I am beyond excited to finally share with you my boys room. It’s sadly has been a few months in making; because what started out as just being a play room idea, quickly changed into a joint bedroom/ playroom when we moved to NJ. Let me tell you, trying to decorate and make a room look cute in such a small space is hard work. This is just a temporary space until we find something bigger we both love, but for now this is home and I want it to feel that way. Lucky for me, we can decorate the place and put nails in the wall. Hallelujah!
The first few weeks after we moved here, Cayman would start crying every time we pulled into the driveway and would say, “I don’t want to go to New Jersey! I want to go HOME!” It broke my heart, so I wanted to create a space that felt like home. I wasn’t really sure what direction or “theme” I going for, until my best friend Kristen sent me an adorable sign in the mail as a house warming gift for the boys room. It read, “I’ll eat you up, I love you so!” I read the book, Where The Wild Things Are to her kids countless times this last summer, and its my boys personal favorite. I knew then that I wanted their room to be centered around adventure. My kids are as adventurous as they come, so I wanted it to reflect their fun and playful personalities. I chose to do bright colors, and the teepee/ play tent of course as the center of the decor. Don’t even get me started on how much I’m loving this teepee from Ashley Gabby Designs. Its great quality, and the design is probably the cutest I’ve seen for boys. Cayman and Beckham’s favorite place to be is the outdoors, and they absolutely love camping. The first time I set up their tent, Cayman was so excited to go “camping,” in his bedroom!
I hope you all love this fun and playful bedroom I created for my boys as much as I do. Its definitely made this temporary place feel a little more like home. XOXO
