Creating a Beautiful, Bright Boy’s Room (via A Thoughtful Place)

After sharing peeks into her young son’s “big boy” room, my good friend Courtney (A Thoughtful Place) recently revealed the whole room:)  I am such a fan of how she pulled the room together and adore her color combination and personal touches.  You can see more photos of the room and read about the handmade projects on her blog here.
Isn’t her son absolutely adorable enjoying his reading nook?


The toy closet is genius!

 A fun, interesting and personal gallery wall.
Our son is barely two and has never crawled out of his crib, so we’re in no hurry to get him in a “big boy” bed, but this room sure is inspiring me for the future!  AWESOME job Court!  I’m sure G loves it!
*And I also wanted to mention that Courtney is a contributor to the online decor and lifestyle magazine, House of Fifty, and their latest issue is out today.  Go HERE to read it:)

    So gorgeous! Too bad I have a boy and a girl sharing the same room. That limits me a lot as far as decorating goes. I would love if you could share some ideas for shared bedrooms!!

    She did such an awesome job! I have definitely filed this room away for some inspiration in the future. I love, love, love that cute green dresser!

    Great room! I love the color scheme. 🙂 I think I am waaay behind on my House of Fifty Reading. I have the best intentions, and then I have to close out the screen and I forget to go back and read. :s

    I am currently looking for an inspiration for my little boy's nursery who is coming when I give birth to him this April. 😀 And this room by Courtney is perfect! 😀

    What a cheerful room to grow up in! The colors and patterns really make the space but it will be no trouble to change up when her little guy gets older. Love the repurposed dresser and dressing up the bed with new hardware. Beautifully done!

    Courtney did a beautiful job! Great color combination and I love the stripes and polka dots together. She is so talented. I think my favorite part of the room is the tree and the special meaning it holds. Getting ready to download HOF on my iPad now!

    OMG I love this but I thought it was for a tween girl's room! HAHA! The tree/birds is SO feminine! Looks like a girl room in some pics. Love the toy closet, though.

    I've been obsessing over the wide navy and white stripes in the toy closet. I had pinned something similar a few months ago.

    My 2.5 year old boy is still happy in his crib, so I'm happy to leave him there:) But we do have a similar color scheme: navy and blue with pops of lime and white.

    I love the colors she used for his room. They really make the space seem large. My favorite piece of artwork in the room is the one that says "Share your toys, by order of the management". Too cute!

    Love the color scheme! We are doing something similar in my littlest guys room! The gallery wall is my favorite!

    I love the colors and how the room looks styled, yet still livable. Really cute and youthful. I wish it were my sons room!

    Yeah mother knows best. and being a good mother you cannot afford seeing your son's bedroom in great mess! i can say she has a creativity. I'm sure she is happy seeing her son happy and comfortable with the room design. i will take time to bookmark your blog for ease of access.

    Courtney is so fabulous! I always smile when I see her spaces. She really has a great design eye.
