On our summer road trip, we stopped for lunch in Hood River, Oregon. Next to the parking lot stood the Hood River Hotel, a restored historic hotel towering above the small town. I ran into the lobby for a peak while Lonnie buckled up the kids and saw this:
Not bad, Hood River.
I’m a fan of masculine décor—I actually prefer it, though the feminine colors in my house might make you wonder. So I used the photo above as inspiration for a boy’s bedroom.
Wall color (slate-blue box at top): Sherwin-Williams Granite Peak
Trim color (creamy white box at top): Sherwin-Williams Alabaster
Buffalo-check pillows. A checkered floor is always fun, but if you don’t want to do that, add some checks on your pillows. (Fun fact: I had a black-and-white checkered floor in my bedroom as a teen.)
Sputnik semi-flush ceiling light
Whale vs. squid (I am weirdly obsessed with whale vs. squid everything)
Hustle poster (because isn’t this the word of the year?)
If you have a favorite photo and would like to see it transformed into a layout like this, let me know! I’m always looking for post ideas, and the one you see here and this one too were a lot of fun to put together. •
