I loved changing Mac's nursery into a big boy room that I call "Farm Chic." Navy is one of my favorite colors and I added pops of green in the art, pillows and side table. For a touch of manliness I used my husbands pig mount and deer hooves hooks over the bed.
Long before I decided on colors and fabrics for the room, I found the cow print from Ikea. That set off the idea of doing a sorta of farm theme but still modern.
My decorating style is traditional but I like to add unexpected things. I want my home to feel casual, comfortable and collected with things that I love.

Find something you love and let that be your starting place. I also love painting walls white, especially in kids rooms (that sounds wrong, right?), because it gives you a blank palate to work with. It goes with any color, gender and will grow with your child. For more check out my blog I Love That!
