As our move approaches I am starting to photograph our current home, room by room, for sentimental reasons. We loved our cozy little home from the very first time we walked through the front door, so much so that we put an offer in the same day. As much as we loved it that day over 4 years ago, we adore it even more now that we have transformed each room to reflect our family. I want to capture every little detail for our photo albums and I thought it would be fun to share with you some of “our space” before we set off to our new home. So join me for a room by room tour of the Holzmann abode, we hope you like it as much as we do. This is our space.
First up—Jack’s bedroom–probably my favorite room in the house because of how much fun it was to put together. Jack and I spent months finding pieces for his room and the end result was greater than the original vision I had by far.
The décor style for each room always seems to start with one single piece for me. This piece for Jack’s room was the big pirate ship on his wall. We found the ship thrifting one day for 6$, and then from there, we developed the idea to do a voyage themed room. I am not one for “themed” rooms so I wanted the room to have a theme without really feeling like we just ordered an entire bedroom set from Pottery Barn. We pulled inspiration from tons of catalogs and colors from different pieces we found at thrift shops.
When we were looking through a magazine to get wall color inspiration, Jack found a room with the navy striped walls that he really liked. From there everything just seemed to come together. Jack’s last room was a colorful Dr. Seuss room and so I wanted this room to be slightly more sophisticated, but also still very much a little boys room. Almost every piece in his room is thrifted from somewhere or another which is probably why it remains my favorite room in the house. I will always remember what fun we had picking each treasure out, one by one, and the exciting feeling of finding “perfect” pieces for the room.
I was so sad to be done decorating this room that afterwards I immediately started re-docrating our master bedroom! I guess once you get the decorating itch you can’t be stopped.
Feel free to comment below with any questions about items in Jack’s room. Like I said, most of them were thrifted but there are a few items that were purchased new–I would be happy to point you in the right direction of an item. As always thanks for stopping by and stepping into our home –remember this is the first part of a series on The Holzmanns, so be sure to check back to see more of our home.
