How fun is this awesome island themed boys bedroom complete with tree house style bed, ship sail ceiling treatment and breezy tiki hut window treatments! I love it when homeowners want to go all out on their kids' rooms and make it a whimsical space to spark their imagination and make sleeping and play time fun. I wish that my parents let me have kids bedroom decor like this when I was younger rather than the somewhat stuffy and grown up room that they encouraged. Perhaps because of this, I have made it my mission to create rooms that inspire children and encourage them to let their imagination run wild. Even though this looks like a complex design, it was actually pretty simple to achieve.
My boys bedroom decor definitely needs a bit of an update, but we are not quite sure were to begin because he is in that transition phase between kid and teenager. We want to keep the space age appropriate, but want to make sure that the design can grow with him as he gets into high school (and so we don't have to spend the money on a bedroom makeover again). This is what the space looks like now. As you can tell the furniture is a collection of mismatched pieces that we have added since he was a baby. We have subtle sports theme going on already and he absolutely loves any boys room ideas that incorporate football or baseball accents. I think that some type of sports motif would be a good place to begin, and a style that could easily grow with him as he moves into his teen years.
I am so proud of our newly decorated boys room that I just finished up for our new baby. I would not consider myself much of a designer by any means but I worked really hard to create a cohesive look that is not only fun and boyish but that is neutral enough to grow with him into the toddler and elementary school years. I started by looking online for baby boy room ideas that incorporated a navy blue color palette (my favorite) and dark wood furniture. My favorite spaces were ones that used a lot of preppy stripes and classic timeless patterns. This boat theme seemed to be a natural pairing to all of those elements that I loved.
If you are looking for beautiful kids room ideas that can double as a guest room or that can grow with the child as they age, look no further than this gorgeous oceanside retreat. The all white paint palette creates a nice and neutral backdrop for any decorative accents the homeowners decides to add in or swap out over the years. Plus it is a fabulous contrast against the navy blue shades we opted to scatter throughout the room via textiles and accessories. Because the main purpose of this job was to update the space with boys room decor to accommodate the homeowner's grandson, we kept things a little bit rugged with a fun maritime theme. We incorporated sea-worthy stripped pillows, sailboat accessories, and whimsical ship themed prints.
I have been on the hunt for some teen boy bedroom ideas to revamp my son's room before he starts high school. This is his current bedroom and it certainly looks alright, but I feel like we could have some touches of color and decor to make it look more complete and transform it into a space that inspires his imagination and creativity as he moves into these pivotal years in his life. We have found that most kids room decorating ideas are too childish for the new look we are trying to create, so we have been relying on a lot of bachelor pad pictures online and in home decor magazines for funky decor touches to add that are still boyish and fun but that are a bit more mature.
Updating kids room decor is one of my favorite projects to take on because you can have fun with themes and color palettes that would be considered too unconventional for adult bedrooms. Many of my clients ask me where I get my inspiration for these designs and, quite frankly, the kids are my primary source of design ideas. For example, I got the toddler boy room ideas that I used to build this look from my client's son's fascination with maps and puzzles. I thought it would be so cool to incorporate those interests into a funky Americana themed bedroom complete with vintage maps, a patriotic color palette and rustic decorative accents that any little boy would love.
