Red, White & Blue Boy’s Room & Happy July 4th

blue-star-boys-bedroom
It’s Independence Day here in the USA and a day when our pride for the stars and stripes is most evident. I spotted this patriotic red, white and blue boy’s bedroom on Project Nursery, loved the look and thought it was perfect for today’s post. The walls painted a navy and pale blue, star rug and stylish storage for toys {below} are my favorite elements.
