Little Boy Room

Having three boys in under three years has meant that we have been immersed in baby boys for the past 5 1/2 years.  We've been swimming in diapers, given over 4,300 baths, fed over 5,000 bottles and read Goodnight Moon at least two thousand times.  We made it through, oftentimes bleary eyed, by putting one foot in front of the other.  Then all of a sudden we looked up and our 'baby' was a 'kid.'

This "baby" is a spunky little guy.  When I was pregnant with him and watched the close bond the older two had I worried he would be left out.  Now I know that is impossible.  His big personality would never let that happen.  He's a 2 year old that thinks he's a 5 year old.  He squeezed himself tight into that boy pack and those three are now thick as thieves.  They are so lucky to have each other.  I am so lucky to have them. 

He is 2 1/2 and while he has no interest in leaving his big boy bed behind just yet (nor do I) I thought I'd give his room some thought in anticipation of the transition.  I'm going for a look that will grow with him.  Neutral walls, classic bedding and nothing too 'cute.'  Here are some rooms I love.

What's not to love here?  The woodwork, the lighting, the color scheme, the lighting.  The table in between the beds is just asking to be a diving board though.

The headboard, the lighting.

I thought about them sharing a room for about 5 minutes.  Then I realized that would be complete insanity and their constant puppy piles would extend into the late nights and early mornings.  No thank you.  Moving on.  Like the style though.

I'd like to incorporate a map somehow in the room.  I like the interesting placement in this one.
