Decor for the Big Boy Room

It's been on my mind to update Ethan's room.  I first posted about his big boy bed, but of course, Ethan is still sleeping in his crib, and we'll keep it that way for as long as possible.

I've also started to think about updating some of his decor.  While I never aimed to have a "baby" theme to his nursery, it's clear that it's more baby that big boy.  Here are some of the elements I would like to update:

The gallery wall

I love the idea of adding fun and modern prints to update Ethan's room.  Minted has some amazing options and you can buy each print with a frame of your choice.  Win-win.  I'd also like to break up the gallery wall with some rustic decor, like the deer antlers and letter.

The rug

Speaking of modern, I want to swap out his rug for something a bit more graphic.  It may be overdone, but I freaking love this Ikea rug...and it will be mine Ethan's.

The next thing to figure out is the bedding and window treatments...good thing I have time {fingers crossed!}.

Have a great weekend!
