Since Big Roo loves green and we all love the outdoors, I figured it was only logical to do an outdoor kids room for him. There was just one problem.
Most outdoorsy rooms I’ve seen for kids just really didn’t suit our style.
I’m not into red and brown flannel, mallard ducks and army green for a little kids’ room. I wanted something bright, modern and just all around cool.
Well, piece by piece we worked on Big Roo’s room and I finally have it to a place I’m ready to share with the world.
Everything we picked out for the room was selected to match the Owl bedding from Dwell Studio. I’ve become a bit of an owl freak as of late but, wait, this isn’t about me right? Well, luckily this bedding was met with Big Roo’s enthusiastic approval… mainly because it had green on it!
We actually bought the awesome kids’ table from Inai Inai Ba almost two years ago when they were in their infancy (more on them tomorrow). Big Roo loves to color and play with his cars on that table. And knock the chairs down to jump over them. Boys.
The low profile IKEA dresser is small but perfect kid-height. The cute little wooden animals are from another etsy shop Just Hatched (more on them Thursday). I’m in love with the skunk. Big Roo made the birdhouse at day care. The little white lamp is why we love IKEA (cheap and modern).
The cool outdoor wall decals are from Wee Gallery, who makes killer wall decals among other things. We’ve been a fan of them for years (Big Roo used to have their giraffes in his room but they’ve since been handed down to the bebe).
One of my sisters soaked up all the artist mojo in our family. She came to visit and painted the owl and circle tree (which you’ll see below) to match the bedding. Then my hubby (who is also rather talented) painted the green and brown tree to give a splash of bright green to this side of the room.
Above Big Roo’s bed, we put three pictures from one of his latest hikes (I actually think a larger frame is in order but it’ll do for now). The table is an IKEA favorite (the always-cheap-as-crap Lack table). It’s one of those tables that he could break every two months and we’d still replace it because it costs like $8.
Those alien looking things on the table are actually Oxo Candela nightlights that I bought off eBay. I bought them a while ago and got all giddy when I saw how perfect the colors matched. After scouring etsy for a plush owl, I also scored the cutest owl from the shop plants & animals. I’m SO thrilled that little owl.
Finally, when you walk in, we have a couple of shelves from IKEA. One has a piggy bank on it and the other has an N (no, my kid’s name isn’t Big Roo) and an adorable raccoon from the Just Hatched set. Gee, I puffy heart me some etsy.
I hope you all enjoyed the tour!
Speaking of etsy, come back tomorrow and Thursday for a couple of giveaways from Etsy shops Inai Inai Ba and Just Hatched.
