Dreams of a lovely little girl's room filled with soft creams, pinks and turquoises and Eloise inspired items flew right out the Health Imaging Services window the second the ultrasound tech passed over this little guy's privates and he flashed 'deetel-eet' for all the world (well, just the few of us in the room) to see. What's a 'deetel-eet' you say? Well, that's grown up talk for 'wiener'.
A few weeks ago I started putting together a mood board for a boy's room. I am not claiming to be good at this... AT ALL. I've always dreaded making a mood board cuz honestly, I just can't ever seem to pull a room together and have it look cohesive. And if I ever did, it was by complete and total accident.
Here's what I narrowed the design down to...
Colors: Greige walls, charcoal greys, whites and neutrals with pops of turquoise and a teeny bit-o-burnt orange.
Decor/Theme: I hate to say I have a 'theme' because once you do, people tend to overload you with a million butterfly/sports/car/frog/polka dot/rainbow type items. I'd rather keep it eclectic and non-specific. So, I guess you could say my 'theme' is a mix of typography (numbers and letters), handmade mobiles and an assortment of animals. I'll call my theme "TyMoMal"
Here are the numbered items from the mood board:
1. Twine mobile
3. Paper mobile
4. Cardboard Safari elephant trophy
5. Various prints found on Pinterest
6. Ikea Edland dresser or similar secondhand dresser to use for storage and changing table
7. Black dog, polar bear, and fox prints via Native Vermont's etsy shop
And the breakdown:

3. All three of these prints are from an Etsy shop called Native Vermont.
I like this rug is from West Elm.... but I ain't rich, so I'll either paint a zebra rug on a big drop cloth or steal Mandi's zebra rug idea.
And these are some other ideas I'd like to incorporate.
