Football Room Reveal

Finally, I am sharing my Football Room Reveal! This has been a long time coming . . . like a few years:) Seriously, I cannot believe how fast time flies by, and the last year has been the quickest, yet longest time of my life.  This was a REALLY fun room to do! 

At first, I was a bit unsure what direction I wanted to go. Normally when you think football you think of a brown leather ball. But I wanted to go with something totally out of the box, a fresh take on a football look. So the gray and blue color scheme was just perfect. I put my creative juices to task and from there it all came together. 

There are so many great elements about this room that I didn't want to pass over or forget to share with everyone so here it is...
The room is in the basement. We finished it on our own a few years after moving into our home. 
My husband (AKA the handyman) framed, sheet rocked, and also did the finishing trim work. He did such a good job. We used shiplap planks, in an X pattern, using reclaimed wood that we rescued from an old barn being torn down. It was fun to breath life into them again. 

When I set out to design, I love to focus on the details of a space. It really is in the details that makes all the difference in a finished room. 

The Lighting:
Lighting is a huge part of the details for me, including finish work and elements that really add a fun and personalized touch. 
In the boys room, I added some of my favorite industrial lights. These sconces found at Lowes for less than $30. HINT: they are really outdoor lights, but who says you can't bring the outdoors in ;) 

The Vinyl:
I custom measured the space and had a resource on Etsy customize the yard lines and names for me. 

The Vintage Football Pictures: 
This was a bit more challenging, but after searching on pretty much every stock photo option online, we finally found some High Res pictures that we could blow up. Our local print company worked with us to mount and texturize them. They are one of my favorite elements of the room. My sons' Great Grandpa Oliver was a Football Star during this vintage football era. My husband really enjoyed seeing a bit of his grandpa reflected in the space.

If you are coming from Heathered Nest WELCOME! I am so happy you are here!

This Season, I went back to what I love and brought out the soft elegance of years past.  I  would have to say my all time favorite tree was my Better Homes and Garden Tree that was featured in their 2017 BHG Christmas Ideas magazine.
I took that tree as my inspiration and added a twist. I didn't incorporate the red, but instead focused on black and green accents mixed with all the silver and mercury I adore and pops of cream and white. I  love how it turned out! It feels so fresh and bright!  Hope you enjoy :)
