Rowan’s Lil Man Cave


I wanted to create a room that didnt look like a baby's room. My husband rides motorcycles and off road vehicles so I also wanted to incorporate his interests in the room as well. My first decision was the fabric for the bedding, grey and white chevron and orange. I love the grey wall color in nurseries so the wall color was decided long before we found out what we were having.

I had a lot of fun decorating this room and searching for the perfect pieces.

Design Inspiration

I got most of my inspiration room ProjectNursery, Pinterest, Etsy & Polkatotdesigns websites.

It took me all 9 months to create  this room on a budget. I picked up things here and there and bought things second hand too. I liked so many different styles of boys nurseries but in the end I went with my first love, chevrons!!

I think that the wall color is too dark for a nursery, which is why it is great that you have all those touches of bright colors there to balance it out
