Moving across the world with our family has been an adventure so I thought it fitting to give William an adventure themed bedroom. The cozy size, color scheme, and accessories just feel like home. I guess that’s why his room is my favorite space in our apartment to date. Read on to see how I infused his room with new, whimsical touches along with a few pieces from his nursery.
This room will double as a guest room so we went with a full size bed specifically for that reason. However, now that I’ve spent a few nights in there, I wish we would have gotten a queen size. Anyways, the full size has worked out really well for our little guy. I placed one pool noddle under the fitted sheet on either side to prevent rolling out. So far, my husband has fallen out twice and William is still at zero. Apparently, pool noodles only work for toddlers.
I really love how all the accessories came together in the room. Even still, I find myself buying little things here and there like our friendly, faux deer from Flying Tiger. The LED lantern was also a Tokyo find and it doubles as a nightlight! The teepee hamper and trunk were both found at Home Goods and the adorable, Adventure Awaits sign was plucked from a Bon Ton clearance bin.
I had high hopes that William would love this chair from BoConcept and spend a lot of time in it but ultimately, I’m usually the one who is in it. Still, it’s a versatile piece that also matches a sofa sleeper we have. We also have the obligatory toddler toy organization bins, snagged from Amazon on Prime Day for a serious steal. Both the W pillow case and airplane art are from Target. The book storage is a work in progress but I’m leaning towards a wall display near the table and chair set.
The treasure chest toy bin was a baby shower gift from our registry. I love that it holds a ton and can move to any room without screaming “I’m a Toy Box!!”. The amazing sound machine that we still use, didn’t make the photo cut, but also made it into the big boy room from the nursery. The prints hanging above the bed are actually place mats that I snagged at Kohl’s on super clearance.
I steered away from bedding that was kid centric mainly because I knew adults would be staying in the room occasionally and William isn’t at the stage yet of caring. The quilt and shams are from the Macy’s Martha Stewart line, and the sheets are from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. If my photography skills were better, you’d notice that the sheets feature tiny arrows. Davy Crockett hats flank the headboard because we have two, and why not?
I ordered this Kid Kraft table and chairs set before we left for Tokyo, William was just about a year old and it was perfect timing. He uses it all the time and it’s portable enough that it can be moved around the house. The hand me down globe is perfect for us to chart William’s travels. Each time we visit a new place, we color in that location! The IKEA compass rug was just too perfect, so that made its way home with us too.
“Camp William” has really been a year in the making. I loved this theme when we used it for his first birthday party and even more so now that he’s become such a little explorer. Most of all I love that the furniture we chose can easily transition with him as he grows. If you’re looking to recreate this look or love certain pieces, shoppable links are provided below.
