I cannot believe how fast this year has come and gone truly! So much has happened we are expecting baby boy #2 and have re-arranged the boys bedrooms already to make sure everyone is as ready as they can be for our growing family. Not only are you going to get a little tour or Rory’s room but you will also see some of the Christmas décor I incorporated this year for him too:) I LOVE the way his room came out. It really fits this stage of his life and he is now always wanting to play and hang out in here which makes us feel good.
The fact that Rory has already moved into his toddler room is so bittersweet but I had so much fun doing it:) Below is the beautiful toddler room that I found on Pinterest that I gained inspiration from. The link will take you to the room another interior designer created. The second I saw it was like an “AHA” moment. I knew that Andy would be able to do the wood work on the walls and that he could get it done fairly quickly. (I am so thankful he can do anything like this around our house with much guidance at all). I wanted to make sure Rory was well adjusted in his new “big boy” toddler room for at least two months before the new baby arrived.
I asked Andy to weigh on the difficulty level of this project and he was on a scale of 1-10 it was a 7. The main challenge is making sure that you measure the whole wall in it’s entirety twice to make sure that the squares you are making are equal to each other otherwise they will not all look even. Here is a visual again of the woodwork:
Here is Rory’s design board for his room and all of the sources for you to reference. I absolutely love the area rug in here by Loloi. It is beyond comfortable and perfectly durable for a toddler room.
The inspiration behind the décor in Rory’s nursery was to really lean into the many different things he is interested in at the moment without going overboard on the theme throughout. He loves airplanes, firetrucks, trains etc. I love the wooden shelf ledge that Andy added to to display different artwork and other favorite things of Rory’s. It is easy to interchange the different pieces we have up here at any point.
The paint color in this room is front porch by Sherman Williams. It was already the color we had in this room and we really liked the way it looked plus I am sure in a few years Rory is going to want to change his room color to what he loves so I wanted to wait to change it.
