I've been insanely busy this past summer, working on a major new project (stay tuned!) and I haven't been posting as much as I used to. I also lost my phone cord and finally got around to ordering a new one. And the boys turned 2 and 3 in July. Can't believe I'm even saying that!! Where does the time go?
One of the things on the drawing board these days is updating Liam's room. When he was born, I did up his nursery in blue and brown with a monkey theme. The color on the walls is Caribbean Blue by Benjamin Moore. The decal was from Etsy and I hand painted the letters on his wall.
This decal was from Toys R' Us.
The pics on the wall are just canvases with fabric wrapped and stapled to them. Easy and cheap.
When we moved to this house, I just hung up the pics and left the room as it was, knowing he'd be moving to a big boy bed soon enough. Seems like that day is finally here. We still haven't landed on what we're doing (I'm hoping for Pirates!) but I've been so inspired by the beautiful rooms I've been pinning on Pinterest. Here are a few of my favourites....
Love the red and blues in this room from Beneath My Heart along with those industrial shelves.
Similar colors were used in this air plane room that I found on Etsy. I'm not a red lover but it really works with the light blue and navy.
This bright, shared room caught my eye right away at Project Nursery. The hounds-tooth wall, the pallet bed with crib mattress and the colors are just fantastic!
More aqua and orange from Dream Big, Small Fry featured at Honey We're Home.
A Pop of Pretty transformed her nursery into a bright and colorful toddler room for her twins. I like the way the beds are pushed together...good for twins but my two would maul each other. So cute, though!
I've been considering having the boys share a room since they're pretty good sleepers and all. Love this idea from Pottery Barn Kids... the placement of the beds is a great space saving idea. The names and colors are pretty awesome, too.
This bunk bed set-up, also from Pottery Barn Kids is pretty swanky, too. Love me some navy stripes.
More navy stripes, this time on the wall from I Love That Blog!
Have I ever mentioned how much I love navy? And navy and yellow together, just make me feel happy. Another gorgeous space and shared bedroom from Home Stories A to Z.
This shared room, featured on Better Homes and Gardens, is my absolute favorite. It appeals to my love of color and my fondness for pirates and boats. A boat bed?? To heck with the boys, I want one for myself!!
