My sweet boy, Daniel, is three and a half and recently became a big brother! As we were decorating the baby's nursery, we decided to update his nursery to make it a big boy room....and included him in *some* of the decisions. His pool blue + lime green nursery was featured on Project Nursery three years ago - it was a preppy, fun room centered around my love of graphic patterns - so I thought it would be fun to share the "big boy" update!
We left the shell of the room the same - the fabulous Thibaut wallpaper feature wall, blue walls, striped rug. When he outgrew his crib/toddler bed and it moved into his baby brother's nursery, we replaced it with a twin size bed from Pottery Barn Kids. I purposely decided to order both boys furniture from Pottery Barn Kids all in the same finish (white), so that the pieces could be swapped out between them in the future, or even placed in the same room as they get older.
Like most three year old little boys, Daniel has a love for all things CARS! So when he got to weigh in on his decor update, he wanted cars, cars and more cars. I decided to oblige and we infused cars into a few key places: the oversized print over his bed, the artwork over his dresser, and we added a little table corner for playing games and added two ledge shelves to house a few of his matchbox cars to play with up there.
