In a color scheme of navy, teal, walnut and antique gold, this children's bedroom is both masculine and fun. Newly-built walls allow for custom-made American walnut bunk beds that provide each boy with his own private cave. Antique brass wall sconces are tucked inside of each boys bunk so that reading in bed is cool and convenient.

Sarah Barnard designed the custom brushed brass ladder and bed rail to complement the antique metal finishes throughout the boys' bedroom. Each bunk bed has a pair of blue linen draperies lined with black-out lining. The draperies fit neatly into custom grooves in the bunks so that everything stays just where it belongs.

The vintage inspired brass and black chandelier makes the room glow with warm diffuse light. Handmade American walnut floating desks paired with small scale marble lamps provide each boy their own study space. Each boy's desk includes a utility wall with a chalkboard, pin board, metal panel for magnets and wipe off board calendar. Cantilevered desk chairs in antique brass and black leather complete the look.
