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

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!
