My Room: Blaise

Port Coquitlam, British Columbia

Yellow and grey are two of our favorite colors and together here they are a match made in heaven (not to mention the cool pops of red). Sherri tells us about her son's terrific room: When I found out we were having a boy the first thought that popped into my mind was, "How on earth can I decorate a baby boy's room?" I had had a lot of fun decorating my daughter's room - I found it so easy to just go crazy with colour, texture and patterns, but with a boy I wasn't quite sure what to do.

While I was pregnant with Blaise, I had been watching a lot of Mad Men. I was definitely influenced by the mid-century furniture and decor on the show. I am in love with the Eames rocker my husband bought for me when I was pregnant with Blaise. It was great for nursing in and rocking my baby to sleep. Doesn't hurt that it also looks great.

I have always loved the grey and yellow colour combination and having a boy's room to decorate was the perfect excuse to use it. I didn't want to go with traditional blue, I wanted to go with something classic, modern and yet still baby friendly. The red cushions, rug and lamp (all from Ikea) is a great complimentary colour and gives the room a little extra oomph! Blaise's room is bright and cheerful without being overly child-like.

The vintage airplanes were a Christmas gift from his aunty. The poster above his crib was purchased from Penny People via Etsy.

I am such a HUGE fan of Ohdeedoh and Apartment Therapy. Most of the decorating inspiration for my home has come from your sites. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Thanks Sherri, we absolutely do! Readers, check out Sherri's blog So Much To Love.
