Dear House on the Mill

His Cool Room

Our son is now almost 18 months but I still love everything about his room.  It was a fun adventure incorporating my husband's love for racing into the cute nursery I envisioned.   We also wanted a room that would grow with him and we wouldn't have to change much as he gets older.  I think it's the perfect blend!

Teal (of course) and grey walls provide color but also anchor the room.  My husband spent over an hour picking out the perfect shades of paint so that they would match his favorite Formula 1 race team...haha

I love how involved he was in this entire process - picking out the wall art, fabrics, paint colors, you name it!  He occasionally had to be reminded that this room would belong to our newborn son and not him but overall he was so helpful! 

The details in the room are what I love most - race cars on the drawer knobs, colorful wall art, the speedometer decal above his changing station, and of course the custom pillows and bedding we had made from a wonderful lady (Studio Slumber on Etsy if you are in need of anything for your nursery)!

Our son has a place to read, play with his toy cars, run around, and just have fun.  I wouldn't change anything about this space.  It was the work of a husband and a wife who wanted to create a space just for their son.

As always, thank you for reading!  And, I've updated the blog a little to allow comments - so feel free to leave a few words :)
