The animal-loving little boy wanted the wilderness in his space. After painting it the same greige as in the dining room, Sonal stuck on a vinyl decal world map from Wallums and hung a wicker antelope head from Target.

With a tent from Crate & Kids and a throw with pine trees (also from Target), the room is almost a permanent campout.
