I was given the opportunity to design a room for an outgoing 13-year old boy living in his parents newly purchased funky downtown loft. I used a large map print as inspiration to create a mature, nautical space. I chose blue, red and white for the colour scheme as it worked well in conjunction with the concrete floors. I decided to give him bunk beds to make sleepovers possible while still leaving him plenty of room for playing on the floor. I added a topographical style rug, a nautical lamp and a large painting of a sailboat to complete the look. With the addition of a sturdy wooden dresser, this young man is ready to sail off into adolescence in style.
