Kids' room Inspiration

This is a photo of my kids' room.  When I painted it the first time I was pregnant with Doodlebug and we thought the development company was going to be buying our home and tearing it down.  That was 4 years ago.....

So here it is today...very little boy.  And I'm ready to make it something a little more neutral for both kiddos.  I already changed out the curtains to white cotton duck tab top panels and threw the mini blinds in the trash ( I am ashamed to say they were coated in dust ) and I was SOOO excited to see them actually IN the trash can!  It's the little things people :)  I'm also trying to do this on a teeny tiny budget....
But here are some photos that *inspired* me...loving this color scheme...

Love the cool blue/grey with those bright little pops of red!

And I really like the idea of the gingham or maybe some ticking which I love too....

My sweet Doodlebug already has a bright red Fokker Tri plane hanging up...and I'm working on some really sweet little red vellum flowers I want to hang from the ceiling over Mighty's bed....And I think I even have enough paint left over from the kitchen that I can mix with some white to lighten it up even more...stay tuned on this one!
I'm linking this to a party at Modern Country Style
