Riley's Big Boy Room

I haven't had much experience decorating boys rooms - admittedly, girls rooms are easier for me.  But I really had a lot of fun with this, and it actually wasn't that difficult!

I hope my friend likes the fun modern car stuff I've chosen for her little guy, Riley.

 A quick explanation:

Bedding is the centrepiece for this room.  It is from Dwell Studio.  They have this awesome matching grey wallpaper that would go so great, but you don't want to overdo it.

The fabric sample to the right of the bedding is called Day Dream, and I thought it would look great if it was used for some throw or floor pillows.

The rug below the bedding is from CSN Stores.

I love the idea of grey being the main neutral, so the grey curtains I've chosen are from Ikea, and the bean bag chair is pale gray. It could also be a dark grey and would really tie the room together.

Carrying on the grey theme, the 1, 2, 3 bins and the shadow box frame are from Restoration Hardware.  They lend a bit of a vintage/industrial feel to the room, so it's not overly modern.  The scooter is also from Restoration Hardware and more of a decorative piece than an actual toy as Riley is only a toddler!

Finally, the art is from Oodles of Color on Etsy - and the colors are totally customizable!  Perfect!!
