Earlier this year, we shared goals for our homes
, and one of mine was creating a big boy room for my baby, Charlie. I guess he’s not really a baby anymore, he’ll be 3 in July, but you know what I mean. And now that there will actually be a baby in our lives,
we need to move Charlie’s crib into the nursery. Rather than kick him out of the crib right before the baby arrives, we decided to make the transition far in advance so that he doesn’t feel like he’s being replaced. Last week we moved a twin bed into his room and he’s been sleeping in it like a champ ever since!
Now that the hard part is out of the way, I’m ready to begin decorating the room! Of course, I’ve been gathering lots of inspiration on Pinterest and have a pretty good idea of what I want the room to look like. Want to see? 😉 Here are a few of the elements I’m planning on incorporating:
1. I’m so in love with the way the designers layered the headboards in this room. I’m not going to do two upholstered headboards, but am hoping to achieve the same affect with something a little different. Also, man, do I love stripes! That exact striped fabric is defintiely going to make an appearance.
2. Navy! Enough said.
3. Planked walls. I’ve done enough entire wall planking
for a while, but we are going to be dressing a small area of the room with some planks. I just can’t get enough of this style of walls!
4. I know this has been done millions of times, but I’m still digging the monograms on the wall. I love the graphic statement these big letters make without costing a fortune!
5. Sadly, there won’t be any nautical elements like I had originally hoped for. When given several choices, Charlie chose rocket ship sheets (I didn’t even know he knew what they were!) , and even though I’m not going full on space theme, I know nautical stuff would be much more for me than him. Boooo.
