What a cute boys bedroom design! I love the bright blue colors and the fun bunk beds!
Submitted By: Take the Side Street
Boys rooms are a great place to have some fun in design. The colors can be bright, or neutral. But all ways, we love some great inspiration, (right) like these great boys bedroom designs I loved at some of the recent homes shows I’ve been to (and a friends house).
*Update: We have had a ton of questions about the airplane panel art, so we did some looking. We found similar pieces available at Pottery Barn, and on Etsy. We even found a DIY version from The Cre8tive Outlet.
(I know that technically this isn’t a boys room, but I LOVE the exposed concrete and the graffiti for a boys room idea!)
Now to see how Anna created her fabulous boys bedroom design, and see what hints you can pick up from what she did read on!
Anna stared Take the Side Street, a blog dedicated to the 5 D’s (decor, design, DIY, doughnuts & dumb stuff) in August 2010 and has been attacking home projects and maple bars since then. She lives nearish to such fabulous places as Yellowstone and Jackson Hole and takes advantage of the time her husband spends out fly fishing to knock holes in things or rip up carpet. Together with her husband she has two young sons, the world’s only high strung Golden Retriever, a cat with an attitude, a depressingly long-lived goldfish, and 5 chickens (because everybody knows that the 7th wedding anniversary gift theme is poultry, but even more so because she doesn’t think decisions through properly).
She believes in being authentic, having fun, trusting your gut and never taking yourself too seriously. Oh, and in maple bars. And cute shoes… and in being kind and recycling. And lists.
Before we go too far, let’s remember what the room used to look like (on a messy day!)
And here’s the design board I made for the space:
How did we do?
Details and sources will go up next week (update: here they are) — if there’s something specific you want to know about, make sure to ask in case I start forgetting things. Have a great weekend!
