Ever since I brought home a "Yellow Submarine" storybook my son has been OBSESSED!! From going to Amoeba and buying every book, mug and record; to watching the movie 5 times a day; to listening to him sing along to "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"; to throwing him a "Yellow Submarine" pizza party; he's had The Beatles on the brain and now he's asked to learn to play the trumpet!
When we were ready to convert his toddler room to a "big boy" room, it was a no-brainer what theme we would go with. We wanted to make sure that if we were going to pay homage to The Beatles that we did it right, but we also wanted to make sure the room had a California vibe to it. We scoured Etsy and Ebay with him for days picking out and bidding on posters, bedding and memorabilia. It was super fun to include him and he was so into it. We couldn't be happier with how cool his room turned out!
We kept some of his original furniture but purchased a yellow "submarine" bed and end tables from the Jenny Lind collection, and a yellow floor lamp from the Land of Nod. We wanted to give him a corner for drawing and reading that had a kind of a pillow den feeling to it worthy of The Beatles, so we purchased floor pillows from Salvage Maria and posters from Ebay and Amoeba. On his bookcase we collected memorabilia from Ebay and Amazon. The Sergeant Pepper figurines in his bookcase were the fondant cake toppers (DS Custom Toppers- Etsy) from his birthday party that we shellacked. We kept his old zebra rug from Jonathan Adler and added a sheepskin rug and a kid’s wire purple chair, both from wayfair.com. The drawings above his bed were custom made by Art Duritos.
