We won't be making this transition for a long time, but recently I have been thinking a lot about how I want to decorate Ryan's "big boy room." Maybe its because I did a gender neutral nursery, I am anxious to give him a little boy room. I have a vision in my mind of what I like, but I can't really find it online. I like the navy blue, white, and a red accent color scheme. I am thinking boats, sailboats, whales, nautical... something like that would fit this color the best. When I search this idea online, I find a lot of create crib bedding and nurseries that are decorated like this, but not much for an older boy.
I want to be able to find some of these links in the future so I will list them here for future reference. These are all for crib bedding, but at least its the right idea.
This is a blog about doing a "Ships Ahoy" bedroom:
Who knows, I'll probably change my mind several times between now and when we actually do the change, but there is no harm in looking around. I think at this point I know more about what I don't want than I do about what I do want. If we go with boats or nautical, I don't want pirates! And I want to try to avoid anything thats too cartoony. I like the idea of old fashion sail boats and a beach house kind of feel. We will see what actually happens.
