stenciled argyle pattern.

remember a while back when i painted this room? well, after i painted it, we (my client and i) were itching to do something in her son's room that was just as complementary and fun as my last stencil, but in a more masculine way.

here is what we came up with:

(his room is the exact same as her's, but everything is flip-flopped!)

i made a diamond stencil, and a stencil for the cris-crossed pattern on top of the diamond.

we wanted it to be very subtle, so the colors are "barely there". i love the subtlety!

here is the opposite side of the room - across from the bed.

here is the room with no lights on, so you can see how soft the colors are:

and, for the comparison, this is his sister's room, which i completed last summer:

  1. LOVE this! I love argyle too. Just the right amount of subtly to last for many years to come! Not 'baby-like.'
    I might just be your biggest fan!

  6. you are quite the rockstar, kristen! i like that it's a pattern that you don't see very much, as well. i'm also digging the client's drapery in the little boy's room--do you know where she got it from?? i'd love to know!

  7. As always, very impressive, Kristen. Your creativity is inspiring me in quality and quantity. I'm going to miss seeing your posts for a couple months (I'll be out of Internet range), but at least I have something fun to look forward to in September. Enjoy your summer!--Shauna

  11. Hello Kristen! I love this room. I have a baby boy and am trying to decide what to do with his big boy room. Do you know where the bedding and pillows came from?
