But, a couple weeks ago when I was checking on BB's fabric again at fabric.com, and realized it was on sale and I was actually going to purchase it, I just had to do another search for fabric for McCrae's room. And then... I found it. The perfect fabric, to go with that perfect theme, in colors similar to the ones I'd already picked out for him. So I went for it and ordered all the fabric for McCrae's room too!
And here it is :
Don't you just love this?? Oh, I was sooo excited to find it. Honestly though, this theme and fabric is more suited for BB because of his love for cars and trains and things, but I'm sure McCrae will have that same love one day, and I'd already started on BB's room.
And just like with BB's room, I'm doing curtains, fitted crib sheets, pillows and a quilt. Here's what each fabric will be used for :
1. Curtains, quilt blocks
2. Quilt blocks
3. Fitted sheet, quilt blocks
4. Quilt blocks
5. Quilt blocks
6. Small pillow, quilt blocks
7. Quilt backing, fitted sheet, quilt blocks
8. Quilt blocks
9. Quilt blocks
10. Large pillow, quilt blocks
11. Quilt blocks
12. Quilt blocks
13. Small pillow, quilt blocks
Did I go overboard on the fabric? Maybe. But I think it'll look awesome and I'm really excited!!
And here's the inspiration board for McCrae's room :
Now do you see where I'm going with this? The background is similar to the color we painted his room. It's called Walnut Ash by ColorPlace and I really love the color. I didn't really mean for the whole thing to come out with red accent pieces, but it looked cute so I kept it. I plan to do some art or something with maps (anyone have any old road maps they'd like to give me?), one art piece with string art, paint his dresser white, change all of his outlets and light switches from almond to white, put in white doors to his room and closets, add white base boards, I can't decide if I want to install an updated light fixture or a ceiling fan, and he has two closets in his room (not sure why they didn't just connect them into one large closet) and I've been toying with the idea of turning one into a "reading/play" nook. I think that would be really fun for now, but he might appreciate the extra closet when he's older... I don't know. Still toying with that one.
So what do you think?? Do you like where I'm headed? It was a challenge to design a room for a little boy. I like room designs for little ones to be something they can really grow in to. I don't want to have to do this every 3 years because they suddenly don't like hot pink, or the Cars movie anymore. That's why I really love that, for both of our boys, their room designs can grow with them for quite a while.
How did you decide how to decorate your little one's room or how did you decorate your room when you were little?
