10 Room Decor Elements for the Modern Toddler

We’re moving next month, which means big changes are in store for my family. My boys currently share a bedroom, but will have their own in the new house, and my daughter’s current “baby” room will transition to one that will serve a little girl. (Pass the Kleenex, will you?)

I’ve been searching for decor for all three of my kids and am finding myself pulled toward an eclectic mix of classic and modern, neutral and bold, vintage and antique. I have a definite style in mind and I know it when I see it.

Here are 10 decor elements that I’m loving at the moment. Tell me what you think!
