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.

1 –  Choose a wallpaper that is bright yet still sophisticated enough to grow with your child.

My Pick:

Julia Rothman Daydream Wallpaper in French Blue by Hygge & West

2 – Keep the actual bed clean and white.

My Picks:

Jenny Lind White Bed from The Land of Nod

Blue Primary Nightstand from The Land of Nod

3 – Use throw pillows as an easy and inexpensive way to add character and dimension to a child’s bed.

My Picks:

Tiger Throw  Pillows from The Land of Nod

Bright Letter Throw Pillow from The Land of Nod

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!

My Pick:

Illuminated Round Mirror in Antique Pewter from RH Teen

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.  

My Picks:

Vintage Porter’s Trunk from RH Teen

On the Wall Book Bin from The Land of Nod

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.

My Pick:

Dove Chandelier by Arteriors Lighting

Happy decorating!
