Beau's Bold Blue Bedroom

Beau's Bold Blue Bedroom

Name: Beau (3 months)
Location: Paris, Texas

I ended up doing a little bit “Where the Wild Things Are,” (our daughter's favorite book when she was younger) and a little bit bohemian. I am in LOVE with the wall color. I went through about five samples before I found one that was dark enough.

The samples made me worry that the room was going to be too dark.. so I started light, but when they were actually up, they were way too light. I ended up going 2 shades darker than my “darkest option!” Main colors were Navy, teal and silver/gray. I wanted a really cool accent wall...and started to go with thick stripes but went for something a little different. I searched for the perfect Birch tree stencil.

My daughter has her name in mismatched letters above her bed. I originally planned on doing the same thing in our son's nursery, but went with something I thought would look more “masculine” and he could use for years to come. I LOVE the huge letters.
