Gray & Orange Bedroom Before and After!

A few months ago Jenna from Q.A. Design contacted me about helping her with her little boy’s room. Jenna already has really great taste so it was really a matter of creating a concept that she could run with. 
Here are the before pictures of the room. 

Here is the plan I created for her. 
We wanted a fun space that her boy could grow with. This plan introduced great patterns and colors and it’s definitely a room that any age could enjoy. 
Here is the after! 
The bedding is from West Elm. The roman shades were made by Windows By Melissa using this fabric by Dwell Studio. 
The dark orange pillow was made by Erin from Plush Studio. The fish pillow is from Alice Lane
Custom Portrait done by Birds of Ashmae
The funky rug was found at CB2 but has since been discontinued. The gray lamp is from Alice Lane
The whale bookends are from Alice Lane
The turtle is also from Alice Lane. It’s a little box. The shell opens! 
Trophies and canister are from Alice Lane. The boots were already owned by Jenna. 
The orange frame and dog are from Alice Lane. The elephant print is by Sarah Jane Studios
Car pillow is from Alice Lane
The fox pillow can be found here
I hope you love this room as much as I do. It really was such a fun concept and I hope that her little boy enjoys his room for years to come.

    What a fabulous transformation! I love that the trend in nurseries is going toward making them a bit more grown up so they last.

    Brilliant! What a great room to grow up in.

    I love it! Cute but not overly so. Boyish but not too masculine. Just perfect!

    What a transformation! Looks great!

  18. Mike Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    Wow! It looks amazing!! Have you consider using custom printed wallpaper in any of the rooms you transform?

    Custom wallpaper can add the personal touch that paint can't.

    Let me know your thoughts on the subject.

    Great work!

    It's so much fun Kirsten! And probably the most not-so-fun thing in the room is my favorite because I love it so much – the Expedit! It's awesome and would recommend to anyone. Great for storage, great for display, and super sleek. I love the room Kirsten – great work!

  35. casey at loft and cottage Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 7:09 pm #

    Kirsten, it's so fresh and fun. I'm loving all the little details and am sooo into the rug.

    What a great room! I'll bet the little guy was so excited when he first saw his new digs. I'm also a big fan of the light blue walls with the orange & grey, great choice!

  44. Cecilia Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 12:53 am #

    Great room! Can you tell me what paint color you used on the walls? I want to do a deep pink and robin's-egg-blue color scheme for my 2nd child (girl due in May) and I'd love a color that looks just like this color you used!

  45. christine, just bella Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 4:14 am #

    Love this! The colour palette and all the little details are fantastic!

  46. Lisa @ Cozy Condo Living Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 5:35 am #

  47. Katie Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

    Love Love Love!! I almost ordered a similar rocker for my son's nursery and now I wish I had!

    This is a beautifully done room! I am just loving everything you got from Alicelane, that is some store! Great job, and yes, I am sure the room will be loved for many years to come.

  54. allegra Friday, January 6, 2012 at 5:42 am #

    SOOOOO CUTE!!! That rug is KILLER!! I wish it weren't discontinued. this is my fav little boy room yet. How funny, too… Max totally has that same fox pillow. I was looking for something different and modern and that was one of the first things that caught my eye on etsy… Too bad my fox pillow doesn't look as cute in Max's room as in this room! 🙂 ha ha. Great job Kristen, it's so perfect. Jenna is a lucky ducky!

  55. allegra Friday, January 6, 2012 at 5:42 am #

    I meant Kirsten, LOL. I was typing too fast.

  56. Megan {Splendid Design} Friday, January 6, 2012 at 7:36 am #

    I love this color combination. One again Kirsten you did fabulous job.

    What is the name of this wall color? It's exactly what I'm looking for

  59. truenb Saturday, January 7, 2012 at 3:36 pm #

    Yes, please share the paint color of the walls! It's so subtle and is perfect with the orange and gray…

  60. Lindsay RC Wilson Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 4:28 am #

    Love the room. I know that monitors differ, but how is the orange color, and how much is it enhanced? The fox pillow looks like a really bold orange, but on Etsy, they say burnt orange. Did you have it custom? Also, is there any way to include brands on the Alice Lane items, sine Alice Lane is the retailer not the brand? I noticed some Jonathan Adler items (bookends, turtle box), and since I don't live near Alice Lane, I would be curious if I could find the items elsewhere.

  61. Simply EC Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 6:00 pm #

    I want to echo the commenters that are asking the paint color and brand, what is it? It looks like JUST the color I've been looking for!

  62. tiffany jewellery Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 6:31 am #

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

  63. Denise Briant Tuesday, January 10, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    I love this room, it is simple calming yet so fun at the same time! Great design!

    What i do not realize is in reality how you are no longer really much more well-liked than you may be now. You are very intelligent. You realize therefore considerably when it comes to this subject, made me individually consider it from numerous varied angles. Its like men and women aren't involved except it is something to do with Girl gaga! Your individual stuffs great. Always care for it up!

      Hi! I have actually had many questions about the wall color of this room and unfortunately I don't have it. The client had it custom mixed and can't remember the formula. So sorry!
