of boys and...vintage?

i am a mom of boys. two sons, ages 8 and almost 12. while i've never devoted a lot of time or energy to decorating their rooms; i've certainly tried to sneak in a bit of a vintage feel. as for adding any "junk" - they do that on their own:) so it was fairly easy to find a chippy vintage hook for my older son's room...

and i definitely insisted on white bunk beds, although my husband did not love this idea...
i was fairly pleased with the bed linens...

and even the posters on the door and walls...classic boy, i thought.





but when i peered down under my son's upper bunk a few weeks back, i was a bit taken aback at the "decor" he has added! he's an adolescent all right. i sat there pensively for a while, mourning his fleeting childhood...and then it hit me. archie comics are vintage!!! he's just a boy who loves vintage!

That is a very good reframe! Better Betty and Veronica than other choices!

I totally understand! I have a 15 year old son. They sure grow up fast, don't they?

Have a great week,
