Growing up a Boys Room (All You Need is Pine)

My boys are growing up. They started high school this fall and we're having fun bringing in some manly vibes for their rooms.

This vignette started with the pine dresser and antique hat rack I picked up a couple of weeks ago.  The strong sturdy pine and original black wood knobs were exactly the look I wanted for this space. 

I want my boys to live with the things THEY love so it's important that they have their stuff around them and also have a say in how their personal spaces look.  I 'm happy to give them options when it comes to art and decorative accessories I think might look good and function for them, and they're pretty decisive, so it's an easy process. 

The flag is a Danish nautical flag I picked up an an estate sale, the mandolin with no strings was a gimme from my dad and the albums were my husbands.

This boy is a musician and avid reader and this is how he likes his stuff :)
