Two of the biggest reasons I never painted his room was because he was 5 months old when we moved to our house and I didn't want to be painting well he was going to be sleeping in it and I didn't plan on staying in this house for to long (still don't). But after helping people with their children's rooms the ideas started flowing.
I have always wanted to paint his room with stripes, I have always liked the chair rail with stripes on the bottom half and a solid colour on the top (much better them a boarder) so that was what I was leaning towards but after looking through tones of images of kids rooms I started to really like the one full accent wall of stripes. It seems to be in right now and I think that it is something he can grow with a little longer then the other idea, so this is what I was set on doing and right before I left for Jamaica I had a friend from school come over and we did some taping and painting.
Here are some of my inspiration photos...

shelf at the top it blend in nicely and it is great to have for the kid on the top bunk.

Here is some pictures of my little guy's room before and after....
The colours I picked for his room are of course Benjamin Moore colours, my favorite blue right now Nimbus Gray and the other colours were Misted Green and Flurry. I left a stripe of the already beige colour on the walls to tie it together with the other three walls in that colour.
