The Big Boy Bedroom

One of the first things we'll be doing once we move into the new house is transitioning Luke into his big boy bedroom. Right now his room still looks like a nursery and he's actually sleeping in a play pen! (He fell out of the crib about a month ago and it traumatized us both.) We're supposed to be getting a beautiful spindle bed from James' grandmother later this summer. We'll set that up in Luke's new bedroom and pack the ugly play pen away!

Here is what I'm planning on doing for the big boy. (The bed we'll be getting is similar to the one shown below but less black and more brown and more spindly.)

I know you've seen most of these pieces in other design boards I've done. That's because I like 'em, and I'm looking forward to using them in a real life room. Red, blues, browns and a pop of bright green. I'll probably turn the IKEA bookshelf on its side and position it under the window, and I may do an airplane gallery instead of just the one print. Something like this...

I think it will be one sweet space for a very sweet boy!
