It's hard to think of travel when you have such a beautiful room at home! Mindy shares her son's attractive space: Carter (age 3) has a fascination with globes, he loves to look at them and ask where places are. Like any boy he loves cars, trains and other colorful things. We wanted to create a colorful space for him to live and play without being too "theme-y". We wanted to make sure the space would grow with him.

We built the board and batten wainscot all around the room, chose a nice shade of bold turquoise and found bedding and accessories that used coordinating colors to pull it all together. We used his own art work and a photo I took of a fun yellow bus to bring in bright colors and a favorite old teddy bear that belonged to his daddy as a boy to personalize the room.

He loves his new big boy room! It's a fun, colorful place to imagine and play!

Thanks Mindy! Readers, see how Mindy is transforming her house at Our Humble Abode.
