We’ve been settled into our house for a little over four months now and the decorating dilemma is still a work in progress. One room that’s complete in the house though is Asher’s little space. Decorating the many rooms he’s had in his life has been such a hobby of mine. You might remember his last room from our old house HERE and I wanted to incorporate many of the same things in his new room here in the South. So here’s his new big boy approved space complete with some of his most favorite things!

The biggest thing I wanted to conquer in this little space of his was adding pops of color. We opted to paint the entire house white, including both boy’s rooms, to give the house a clean and modern feel. With that being said the solid white walls in his space just needed something. I didn’t want to paint them and wanted something that could grow with him through the years and also be easy to remove if he ever wanted to change his room up a bit. After browsing the web, I ran across THIS adhesive peel and stick wallpaper from Walls Need Love and I knew it was just what the space needed. It’s a fun kid inspired city blue print like pattern and it screams Asher Jude! It was crazy easy to get on the wall and I actually managed to get it up, by myself, in two nap time sessions! Go me! Asher loves it and it creates a focal wall in his room that gives the space just the right amount of color and pattern.
Aside from the focal wall, I wanted to add other pops of color throughout the space so I incorporated some fun kicknacks that he’s had for a while. The globe in the space actually belonged to my mom, the firetruck was his great grandpas, I framed an old photo of his dad when he was younger to set on his dresser and the large print above the dresser is actually a print of him and his dad that I snapped a fews ago when we camped Iddylwild, CA. I had my favorite framing company, Framebridge, frame print and frame the photo. It’s hands down one of my favorite photos ever. So many memories come to mind when I look at it.
The furniture in the space is IKEA, except for his little bookshelf. His dad actually made that for him a few years ago and it’s held all of his favorite books perfectly! If you want a solid, durable, kid-friendly furniture line that doesn’t break the bank, IKEA’s TARVA collection is a great one!
I’m hoping with time that we can fill his room with the things that he loves like Minecraft – latest obsession! I love that his space is fresh, clean, fun and all about him!
