We recently ordered new bedding for each of our boys. Jackson choose this:

I can decorate with this. Airplanes, sky, clouds, got it. No problem.

Jonathan chose this:I don't know what to do with this. I am stuck. Notice the walls in the demo room are plain white. Not helpful. I need inspiration. I could do big camo blobs on his walls, but I don't think I really want to do that. Any suggestions?

I had great plans for cute rooms, but this is what they wanted. Maybe that blue camo looks like the sea? I can do sea/beach/water decor.

I am also a little sad at the realization that they are now beyond having "cute" rooms. When did they get so big?

Update: Right now we are considering painting the walls a light blue and possibly going with a shark/underwater type theme. Jonathan loves sharks and there are some really great shark wall stickers out there that would look good. Thanks for the input!

For Jonathan's room I think I would paint the walls one of the lighter blues in the camo fabric and leave it at that, maybe paint the ceiling a slightly lighter shade of blue than the walls if you have white crown moulding. Frame/mat and put up some of his art work

And remember it's his room -- he didn't pick sea/beach/water. It's okay to not have a theme. There is a lot to be said for keeping it plain and simple.

For Jackson's room, I'd definitely paint some clouds on the ceiling and do the walls in a pale sky blue and then hang airplanes from the ceiling.
