A few posts back, you saw the upstairs loft hangout spot for Colt and his friends when they're playing music. Now would you like to see where he lives when he's home and not either eating, watching a movie with us or playing the Wii in the living room?
This is his bedroom. It's located downstairs, right across from ours. The way our home is designed, we have 3 bedrooms and 2 baths downstairs. The upstairs is pretty much an extra for us. It has the open loft area that serves the multi purposes that I shared on a post below when they were playing music. There is also a guest bedroom and a bathroom upstairs. I did think that one day, Colt would decide to move up to that bedroom, just for a little more privacy, but it's never interested him. He's been content to be right down here with us, right across the hall.
He has a futon which serves him well. He sits in there and strums on his guitar, does homework for his college classes, talks on the phone, or plays/works on the computer. (And remember he does most of our laundry, so there's usually a pile of clothes in there that he's working on in between this...multi-tasking, I guess).
See that corner entertainment center? Jason made that....many years ago. It has a cabinet that closes off the small TV that he has in there.
As tempted as I get to go in there and put decorating touches on it, I try to restrain myself and let him have it how he wants it...which is not anything country style. I have a feeling when he has his own place, it will be very modern decor....something like loft style.
The dresser over by the futon is an antique that I bought before he came home to us and it was in his nursery, then later in Joy's nursery, and then returned back to Colt. I have always loved that piece.
And that is where our 19 (soon to be 20) year old son, Colt, "lives" when he's not working or in school. So where does your teenager "live"?
