I wanted to do a retro-inspired room for my little guy. I have designed 2 great rooms for my daughters and loved doing those. I wanted his space to be fun and energetic.
My design inspiration is a cool, neutral shell with punches of color! His feature wall was my starting point--the contact paper circles on the wall are from a previous posting on Project Nursery--the rest was all me.
My decorating style is modern, neutral tones with pops of color.

I always believe in creating a room in stages. How can you possibly know exactly what it will look like at the beginning? I think great style evolves with the project. Don't be rushed.
