When I found out I was preggo for the second time around, I am not going to lie, I had PINK on the brain. I already had the name and the room colors picked out. When my hubby and I heard, "It's A Boy!" I was shocked to say the least. I am such a girly girl and my daughter is following closely in my footsteps. I was not sure how I would be able to transition my fog of pink into shades of blue?? Once the shock was over the excitement definitely began!!
I wanted a room for my little boy that he would be able to grow into for years to come. My hubby and his family are very involved in the sport of Hillclimbing and dirtbike riding, so I wanted a touch of him and a touch of me incorporated in the room. I decided the room was shaping into "Vintage motorcycle meets Pottery Barn simplicity". I cannot tell you how many days and nights I spent on the Internet looking for ideas of inspiration. Some of the sites I loved looking at were Project Nursery, Pottery Barn Kids, and HGTV. I also found this amazing site called DecorPad, which is where I found the wall inspiration you see in the above pictures. I loved the unique color combo of oranges and browns, so I ran with it! I then turned to ETSY to have the crib bedding made to coordinate with the colors of the room. I found the very talented Wild Honey Pie Custom Designs to make the bedding from, Riley Blake My Minds Eye Orange All Star Collection.
I was at Lowes looking for storage containers one day and came across these orange plastic stack able shelves (for $15!!). I originally wanted a window seat for the room made from wood. When I brought them home it was Bri's genius idea to lay them out horizontally and make a window seat out of the shelves instead! So, with some 2X4's, a piece of foam batting and a few yards of coordinating fabric that matched the bedding, I had a window seat that completed the room perfectly (and cost effectively)!
