Campbell's Big Boy Room

I've been meaning to write this post since summer. Whoops. I'm finally getting around to sharing Campbell's big boy room with you all. I absolutely love this room. I had help decorating pretty much my whole entire house and it spoiled me. So when I was in charge of this room all by myself, I was so worried I wouldn't be happy with my choices. I've always loved interior design and would consider myself to be pretty good at it but when you start working with a professional, it makes you realize you aren't as good at it as you thought you were. Ha! I spent hours pouring over every detail of this room and I'm so pleased with the way it all came together.
I had a few pieces from Campbell's nursery that I was already starting with. His dresser was the main piece I wanted to be able to use as well as his glider. I have always loved Campbell's dresser. I love the distressed finish of it. Plus it's basically brand new and in perfect condition so there was no sense in not using it. His glider is just so comfy and we knew there would be space for it in his new room.
When we decorated Campbell's nursery (you can see it HERE) we didn't consider the fact that he would need a big boy bed one day. His crib turned into a toddler bed (see his toddler room HERE) but not into a full size bed. We have since made sure our other boys beds turn into a full sized beds so we don't have to buy them new beds. All of the furniture from Campbell's nursery is from RH Baby and Child. Unfortunately, they didn't have a bed that I liked in the same finish as the dresser. I decided to go with an iron bed because I knew it would work and I think I love having an iron bed more than if we had done one that matched the rest of the furniture. They did have nightstands in the same finish as the dresser and they are the perfect sized bedside table for Campbell's room!
I love RH Baby and Child. The style fits our interior design style for the rest of our house so it's basically a one stop shop for me when I decorate my kids rooms. They make it easy since they have room galleries for design inspiration on their website. I can get ideas of how they pair different things together.
Campbell loves dogs so a dog "theme" just made sense. I loved the dog prints the moment I saw them and thought they would be so perfect for Campbell so I picked those first then decorated everything else around it. Since they are pretty neutral prints it made it easy to choose bedding to go with them.
We wanted to add in a few fun elements for Campbell so we thought a cool star rug, a fun toy basket, and a big star over his bed would make him happy. They do! Campbell LOVES his star light. He likes for it to be left on when he falls asleep and I sneak up every night before I go to bed and turn it off. When he wakes up in the morning, he turns it back on. It's how I know he's awake! I can look on the monitor and if the star light is off, he's still asleep but if it's on, I know he's up! The switch runs right down the center of his bed so he can easily reach up and turn it on and off. I never even considered when we got it that he would use it like this and that it would actually be functional. It's been so great!! Plus, Campbell can sometimes get scared at night and I think his star light makes him feel safe. There's been a few times where I've woken up in the middle of the night and noticed the star light was on, even though I turned it off right before I went to bed.
So there we have it! Campbell's room. It's one of my favorite rooms in our house. I'm thrilled with the way it all came together and spending hours obsessing over every choice I made paid off. Ha!! I think Campbell will love this room for many, many years. I wanted it to be age appropriate but also grow with him and I think we definitely accomplished that. I hope you enjoyed the tour!

  1. So adorable and the Star light is genius! His room is bigger than my 15 year old daughter’s room....fortunately she’s never really complained too much about being in the smallest room.
