Wanna take a little tour?

A friend of mine has the cutest little boy... who has the cutest room!  When they moved into a new house a little while ago I got to help out with a few of the details in this room-- so fun.  My friend happens to be an awesome photographer and snapped a few pictures of her son's room for me to share!

(my friend is not only great when it comes to photography-- but she's pretty crafty too-- check out that mobile she made-- isn't it so awesome?)

I offered my sewing assistance and used my tutorial on how to make your own fitted crib sheet to make up two different sheets in some fantastic fabric my friend purchased.  Loving the preppy prints!



The bedroom has a really fun layout-- there's a little nook off to one side that is just the right size for the crib.  My friend found these dark navy drapes at Ikea and put them up on the window (great for blocking out light during sleeping hours) and I suggested picking up a second pair to separate the space from the rest of the room.  It turns the area into a cozy tent-like sleeping space-- I love it!  I also thought the moravian star light I used in my bedroom would be perfect above the crib-- and it is!


A view of the other side of the room... loving the fun details...


I'm always a fan of keeping crib bedding simple-- instead of using crib skirts, bumper pads, and all the other "stuff"-- I like the way a fun and interesting crib sheet looks on its own.


Hope you enjoyed this little room tour!

Oh, how adorable! Those fitted sheets are perfect - great colors and patterns. I like how unique everything in the room is. That wall art with the song lyrics is my fav! My grandma used to sing that to us as we fell asleep.

I love it - so simple and sweet. And his name is also great. I almost named my first child Paxton but he looked more like an Elliott. Nice job on the crib sheets!
