Simple, industrial-style metal chairs add vintage appeal to this seating area in the Little Boy Blu room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014, which was designed by Shelley Cahan as an upscale retreat for the youngest gentleman of the house.
When creating the Little Boy Blu room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014, designer Shelley Cahan left the room’s existing fabric wall treatment intact. The room’s muted blue-and-gray color palette with youthful pops of persimmon complements the patterned walls.
Designer Shelley Cahan designed the Little Boy Blu room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 to capture a sense of boyish adventure. The space features vintage-inspired nickel accents, distressed furnishings and a hand-drawn airplane on the ceiling.

Designers hung artwork over the dresser that isn't too "little kid-ish" but is still fun and exciting. These pieces are fun and youthful, but can be easily exchanged for something more sophisticated the homeowners' little boy grows.
The homeowners wanted a room that could grow up with their little boy, so designers chose timeless pieces of furniture and base linens for that specific purpose. Designers took liberty to make the room more fun with the artwork, throw pillows and other decor they brought into the space.
To make this little boy's work space extra personal, designers had him work on paper crafts that they hung in the homework area above his desk. They also ordered coloring books, pencils, crayons and art supplies for the desk so that it was ready to use once the renovation was complete.
The sea blue tiled floor is designed to look like the ocean floor and picks up the Noah's Ark theme from the little boy's bedroom. The pinstripe walls add pattern to the classic space, while the white vanity boasts open shelving for the easy retrieval of towels and toys.
This little boy's bedroom is filled with his favorite things. Green leaves create a canopy and complement the green-painted floor and green accents, including bedding, an area rug, toys and a stepstool. A built-in craft desk founds out the very playful space.
The homeowners wanted a nursery that would inspire a love of nature and the outdoors in their little boy, so designers drew their inspiration from the mountains of North Carolina. To create a focal point in the space, designers even commissioned a mountain mural on the wall behind the changing table.
Before the makeover, this little boy’s room didn’t show his love for fishing or space at all. As part of a Dwell with Dignity makeover, designer Egypt Sherrod redecorated the space to make it more personal.
