Create your boy’s dream space with these interior design ideas, inspiration, and sources
Designing a children’s bedroom is a fun and creative project for mom and a great area where you can unleash your creativity. The options, though, can be more boundless than in any other space…unlike in other areas, there are no boundaries with colors and fun details when it comes to a boy’s bedroom design.
Don’t know where to start when embarking on an interior design project for your children’s bedroom? Here’s your own personal mood board that will have even the littlest guy jumping for joy.
1 – Choose a wallpaper that is bright yet still sophisticated enough to grow with your child.
2 – Keep the actual bed clean and white.
Pair it with a nightstand with a pop of blue (they don’t have to “match”).
3 – Use throw pillows as an easy and inexpensive way to add character and dimension to a child’s bed.

4 – Add interest and function to those walls. This round antique pewter mirror can be added above the bed and does double duty as a light source and a looking glass!
5 – Practically, we know our kids need lots of storage for toys. Let the storage add to the decor instead of detracting. This vintage aluminum trunk and wall hung book bin will keep your favorites handy.
6 – Don’t overlook your light fixture. Let’s talk about that glass dove chandelier—isn’t it amazing?! This is a piece that I feel really pulls the room together beautifully and keeps it fresh, modern, and fabulous.
