Boys Bedroom

Color blocking is an easy way to pull in some extra color and emphasize a simple black and white photo. We painted a large block of pumpkin orange to spruce up this bedroom.

What are the dimensions of this room? - I have a space for a bedroom in the construction of my home, and I am considering splitting it into two guest rooms with a similar shape/layout. Knowing the size of this room would help me know how practical it would be. Thanks!

I'd have to say...the living space, excluding the hallway/entry, is roughly 10' x 14'

Try Valspar's Indigo Streamer for the panelling color, and Hush Hush for the wall color.

The Shabby Nest
This tractor bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids but it is from a previous season and not currently available from PB Kids. You can find it online at ebay and other such sites.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Clever New Uses for the Picture Frame
Add interest to a typically framed photograph with another frame via color-block. On the white wall, this piece would have been lost; against the orange, it pops. This is also inexpensive!
Shawn Gauthier added this to Orange: Still Hot, Hot, Hot
Instead of painting the entire wall, paint an orange square to act as an accent for artwork or photography.
Talk about dramatic! Here a block of orange paint highlights a small photograph framed with an oversized white mat. This is a children's room, so the orange color is a playful choice.
