legs. Win win!
On top of the dresser, we “decorated” with things that are special to Sawyer, including several of his books and treasure boxes as well as some special photos, and of course his Darth alarm clock!
I purchased the vintage flag almost two years ago at the Country Living Fair and it might be my favorite piece in the room! The red garland is from Ikea at Christmas time, but I thought it was a fun touch year round.
I have also brought in a little bit of new artwork, including this C3PO poster which we carry at Sweet Clover. And I want to note that the lego Star Wars pillows were hand made by my mom…. they were so time consuming and challenging that they are sure to be one of a kind.
In the gallery wall, I also added some new art… A “Love You More! Nope, That’s Impossible!” print from Sweet Clover. That’s our special saying and the artist added the “Nope, That’s impossible!” for me. I found the weathered metal “9” on the ground when I was out for a walk last week. Sawyer’s birthday is August 9th, so I thought it was perfect for him!
Sawyer is always pretty content to keep his room from changing… but recently he did ask me to paint the rest of the walls navy, like the angled wall….And I would love to change out the ceiling fan at some point, too. So there are still some projects in the wings for this space! But I thought it was worth updating!
