Transitioning your child from crib to big bed can be scary.  Creating a fun classic modern big boy room for her little boy was the key as Caroline Kilmartin was worried this transition from crib to bed would be difficult.  So her strategy, make it as fun and interesting as possible so her little boy would never want to leave it!  We think it was a success as she did an amazing job…. creating a fun room with space + astronauts and dinosaurs…how could you go wrong?!   We love how she chose both classic and modern pieces with only touches of a theme that were not overwhelming. Very good mix of style + design.  Sharing her words + all the links to GET THE LOOK below….

She Says, “We were transitioning my two year old son from a crib to a regular bed and I was terrified that without bedrails to stop him he would just leave his bed/room and run around the halls all night. My strategy was to make his room as interesting as possible for him so he actually WANTED to stay in there. Painting one wall a dark color and adding a moon decal instantly created a space atmosphere on one side of the room which was a huge hit for my son. We added a vintage chair and leather reading light next to the bed since our son makes us read at least 5 books to him every single night before bed. On the other side we created a dinosaur/explore area with a teepee, leaf rug and toy dinosaurs. My son loves to hide in the teepee and play pretend. The dinosaurs on the wall are actually decals that go on and off very easily. I was surprised how much he loved his room and there hasn’t been one night he’s tried to leave it! ”
