Big Boy Room for the Big Brother

We have begun a new home improvement project at our house, out of necessity, 14 month old, Jones will be getting a new room by the end of the summer because a new baby is on the way!

I am almost 12 weeks pregnant, due October 16th-ish, and my recent dearth of blog posts has been due to the fact that I have been feeling really crappy lately.  Morning sickness (or in my case, all day/mostly afternoon sickness) has brought me to my knees, quite literally.  I was sick with Jones too, so I expected it, but it is much harder to run around after a toddler in the midst of this!

So, to give you an idea of my inspiration for Jones' new "big boy room," here are some of my recent Pinterest pins:

Totally doing this paint job- we're doing clean white at the top and a teal-ish at the bottom:

My talented husband will be re-creating this wall-mounted fold-down desk with shelves--I love it, and I already have a thrifted wooden chair that I am going to re-paint to go with it!

I am a sucker for a gallery wall, and I especially love this one, and the way the shelving kind of makes this a cozy little reading corner:

Some art for the gallery wall:
LOVE this  modern-cool take on Sesame Street character, Bert, by Symbol Society
The Streets, Number 2, via here

My mantra, exactly:

You may remember my obsession with foxes...well it persists:

James and I already purchased a set of unfinished pine bunk beds for Jones' new room, and I really want to find some vintage patchwork quilts to use as comforters for the beds:

I love old maps and globes...

So, that's the inspiration so's slowly coming together, and I'll share pictures with you as we go.
Happy weekend everyone!

Just saw these trailers on two different blogs (Cup of Jo and Rikshaw Design) and had to share.  Can't wait to see them both.
