toddler room: rustic wilderness

Nursery Inspiration Board; Toddler Inspiration Board; Baby Boy Nursery Inspiration

Cathryn (check out her fab blog here) emailed asking for recommendations as she transitions her little one to a toddler room.  She sent me a picture of the lumberjack plaid pillow from etsy, and said they are also using a Hudson Bay blanket for inspiration.  Above are my suggestions, including a large chalkboard and a fuzzy faux sheepskin rug for a cuddly play space, as well as a wooden chest to store little boy treasures.

    This is great! We are actually in the process of redoing my 2-year-old’s room into an outdoorsy, campy motif and have the same Hudson Bay blanket! That moose poster would look awesome in his room. You have such wonderful ideas!

    This all looks great, I just ordered a two foot letter for my playroom re-do at Grandinroad for $69 and they are also out of metal. You might like to take a look at them, they are new!!

    I LOVE THIS! I want to collect all these things and use them in my toddler’s room- however I’m curious about the fact that my son’s room’s walls are chocolate brown and white- do you think this could still work??? What details could you add to tie that in??? Can you help me?

    • Joni says:

      Hi there!  I think it would totally work with chocolate brown and white.  Maybe just try to look for more brown accents, rather than the black (although I think it’s totally fine to put them together).  Here are a couple of brown rugs that would also work great (if you need a rug): http://www.dashandalbert.com/product/view/morgan-chocolate-woven-wool-rug–RDA172  or http://www.dashandalbert.com/product/view/side-bar-black-indoor-outdoor-rug–RDB169.  Hope that helps!!

      That’s a great rug!!! A bit on the expensive side but I’m going to look around for something similar. Thank you so much for your reply. I have a bunch of dark brown handpuppets from Folkmanis – with lifelike bears and porcupines and burrowing owls- so I’ll make a dark brown puppet theatre to go with it.. now to find the right fabric for the theatre curtains- maybe matching ones to window curtains… do you have a suggestion for that?
