The first rule of thumb in designing a boy's room is probably not to use the word "design". Whenever I start talking about designing something all the boys in the house go running...
(maybe if the word "media room" came after it they'd stick around!)
I love this colorful menagerie. It's not thematic or kitschy. All the essential elements are present including a bedside table and lamp, comfortable bedding and headboard, soft carpeting underfoot and a unique light fixture.
This cozy rustic bedroom brings back memories of summer camp. A window seat and desk provide a place to sit and work, read or relax.
This sleek minimalistic bedroom is both masculine and contemporary. Wouldn't you feel fortunate to have such a large window and balcony in your bedroom?
Retro inspired, this boy's bedroom has a casual bohemian vibe.
Open shelving provides a place to display momentos. A touch of sleek black adds sophistication.
This bright crisp bedroom has a fresh summery vibe. White beadboard walls, a blue ceiling and unique chandelier add character and texture. Hanging the artwork asymmetrically creates a casual feel.
An oversized vintage trunk makes a great storage container, as well as the perfect spot to perch while putting on your shoes.
Red, white and blue is a common traditional color scheme that I never tire of. In this patriotic bedroom, an accent wall is created by hanging a large American flag. Nautical accessories, crisp white beadboard walls and a rich blue ceiling heighten the aquatic feel. I imagine this room in an east coast beach house.
Designed by Tom Scheerer, this austere bedroom benefits from pops of orange color, textural bamboo blinds and an eclectic mix of furniture. Simple lines and a clean white background create a serene, uncomplicated and effortless aesthetic.
Natural colors and rustic elements are combined to create a charmingly simple bedroom. Keeping the background simple makes it easy to incorporate various styles and colors with ease.
Hung at different levels, three beds can coexist without feeling cramped or oppressive. Hung using natural rope and straightforward wood platforms creates a rustic warmth and friendliness. I love that each bunk has it's own corresponding display of artwork.
Perfect for the sports enthusiast, this bedroom manages to incorporate athletic elements without appearing to thematic or contrived. Neutral colors keep the space feeling undecorated.
