We started with the hills. I didn't really lay this out ahead of time, I just used my brush and drew some hills on the wall. I went back and then filled them in. The trees we did by stencil. We looked up the Dr. Seuss trees online and used a piece of cardboard as a stencil. We just used the top of the tree and then drew in our own trunks. The trees we painted with bright Dr. Seuss colors.
After the hills and trees were done we next worked on the clouds. We used a piece of cardboard to make a stencil for the clouds as well.
Next, we ordered the Dr. Seuss decals you see. Before we stuck them around the room, we cut them up and taped them with painters tape around to see if we liked the placement. When we got the placement we liked, we just stuck them around the room per the given directions.
Lastly we found the Dr. Seuss quote decal online. It usually comes as a paragraph clump, but we cut it up word by word and placed it in our pre-painted yellow swirl. Lastly, to get the perfect kids book look, we took black permanent marker and outlined our hills, trees, clouds, and yellow swirl.
Our little one loves this room! When she was first learning to talk, she would point at the different characters and we would teach her who they were. She loved relating them to her Dr. Seuss books. To make the room even better her Nana gave her some Dr. Seuss stuffed animals that we also placed around the room... you can see the fish up on her curtain rod and the elephant on her bed :)
Lastly, her bedding was the easiest part! It's a new baby bedding set from Target. We thought the large circles and polka dots were a perfect neutral accent to the room, without taking all the decor overboard.
She still loves her room, but is already begging for a princess theme!
If you could design the perfect room for your kids, what would it be and why?
