A Colorful and Eclectic Boy’s-Bedroom Makeover

There are few 12-year-old boys who will let their mother go anywhere near their bedroom door, let alone decorate their space. But Noah is an exception. He’s lucky to have one of the coolest moms around: Toronto-based interior designer and brand strategist Sarah Walker. With an incredible sense of style and an amazing ability to balance the old, new, bold, restrained, and playful, she’s pretty much the best thing that could happen to a budding teen boy’s bedroom—to a point. To top it off, Noah is a design enthusiast himself, so the prospect of decorating his space was an exhilarating one. “He loves design and is passionate about details, so he definitely had a voice in the design direction,” Sarah tells us.
