Waz Up?

So when I meet with a new client, we usually go over their favorite colors, style, interests, etc.  I like to interview my clients (sometimes I hold them down and shine a flashlight in their eyes if I really like them).

The first time I met Caleb he said, “I Like Xbox, Legos, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and I just learned to ride a bike.”  I said, “Ok give me something hard…”  Seriously, trying to combine all of the varied interests of an active 10-year-old can be complicated to put it mildly.  Caleb, his mom, Denise, and I devised a plan to make it all work together. Ready, Break!

 Caleb's grafitti050

We started with metallic silver walls and added custom grafitti.  It incorporates all of his interests now while giving him room to grow.  My favorite part is the Storm Trooper riding the bike.  I seriously think it’s genius!


We built a platform bed with drawers underneath for storage and added an upholstered headboard.  I combined several metallic and patterned fabrics  so that it has plenty of modern attitude. The bed also has a custom fitted coverlet and metallic black pleather euro shams.

 We added touches of red and black with the trim and desk area (also his fav).  The lighting is a Euro shaded track light.  Think modern disco. His bathroom went red too with a special treatment above the potty area.   Does it get better than that??


We are working on his brothers’ rooms now so stay tuned….
