Ky's nursery was Safari-themed and I really, really loved it. I had so much fun picking out all the decor, the artwork, the cute little touches here and there. With that said, originally, I wanted to do a baseball-themed Big Boy room. The selfish reason for that was because I had about a bajillion leftover baseball-themed things from his first birthday party. But since, he's older now and has a teeny tiny (rather large, actually) personality, I wanted to do something he really loved and was excited about. When we started planning the room, he was OBSESSED with outer space, the planets, galaxies, etc... so it seemed like the perfect theme. Now, of course, he's into dinosaurs. Go figure.
I had so much fun with this room. I wanted it to be bright and fun but still little boyish. I didn't want sophisticated outer space... I wanted cute kid outer space. Orange and green were two of the main colors in his nursery so I kept those colors consistent in order to recycle some things from room to room and also because to me, they are perfect little boy colors. The other colors I brought in were red, navy and gray.
So without further ado, I present... Ky's Outer Space Big Boy Room!
I thought Chevron curtains would work really well in here... the kind of go with the theme but also are just a fun print for a kid's room.
I designed all the prints in the room myself except for the planets print above the dresser.
Ky, poor dude, has the smallest room in the house. It tends to get cluttered easily so I wanted everything to stay neat and organized and loved these little buckets to put random small toys in... he loves them, too!
Books are in a basket under this little sidetable (he had the side table in his nursery, too) and more books are on the makeshift book shelves on the wall... secret: they are actually spice racks! We painted them the same blue color as the accent wall.
Yes, I know I need a light switch plate!
And what would an outer space room be without "planets"?! :) These are just paper lanterns we hung from the ceiling with clear fishing wire and clear thumbtacks. Ky thinks the red one is ACTUALLY Jupiter ;)
