Things That Sparkle: Sterling’s Big Boy Room Design

Today I am so excited to have Alex from Things That Sparkle sharing a design for Sterling’s big boy room.  

As you all know I am in the process of starting to work on his room and thought why not get some inspiration from my favorite bloggers.  Alex is insanely talented, gorgeous, and sweet.   Everytime I see one of her designs I am blown away- including her house it is design perfection   So I knew she would have some killer ideas for Sterling’s room.  I love the masculine rustic feel of the room.  Thanks for a fabulous design Alex!

Hi DB&DD readers! I am Alex from Things That Sparkle and I am so excited to be here today filling in for Natalie and offering some inspiration for Sterling’s Big Boy Room!

My idea came from the idea of rustic elements mixed with geometric, more modern patterns.

The grey, taupe and blue is masculine but still perfectly fitting for a growing young man.

    I love the bedding and that rug. Gorgeous rug. I like the colors for a young man/boy's room. They are not over-powering. Great choices. 🙂
