    As a follow up, what would you do to adapt this room for an older pre-teen boy? I love the feel of this room.

    Hi Kate, I have a very, very similar dresser in my son's room that was found at Salvation Army and I too painted it Kensington Blue. Needless to say, I love it! :-) Great room!

    Your room is no neat and organized. I love your idea of storage. I think if you put a picture light above the photo, the bedroom will be more bright and special.

KMSalter Design added this to How to Decorate a Nursery to Grow With Your BabyMay 26, 2015

This nursery is the perfect blend of baby and adult thanks to its coloring. The strong red and blue, mixed with a white neutral, establishes a space that can last into the tween years.

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to A Place of His Own: Boy's First BedroomOct 24, 2013

Once you learn your new baby will be a girl or a boy, preparations of all kinds ensue. I still vividly remember that moment for us more than 35 years ago. We were into chocolate and creams and reds back then, so that was the design direction Matia’s dad’s nursery took. These parents chose a captivating nautical theme, which is greatly enhanced by the deep blue wall. Painting the dresser the same color as the wall was a stroke of genius in this nursery.

11. Use clothes as accessories. Hang hooks on the walls and display cute baby outfits. Open shelves and hooks make clothes and hats easy to access.

Cathy Lara added this to 17 Ways to Cozy Up Your Home for FallOct 4, 2012

An outerwear display. When you've readied your home for fall, your beach gear will be stored away, leaving hooks, hangers and shelves with room for boots and coats. The winter clothes offer a visual cue the season has changed (without your spending a dime on seasonal decor).

Rachel Grace added this to The Single Crib Style That's Ideal for Any NurseryAug 21, 2012

Thanks to its simple design, Jenny Lind furniture is easy to pair with vibrant patterns. The white crib, chain-link rug and whimsical Roman shade fabric in this nursery prove just that.

9. Scour the toy basket. You never really know what you're going to find at the bottom of the toy basket — but it's really important that you find out. Wipe the inside and outside of your child's toy containers according to their material and vacuum for added measure. Clean plastic toys and board games with disinfecting wipes. Disinfect plush toys by running them through a gentle wash or freezing them overnight. (Germs don't survive in the freezer.)When it comes to purging the toy basket, Tsh Oxenreider (pronounced "Tish") from Simple Mom recommends the following steps: "Sort through the toys with your children, toss out any broken toys or ones with missing parts and select the ones they've outgrown — those are all the ones going into your donate box. I find that the fewer toys my kids have, the more they play with them."

Kelly Porter added this to 10 Great Boy's Nursery IdeasAug 11, 2011

As your beautiful baby boy grows older, you'll have challenges keeping him organized. So, why not start with great storage now? Cubbies, hooks and baskets can be an early lesson in organization.
