I love this print:


it has the same sky blue-ish color as the puppy poster and gives you some more colors to work with. I’d imagine a pallette of the light blue, red, mustard yellow. maybe something like this photo below but withthe firefighter pictures instead of the planes.

How old is he?

I am always a little cautious about themed kids rooms because they grow out of them and need to have it redecorated.

But paint is a really easy way to theme it up and cheap to re-do later. You cold paint a hydrant on one wall.

Hang a ladder (easy to remove later) horizontally and hang S hooks from them and use them for hanging buckets to store toys or as a coat hanger

Not sure how that poster ties in to fireman though

You could install a firemans pole in the corner. It would be fun to swing around.

@west.coast.blonde: oh duuhhhhh dalmations! I was just being stupid. That makes sense.

How about wall decals then? They are easy to remove. 

Red bedding is a good idea and then maybe you could find a short with a firetruck on it. Then stuff it and sew up the holes for a fun pillow in the theme.

I think you are on the right track in keeping the paint and the bedding neutral and bringing in your theme with accesories. Easy to cahnge in a few years.

Your banner gives you all the colors you need , blue, black, white, with red as your accent.

You could get a standing clothes pole and spray paint the upright part in a brass color like the fire pole. Add a firefighter’s helmet on top and a pair of black rubber boots nailed to the base for storage of small items.

White dresser with black round handles-also easily changed out in the future.

Ikea has great storage units designed for bins which, of course they also sell.

You could get red bins.
