Two grandsons & their bedroom

This particular set of grandparents coverted two spare bedrooms into special retreats for their grandchildren. One for their grandsons and one for their granddaughters. For their grandsons they desired to create a handsome room infused with a little youthful appeal.

Two matching beds, two different superheros, one chic chair, one shadowbox (made by the grandfather) and a fabulous paint job to create an inviting space for a three and six year old!   

The room is chic and youthful, yet not too juvenile.  

There is a lot of effort that goes into designing, creating and executing a space, so I always champion a timeless room that is sprinkled with transitional touches. You too?

I think it means so much when a space is created with the guest in mind. Little boys will love pretending they have super powers in this special room!

Thanks for all of your comments! I think it is fair to say that this grandma/pa might be strong contenders to win "Grandma & Grandpa of the year" awards!

Just found your blog via "the Zush" and enjoyed reading your post. it is wonderful to see grandparents being so sensitive and design such fun and crisp bedrooms for the grandchildren.
My kids while visiting their french or american grandparents had to endure antique beds with horsehair mattresses, furniture one could not touch and rooms hidden away on the nursery or children floor (third floor) with no air conditioning....
