Mr B's Boys Toddler Bedroom Makeover

This post is another one that has been loonnnggg in the making! You see I actually have given Mr B's room not one, but two toddler makeovers in the past twelve months - talk about crazy (and a little bit expensive!).
Toddler Makeover Part 1 incorporated the items that I blogged about here. This room featured a colour scheme of pale grey, aqua and a hint of red - such a gorgeous little colour scheme for a little man.

Unfortunately this mini makeover was a bit short lived, as soon after completion, we found out that I was pregnant (yay!). This meant that the gorgeous cot bedding was made redundant a little sooner than planned, as we needed to transition the little man to single bed.
Although I absolutely loved the grey, aqua and red colour scheme of the room, I fell in love with this gorgeous bedding set when I started hunting around for quilt covers...
Once I saw this gorgeous little linen set from Olli Ella I was just sold on this whole colour scheme.

So for Toddler Makeover Part 2, I decided to change it up to a navy, pale blue and grey scheme. I also felt that this was a bit more 'classic' and might see me through a few more years without changing too much - though we all know that I do love to change my colour schemes up!
And this is how the room looks now...


You will notice that the only constant in my colour schemes is the grey. The reason for this is that I don't really have much luck convincing hubby to paint over the grey feature wall (from nursery days that you can read about here), so for now it stays!!

I would like to remove the 'Brodie' sticker decal as it was originally placed over the cot, so it kind of looks to be in a weird position now.

If you are interested in me posting about the Stocklists, have any questions, or want any further information on anything in the room, please let me know by commenting below or contacting me, and I will pop it up in a blog post.

I really do love the way that it has turned out and so does Mr B - every time we have a guest come and visit, the first thing that he does is take them to show them his room - he just loves it to bits!!

Though this hasn't been the only space I have been madly trying to finish... Miss C's nursery is also almost done so I will be sure to get my act together and blog about this very soon...

So what do you think?

This post was brought to you in collaboration with Cordell.


  1. It's a gorgeous room - love everything! A stockist list would be fantastic - bed, digger canvas, ladder shelves. Fantastic decorating job - no wonder your little man loves it!

  2. Hi Alison,

    Love the amazing transformation. I love every bit of it. Yes, PLEASE...the stockist list would be great. Where did you buy the picture frame from? What are their dimensions? I am currently looking for that white picture frame. I love the leader shelves too & the pillow with the B initial in it.

    Thank you, Alison.

  3. Beauttiful! Looks so fresh and cheerful Allison - no wonder Mr B loves it. I love how lovely white can look for a boy too. I especially love the wooden tree and the ladder shelves. Amelie spent her first night in her big girl room last night. Scott and I were pretty emotional. Scott went and stood in the (now very bare) nursery for about 10 minutes after Amelie went to sleep. Don't they look so little in big beds!
