I think it's great! Especially that you resisted the norm around here to move farther from town to get a bigger, cheaper home. (I'm just north of Dallas as well, where many of my friends cannot imagine having anything less than a 4 BR home and 2 large SUVs once they have a kid.)

I am just curious about their clothes/shoe storage. Do they have a closet in the room?

One word: chevron.

Love the chevron stripes! I think I have sold 4 dozen mobiles with papers full of chevron stripes (grey and white, yellow and white, pink and white, multi) on Etsy, and I haven't gotten tired of them yet, either.

Ooh, I love seeing this because we are going to do a B-themed party for my son Bennett's 2nd birthday in February. So many of his favorite things start with B: bubbles, balloons, blue, Brobee, baseballs, blueberries, buckets, basketball, bicycles, bounce houses. . . This is a very sweet and feminine take on the version I had in mind for our family.

Great room! I like the hot air balloons -- and the Amy Butler paper they are made from. I do a lot of crafts with paper for my own Etsy shop, and that was one of my favorite collections.

Hang onto your bumpers. If Noelle is like my son, she will begin gnawing on her pretty crib at some point -- and I folded the bumpers over the top edge, all the way around the crib, as a "teething rail." :)

Hats off to you for the hand-painted letters! I love the look of the whole room. Enjoy that baby boy!

That will be one lucky baby. It's a stylish and thoughtfully designed room. That zebra print is the best!

Good luck.

(Hmmm, now I am wondering if it is blue in real life and not grey. . . )

Kohl's has a few options that come in grey in the Home > Bedroom > Bedding > Coverlets section of its website, but most are full/queen or king only. However, this one is nice (without the frilly accents) and the twin is on sale for $45:

I bought my son's baby book here and we love it -- http://www.ragandbonebindery.com.

BUT! I almost bought one of these, and these have extension packs for toddler and school years. Hmm, kind of wish I had gotten one of these now. . .

I hope dad brought back a colorful vuvuzela to hang on the wall! :)

Love that striped bedding!

I am not a parent yet, but heck, I was just wondering if you could give up some bottom drawer space -- instead, weighing it down with heavy textbooks or bricks to give it a low center of gravity. ???

Not sure if that would keep it from tipping altogether, but maybe while you're teaching him not to climb, it would slow him down.

LOVE, love, love!

I am also considering the aqua/yellow combo because I love baby P and Norah's nurseries so much -- and now Noah's. (My main plan has been to paint a softer aqua with red, but I am really digging the yellow accents now.)

That egg lamp is really cool, too.

I think those large butterflies are from Pottery Barn Kids, right?

Too bad there's not a purple one. . . rah rah, TCU. :)

Oooh, you can also purchase get individual components of this Glenna Jean Kirby bedding, if you don't mind a few additional colors.

Here's a very mod graphic pink, grey, black and white set.

JCPenney has a solid pink set with quilted dots that may work.

I like this Flow bedding, but it is definitely pink and brown, not pink and grey.

One more -- Cotton Tale Poppy bedding?

I love Jenn Ski's designs. The same animals from the flashcards are in her line of K & Co. scrapbook papers from last year, and I use those to make mobiles in my etsy shop. They are always my best sellers!

Love the green elephant print, too.

Great room. :)
