Cityscape Big Boy Room


A toddler's room that is timeless in a small space for a big imagination.

Design Inspiration

I wanted to do a transportation themed room, but found this amazing bedding and awesome plane decals and it all came together.  Jake loves laying in bed and looking at his planes flying above him.

Decorating Style

I would best describe by decorating style as simple and modern. I wanted furniture in my son's room that would last and a theme that he would not outgrow in a year or two. The dark gray walls are from his nursery and I just love them, so I was so happy I was able to keep the color for his new room.

Project Details

The bedding came from Dwell and the plane wall mural is from weeDECOR (  The furniture is from Room and Board - if we were ever going to change his furniture, this furniture would easily transition to a grown up space.  The bedside table is from Ikea - we painted it a custom paint color to match the blue in the bedding.

Favorite Items

The bedding is the center piece of the room and the plane wall mural really pulls it together.  I also love the globe with the airplane and the city map of Oakland - both of these pieces picked up at a local boutique.  The magnet boards are from Ikea - I love that we can change up family pics and artwork and add some personal touches to his room.  The banner above his window I had made for 2nd bday party - I thought it added a nice pop of color to a bland space.


Keep items simple, especially in a small space. The white ground in the bedding and the lighter furniture really keeps the room feel airy, even with the dark walls.

Cool room. I like the exact shade of gray you used for the walls. I think the airplanes-helis-and-clouds wall stick-ons are cute, but I kinda feel they look rather awkward the way you positioned them and occupying only that particular area on the wall, leaving a lot of space blank and bare.

This room really fits a little big boy! I particularly love the globe with airplane, the plane decals and the bedding. So simple and modern. This is the kind of room any boy could grow into.
