Toddler Boy Rooms

Can anyone share idea's with me for a toddler's boy room.  I was thinking of a few ideas and now I am wondering if I should not go with something so specific.  I was thinking a Dr. Seuss room but not sure if he/I would grow tired of it in a few years.  I also love the little green leaf canopies that IKEA sells so I would love to incorporate that some how.  Any idea help would be great!

    I am currently in love with the Very Hungry Caterpillar line from PBK. The green leaf could easily be tied into that theme.

  • I love the Dr. Seuss idea.  I don't think he will outgrow it.  My oldest son is almost 7 and Dr. Seuss books are his favorite.

    My older guy is into trains so when it was time to move him into his big boy room we did a train theme.   I avoided Thomas and did train accents.   His sheets are trains.   The wall art is vintage-looking train prints.   Plus i have some cutesy train canvas art that I found at Target and Home Goods.   I also hung train postcards.

  • DS has the trandportation quilt from Land of Nod. I like it since it is not character based.

  • DS is big into vehicles & trains but like you I didn't really want me/him to be married to some 'theme' for a long time so I got some vehicle decals and put them up on one wall but then have 3 large frames that I plan to put some 8x10 photos or prints of his choice in on another wall and I figure they are easy to change out- can be photos of him/us, can be dinosaurs, trains, whatever he is into at the time... and I am going to just get a navy/red madras comforter for his bed b/c the colors will be easy to work with for whatever we put up for awhile. 

    I'm not big on themes though, I did DD's room with some butterflies on one wall & a 'garden' on another and then she asked for 'jungle animals' so on the blank wall I'm going to hang some framed photos from my mom's trip to Africa. 

  • We are using these sheets from PBK (Patrick) with just a basic navy comforter. Plan to do a transportation theme with accessories.

    Where are you getting the madras bedding?

  • Probably PBK, they have a bunch of differnet color combos (I plan to do navy/red). He has a full sized bed though, I'm not talking about a toddler bed.(it also comes in twin). I figure that bedding is definitely something he can grow with and we can decorate around so I don't mind paying $124 (it is on sale right now).

    I believe Land of Nod & the Company Store also had some but I think PBK's price was better (for full) and I liked the pattern better. I'll prob just get some navy sheets.

  • My DS loves cars and trucks, so I got CIRCO decor and bedding from Target.
