Declan's Treasures of Travel Bedroom

Declan's Treasures of Travel Bedroom

Name: Declan (1.5 years)
Location: San Diego, California

Since before Declan was born I had collected gifts from traveling family members. I really wanted to incorporate them into his room and make the theme a mix of worldly and eclectic with an organic feel to it. I know it's a lot to throw in the mix, but overall I think I achieved that.

Since there is a lot of color in his souvenirs/books/toys, I kept the furniture and bed linens neutral. The one challenge I had was the overly colorful circus tent from IKEA. He loves it so much, but I hated the colors; so I simply covered it with muslin material. It was such a simple fix and I love how it blends in now.

My favorite piece in his room (okay, two) is the coffee sack with the soccer ball and his alpaca rug from Peru. I hope to keep adding treasures from travels and that he keeps loving his room as much as he does now.
