My son wanted a bedroom makeover from little guy to middle school tween! He loves travel and architecture so we decided to use those as the themes for his new decor. I wanted to find a way to let him use his own creativity to express himself in the compilation of his room. After looking at his architectural drawings one day I thought that these would be a fun addition to his room!

It was a work in progress that he could work on whenever he had some free time and was inspired. I bought him lots of books about architecture and how to draw buildings. We looked online at architectural related stories and video and he continued to be inspired. Then, he watched a Batman movie and decided that he would like the bat symbol. ( too cute)

My son traveled to Pennsylvania and saw a game at PNC Park Stadium and came home inspired to add that too.

He learned about Russian art and architecture in school and is working on an inspired replica of St. Basil’s Cathedral.
