Snips and Snails...

So, this is what I have been working on lately...my son's room. Trip is an adorable, naughty little fella. Into the usual 3 yr old boy shenanigans. And recently his ViVi (code for "Grandma") has bought him some new big boy bunk beds, which of course calls for redecorating the whole room. We have had the blue scheme for some time now and I thought it would be nice to mix it up and give him a fresh new "big boy" look.
This "Best Friends" print is going to be the cushion cover on a generously sized antique wicker chair that has been holed up in my garage. (Yes, you're finally gettin' out! Mr. Steel Mags will be so excited!) The colors are chocolate and linen. If you've read my past posts, you'll know that Jack (that was his given name and I felt I could not possibly change it since he was probably suffering from identity issues as it was), our rescued Golden, plays an important part in our lives. This room is sort of an homage to their brotherly relationship.

And this yellow "Cadence" print is going to be a euro sham for the top and bottom bunk, making it comfortable for reading, which we do a TON of! Both of these fabrics, btw, came from here. Premier Prints has been seen lately on Decorno and Pink Wallpaper. What a great resource! Super cute and super affordable!

I am just using simple navy down comforters for the bedding with white sheets. His dresser is sort of a distressed ivory and we are going to stripe it vertically with an undecided shade of yellow. And I'm thinking this would be cute for some art work...a vintage poster with great color. From here.

And since we took down his ceiling fan for safety reasons, he is demanding a replacement. It gets really hot here ya'll! This is the best I could find w/o deviating from my look too much. From here.

So, what do you think? Cute or what? What do your kids' rooms look like? I'm always interested in kids' room because I think they can be hard to do without getting either too cheesy or too theme-y.
