the boy cave




The room:













The boys room really turned out exactly as I had pictured it in my head.  Bradley's nursery was very light and calming.  But now that I have two boys, I wanted to make the room a lot more masculine.  I fell in LOVE with the Ikat print, green geo print, and of course navy and white stripes, and had to incorporate them all.  The bunting and the quilt really pull all the fabrics together since they combine them all.  I wanted to keep the aqua wall since I am still in love with the color.  I got the navy minky for the back side of the quilt from the fabric district in LA, and used the tiny piece that was left over from it to create the cover for the changing pad. 

It's a perfect room for these two little loves...
