Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails....

9.23.2010

That's what little boys are made of!
I am completely smitten with my little Collins (as if you didn't already know that). Little boys are just so sweet and I find myself daydreaming about a house full of them!
.
I had such a great time designing the gender neutral nursery... and love everything that I selected. I am pretty sure I will not change a thing the next time around. But I do find myself thinking (and planning in my head) Collins' next room. I was looking around Serena and Lily and found so many things that I like.
.
While I don't want a 'theme'.... I love the idea of using fish or dogs in the decor. Both are so boyish and cute.... and can be used tastefully. These were two of my favorite images from the S&L catalog:


While I do not know which direction I will go (yes, I have plenty of time).... I had fun looking around at some options. Here are some other great things from their site that would be adorable in a little boy's room:

I am loving this post! My "little" boy is now 10 yrs. old and I can't believe how fast it went by. I have now shifted from your pics to more men's suiting fabrics like herring bone and flannel with nailheads, etc. for his space. Enjoy it - it's fleeting!

I love that second image, something that he can grow into. I need to get started on my plan for the boys rooms in the next home too...so many things to do. I am SO excited to see what you come up with. xo

Love all of this! And, Collins is adorable! Thanks for sharing. I think I'm going to have to get one of those letter pillows for Jack's big boy room!

Love the room with the striped duvet! Collins is soooo sweet!

Ahh your little boy is so sweet! I have a 6 month old boy and find myself too already planning his big boy room! I love Serena and Lily. I am also anti theme but think the dog and/or fish idea is cute!

I'm such a fan of Serena and Lily and love their ideas for boy rooms. You're little boy is so darling. My last boy is just growing up way to fast! I wish I could freeze him...

Auntie Bliss said...

Oh your little boy is cute! I have three of them :) (thought I wanted a girl, but Nope :)
I could decorate kids rooms till the cows come home.

Julie Holloway said...

I know! That catalog is so beautiful! Those pendants are probably my favorite....can't you see them over a kitchen island? And those initial pillows. The best.

He is so adorable.

I'm from an all-girl family.... and I had a daughter. I couldn't imagine being the grandma to a little boy, but it's more fun than I ever could have imagined. He is fabulous... And, your little guy is soooo darn cute.

Warm blessings,
Spencer
