Name: Ky (2.5)
Location: Fairfax, Virginia
My son Ky was going through a HUGE planets and outer space phase when we began planning his "Big Boy" room, so I thought it would make a perfect theme. I wanted to transition a lot of elements from his safari-themed nursery which used the colors orange and lime green, so I kept those elements and added rich navy, gray and red to the party.
As for inspiration, I pretty much just used the colors as a palette and went with it. I designed most of the prints myself and searched high and low for specific pieces that fit the theme/color but didn't go overboard or weren't too grown up. My favorite element is the framed photo of him in a NASA suit from when he was younger. My goal was to keep it personal and playful but also simple since his room is small and tends to clutter easily. I wanted it to be bright, bold, and a really fun space that he would enjoy sleeping and playing in!
