It's The Little Things - Noah's Big Boy Room (Design Board)

Now that we've closed on our house, we are busy having the house painted.  While the painters are busy, we will be moving a bunch of our stuff that we had stored at our parents' houses.  Once we officially move in, there are a few rooms that should be able to be completed quickly.  Noah's  nursery will be pretty much the same as it was in our apartment.  The dining room is getting all new furniture delivered, so that should be pretty simple.  The kitchen will require a lot of organization, but not many design choices.  

One room that I am having fun designing from the very beginning, is Noah's big boy room.  I really want Noah to love our new house right away. I hope that by making a room just for him filled with things he loves, that he will feel more comfortable in the beginning.  Noah always ends up in our bed, so I thought it would be a good idea to set up a room for him with a real bed in it.  We are going to put a full bed in the room, so this way I can just go in there with him when he wakes up in the middle of the night.  I want to really toddler proof this room so that he is safe in it even when alone.  We are painting the walls a light gray, a nice neutral shade that should still work if/when we change the decor down the road.  Noah loves red, so there will be a fair amount of in the room, and I will offset it with some royal blue as well.

Chris bought this license plate map print years ago, and I think it will look perfect in Noah's room.  From there I decided to go with a "transportation/travel" theme.  We got him sheets with cars, trucks, and planes on it and I found these prints of different cities from Ikea.  I also love the idea of painting the Ikea spice racks and use them as shelving for books.  I want to hang them low so that Noah is able to grab his books himself.  One thing I'm still unsure about is his hamper (choice 1 & choice 2)... I would love your input!


  1. Ahhh, designing rooms is so much fun, isn't it?! I love the license plate map! The dresser is super cute too! As far as hampers...I like #1. Can't wait to see how it all turns out! Thanks for linking up with us :-)

  2. So cute!! Love the sheets and hamper #1! ;)

  3. Oh, it looks like it will be such a fun room! I'm sure he will love it. It's always fun to dream up room ideas and decorations for a bedroom -especially one for your little. Can't wait to see it all finished and put together!

  4. Love it! I can't wait to see it come together.

  5. Oh my gosh. Somehow I missed this last week and finally caught up with it! I LOVE the book shelf idea. We just hung some shelves on Mason's wall (that I need to share soon!) and I LOVE the look of it. It's also so accessible for Mason to get his books (which he often throws all over the floor lol). I also really like the sheets and the city pictures!
    I like hamper #1!
