Transforming Graham’s room into a “big boy” room has definitely been a process. I feel like it is something that we do a little at a time for a few different reasons. First of all, money has to be spent wisely. Secondly, his tastes are ever changing. Finally, we want to create an environment that will grow with him for several years and not just one or two.
I am so grateful and blessed to be a Gallery Direct Ambassador which means we are able to try out many different pieces of high quality art throughout the year. I have been stewing over this decision for quite sometime and I am so glad I did! My final selection ended up being a homerun for the look of the room as well as for Graham’s taste.
If you are new around here, Gallery Direct is an online shop that allows you to upload your own pictures or browse through their massive selection of photos and have those photos/pictures put on several different mediums. We absolutely love our aluminum piece of our favorite vacation destination: Ocracoke, NC.
So, for Graham’s room I decided upon two vintage stock photos of old cars. I remember my brother’s room growing up featured magazine pull outs of his favorite cars which inspired me to this. Graham truly loves just about any type of vehicle and he already had the gorgeous vintage airplane artwork we received last year from Gallery Direct. I really wanted to pull it all together and I feel like these pieces did the trick!
My original idea was to place them on the same wall a few feet apart where his dresser is located, but once they came in we decided they were so beautiful that they each needed their own wall. We opted for shelves on the other wall which were definitely needed!
I love the look and feel of the canvas wrap. It is modern, but not too “fancy” for a little kids room. I can see Graham loving these on his walls for at least 10 more years. Hopefully he will love them until college (ok maybe that is wishful thinking).
