No more pink for my boy!

Awhile back i did a post on Sam's pink bedroom! Poor Sam had to endure a pink bedroom
for the summer My friend Robin came over and painted the whole room herself!
Is that not the nicest thing ever? My cat Kachina had passed away the night before
so i was needless to say pretty distraught but Robin called and insisted that she paint
Sam's room. She did a wonderful job and she is a professional by the way!

In the beginning i was going to paint his room in a blue colour. We decided on a fresh
white since purchasing him this beautiful red and blue comforter.
I took Sam to the paint store and had him chose his colour.
He chose Cotton Fluff by Behr paints. Great choice.

The vintage toile curtains really add punch to this room. I just love these
curtains. I purchased them back home before i moved. In time i knew i would find
the perfect room for them.

Sam loves maps so i hung my very old world map over his bed. Every morning
i catch him reading it. It fascinates him.

And of course we can't leave out monkey! He loves his monkey that Nana made him
when he was a baby. Monkey fits right into the colour scheme.

Even though it is just his temporary bedroom he loves it. I love it too!
Thanks Robin you did a fantastic job!!
Until next time....

  1. the room looks good. I like the comforter the curtains and especially the chair and monkey.

    It is a nice no frilly room now.

  2. Sam's room looks great, how nice of your friend. That is a good friend for sure.

  3. Sam's room is very nice. That was sweet of you letting him pick the color. I love those toile drapes and that sock monkey being home made is to cute.

  4. looks super cozy, Pam. I like the way the curtains fit in with the whole colour scheme.

  5. Pamela! I adore those vintage toile curtains!! Sam's room looks lovely in the new colour. He room looks so neat & tidy...nothing like MY son's room! LOL! The little monkey is adorable...I have one that my Aunt made for me when I was a baby too! I was thinking of you all this past week after the kitty passed away. It took us almost 3 years to get our little Shihtzus after our Brandy passed away! Angie xo

  6. Wow, that was really nice of your friend, and the color looks so nice! I love the humpty dumpty on the window sil, and of course the monkey...so cute!

  7. Pamela- Lovely make over of Sam's room. I'll bet he is thrilled...cuz his little monkey looks pretty happy too! I know it's the small things that keep you moving along after you lose a pet...and this was a nice little diversion. Hugs to you- Diana

  8. Oh Sam is a lucky boy!...Great choice of colours...the curtains are wonderful and the sock monkey so adorable...am I allowed to say that at your Sams age?.....wonderful post ...I get the orange kitchen thingy we here on the back side of a hill in Abbey need warm colours!...Have a great Thanksgiving!..Colleen

  9. I'm so sorry about your cat. I do love those curtains!

  10. Pamela, Sam's bedroom looks fabulous! I love the colour scheme and those curtains are gorgeous! I love the monkey too:) What a fabulous and special friend you have, you are both very lucky to have each other. Hope you are having a wonderful week ~ Tina xx

  11. What a nice friend to do that for Sam, and you! His room looks great, especially love the world map - he should get straight A's in geography now!

  12. What a precious and vintage-y sweet room. I love the Humpty Dumpty and those beautiful curtains. Boy are you fortunate that he chose "fluff"...my son would have picked neon green. Ha! Beautiful job and a perfect space for Sam. So cool that he loves maps.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  13. Hi Pamela,
    What a wonderfully true friend!!! Not many of us have one of those. She is one to be cherished!
    Your Sam's room looks great!! I love the vintage curtains and bed, I bet he's glad his room isn't pink anymore. ;)
    I hope you are doing okay after the loss of your beloved cat. My thoughts are with you!
    Have a lovely weekend.

  14. I love how everything came together, especially the vintage world map and the red chair. Sam picked the perfect shade of white to compliment his new bedding. Even Mr. Sock monkey looks happier now that the pink walls are gone!
