Turn Your Child's Room Into a 'Baby Bachelor Pad'

You wouldn't normally associate a deep shade of charcoal paint with a toddler's room, but when I see this space, I don't even question it. It just works! As does the mix of grown-up pieces, quirky kid-friendly decoration, and vintage. It all comes together for a bedroom that Erin, the mom and creator, aptly named Ike's Baby Bachelor Pad

Get a tour of the entire room, below (including a close-up shot of that amazing rocking chair):


The light fixture was found at an antiques store and spray-painted black to become a focal point of the room. I'm coveting the painting of the drummer.

Most of the artwork on the walls were thrift finds -- even that fab stuffed giraffe head. It makes a big impact for such a little amount of money.

The velvet blue rocker was repurposed from another room in the house. Isn't it a showstopper?

My favorite part of all might be the large Persian rug, which was another thrifty find. Bought used off Craigslist, it was a steal -- only $160!

What do you think of the "Baby Bachelor Pad"? Too sophisticated for a toddler, or super cool?
