This is the amazing little guy who inspired this post today!
He’s just like his daddy in the sense that he is always “in character.” He is absolutely in love with Batman! And I am absolutely in love with him
I want to make his room special, and do something he loves! Knowing how fast and how often his “favorite things” may change, I also want something versatile and something that we can update by changing out accessories rather than starting from scratch.
I was inspired by the Pottery Barn Kids Quilt Collections (seriously, did they market specifically to me by naming collections after both my kids??) Unfortunately, the price tag on these quilts is higher than I want to spend. So I set out to make quilts of my own. The PB Quilt in the mood board below is what inspired me, and here is a sneak peak at my version. I have the top pieced together, now it just needs to be quilted and finished with binding!!
It is made from super soft flannel and the dark navy pieces are Chenille
Here is a collection of some ideas I have for the finished room:
1. Espresso Storage Cube~I have a storage cube similar to this one I found at Costco, so this is already a staple in the room
2. Amy Gourd Glass Navy Lamp~I think I can find a lamp similar to this that I can refurbish/paint. I plan to applique a batman symbol onto charcoal colored fabric and recover the lampshade. 7th House on the left has a great tutorial for re-covering lampshades on their blog.
3. Rio Navy Blue Faux Silk Ready Made Ring Top Curtains ~This is another project I think I could DIY!!
4. Pottery Barn Kids Quilt ~I absolutely love the collections from Pottery Barn Kids. They have a great website and you can browse by product or by room. Plenty of inspiration for both boys and girls.
5. Keep Calm and Call Batman Sign ~Found on this Etsy shop~ I love this!
6. Batman Sheets ~The best part about these sheets is they add a fun element to the room that is easily changed out. I am making the same quilt for my younger son, and his room will be inspired by Disney’s Cars. Imagine all the possibilities with this color palette. Spiderman, Batman, Cars, Nautical theme, Thomas the train, Toy Story, the possibilities are endless!! They will also be able to grow into more neutral rooms over time.
7. Batman Clock ~A nightlight that projects the bat symbol onto the ceiling is the icing on the cake!!
Hope you enjoyed, would love to hear your thoughts and I cannot wait to reveal the finished room!!
