Modern Country Style Boys' Bedroom Reveal And Resource List

The reveal of our Modern Country Style boys' bedroom....
is here!!


Here's what we started with...


Possibly the world's most epically colourful room...

Green, yellow, orange and white.
Not a touch of Modern Country Style in sight.
{A li'l bonus poem thrown in for free ;-) )


We started off by getting the bones of the room right.
Removing the dated glass above the door.


Replacing the door itself with a stripped pine beauty sourced from Oxford University made the most enormous difference. We've done this throughout the whole house and it was one of the best investments we made, and one I recommend to clients who live in period houses but have inherited ugly replacement doors. You'll be amazed by the difference.


We had the floorboards stripped, sanded, stained and varnished to withstand all that little boys can throw at it!! The built-in wardrobe doors were waxed, and the original fixing giving a good rub-down.


The bespoke shelves were put in by the previous owners and were way to good to rip out so we incorporated them into the room by painting the framework Dulux White gloss  (my go-to white). We left the inners as bare wood because I want to minimise chipping in the future.


The walls were painted in Farrow and Ball's Pale Powder (case study here) the softest pale duck egg you can imagine (click through for the full Colour Case Study) with the ceiling in Dulux White.


The large check duvet is from The White Company.

The red gingham curtains and lampshade are from The White Company. {These have been discontinued.}


Our boys loved being here.


Loved? Past tense?

Can that be right?!
