Our Home Editor, Audrey, is moving to Texas! Sad for me, excellent for RG...because now she'll have a whole new house for us to tour. Before she goes, let's look at her favorite decor moment in the house: Her four-year-old's warm, modern bedroom.
Before we pack up and move to Texas, here’s a farewell tour of our favorite bedroom in the house: Huxley’s room! When the house was built in 1926, this was the original primary bedroom. In 1986, the previous owners converted it into a library when they added a second story and moved the primary bedroom upstairs. When we bought the house last year, we removed the back wall of built-in shelves to make room for Huxley’s bed so that the space would feel more like a bedroom.
When designing this space, I started with the wall color. I fell in love with Oakmoss from Sherwin Williams, and we’re actually going to paint Huxley’s Texas room the same color! From there, I chose the Malta Hand-Knotted Jute rug from Serena & Lily, which brought in some pattern and texture. I'm a big fan of choosing the largest rug possible for kids’ rooms to maximize the soft play space on the floor. For this room, we went with the 9x12 size, which also provides ample protection for our hardwood floors.
