Giving a soon to be big brother, a big boy room.

Leading up to the arrival of Lucas, we wanted to give Calvin a space he could call his own. We spent the summer potty training him, transitioning him from a crib to a big boy bed and preparing him to be a big brother. This fall he turned three years old and I wanted his room to feel bright and exciting.

Much of my inspiration for the room came from Pinterest. I went for a color palette that was a combination of bright and dark, very kid friendly. I took a trip to Home-depot and found this color combination to be beautiful. A tip I would give to any parent trying to paint small areas in their kids room is to buy”8 oz sample paint”. It’s cheaper ( $3.98) and has enough paint to create a color block wall.

Below you will find some pictures I found on Pinterest that inspired the look for Calvin’s room.

I’m so excited to have finally finished Calvin’s room after spending four months putting it together. I created small spaces in his room for him to be a kid and also enjoy alone time. His reading / quiet area is my favorite part of the room, it’s bright and cozy for any toddler. The room also has art work done by my husband and pieces that represent us and Calvin. Below each picture you will find the link to furniture / decor we used for his room. I tried to stay on a small budget and also considered that eventually Lucas will be joining him in his room.

Are you planning on redecorating your toddlers room? I hope this space sparks up your imagination.

    I love the colors you used for the paint and all of the details you added really bring life as well as an illusion to make the space look welcoming. He’s a lucky kid, I wish I would’ve had a room like that one when I was his age! lol
    Hope he is enjoying it!
