Striped Accent Wall

 This is my son Will's room, my little man will be 9 in May. I really wanted to do something fun in here for him, since it always seems like I'm tweaking the girls rooms!! We painted his room about 5 years ago the color is Ben. Moore nantucket fog. I love the blue/gray color of his room and believe it or not the walls stayed in good condition! So I decided to add a striped accent wall near his bed. The color of the stripe is  Ben. Moore  newburyport blue. He LOVED how it  made his room look so of course it put a smile on my face!







The poster size picture over his bed is him playing soccer last year. My husband had it made up for him and we gave it to him at Christmas. ( I think it was his favorite gift )!! He's been playing since the age of 4 and loves it! He also loves to play baseball.


        He shares a jack & jill bathroom with my youngest daughter.

 ooops forgot to put the other sheet on to cover the boxspring, must of been in a rush that day! I'll do a post of the whole room soon I want to paint one of his dressers first.


Hope everyone had a great weekend! And as always I love hearing from you!  Martina

The stripe was a great idea, Martina! I love the way it breaks up the room and becomes a focal wall for his bed.

The room looks very nice. Would like to know where the bedding can be purchased. I have been looking for something like this for a few months. Fingers crossed that I can find it with your help. Thanks, Vicki

Anonymous, I purchased the bedding last year in Target. I think they still have it. Hope this helps. Martina

Such a great room! The striped wall is fantastic (admire your patience). I love the personalized print above his bed (what a cutie), and the baseball lamp is too cute. My kiddo (5) has a "sports" room, too. :) (Love the jack and jill bath!) *Becca*

Hi Martina...

Wowzer! Girl, you have been in the painting mood! Hehe! I think the striped accent wall looks absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Seriously, it added so much interest to this room! It really gives it a nautical feel...don't you think? And...the big photo of your son playing soccer is so precious! Ohhh boy, I can hardly wait to see what you are doing to your son's dresser now! Hehe! Enjoy your remodeling, sweet friend!

Warmest wishes,
Chari
