Hello friends, both old and new. I’m Lucy from Craftberry Bush and I’m honoured to be one of the Hello Yellow contributors.

I am very excited to reveal our oldest son’s lofty retreat with you here. As I look through these photos, I can’t help but feel a little nostalgic as I reflect upon how fast time has gone. It doesn’t seem that long ago when hubby and I were decorating a nursery in preparation for the arrival of our first born. Now 15 years old and 6’2″, our teen boy is enjoying his ‘grown up’ room, that we wanted to feel spacious and take on a lofty feel. Something that would not only have minimal items (read: less mess), but also feel cozy.

We opted to line the focal wall with a faux brick panel and added an industrial pipe across the top to hold the hanging cage lights and art work. The watercolour painting seen here is something I had painted for him as he has always had a keen interest in horses and has aspirations of one day being a large animal surgeon. I love the functionality of the beam as it is not only decorative, but the art can be changed easily and as frequently as he would like. I also like the way the cage lighting serve as sconces.

And of course, that’s our dog Brody. He follows me everywhere and makes his way into a lot of photos, so don’t be surprised to see him in future posts.

As mentioned, I wanted the room to be a mixture of minimalist, yet have a warm and cozy feel. By adding this rustic chunky side table, we were able to not only bring in some warm tones, but also add functional storage.

This beautiful side table is the Maya Night Table. While the name might not sound too masculine, the strong and rustic lines make this a perfect fit for a boy’s room or den.

We placed a little ‘work’ area on the opposite side of the room. This wall colour is Tuxedo P5249-85 by ParaPaints, and offers the perfect black with a touch of blue. Traditional thinking has not always embraced painting walls a dark colour for fear it appears cold. It can in fact have the opposite effect, adding warmth to a room and contrary to popular belief, dark paint does not make a room look smaller.

My son picked out this cool office chair and helped me put it together. It’s the Kilbourn office chair and is upholstered in black leather-look fabric with a rich cherry wood frame, which again adds warmth to the space but still has very sleek lines.

We also chose the Claire Desk because of it’s interesting modern lines. It’s black glass desktop and pullout keyboard tray make a perfect work desk space.

Using lots of texture also adds warmth and character to a room.

The horse poster and the deer pillow are both hand-made & available in my shop.

And there you have it – a lofty retreat for a teen. I hope you enjoyed the reveal as much as we did.

Thank you so much for dropping by…I hope to see you soon.

much love,

Lucy

    I am completely obsessed with this boys room. Lucy, I think you must somehow know my son Coltin, from the buck to the guitar and we even have an Aussie! I am intent on trying to recreate this room for his 13th birthday next month and would love to know where you purchased the faux brick panels from. I have searched the internet and not having much luck with that specific color. I will certainly be ordering several of your items and was so excited to see how affordable they are! You are an extremely talented artist.

    From Dallas, thank you for your help!

    Hi Lucy, I really enjoyed your article:)
    Did you take the picture yourself? If yes, I would like to use one of them for a post on a website!
    Should I mention you/the photograph? You blog? Could I buy some rights on the picture..? How do you work for that?

    Hope to hear about you soon,

    xx

    Hello!

    I absolutly love your teen bedroom makeover for your son. I too have a 15 yr old son (5’11”) who is ready to get out of his PB Bunk beds:(

    My son’s room looks like it has the same dimensions as yours. We already have the bamboo blinds, hardwood floors, industrial desk, leather desk chair and tall chest. We are almost there!

    Can you tell me where I can get the faux brick wallpaper? Love that touch!

    Also interested in the where I can purchase the bedding. Thank you!

    Where are the answers to everyone’s Q’s? I too have the same Q’s. Where did the pin stripped duvet come from? Looks like Ikea.

    Simply put, I love, love the boys room. It’s fabulous. My son will be 14yoa in December, and he would love Avignon a room looking like this, as would his mom. We love everything in that room. You tied it together wonderfully.
