Designer Genevieve Gorder has a bone to pick with this room design. "My fear with this room is that the child will love it today but outgrow it tomorrow, and that's a waste," explains Candice. "Quality core pieces like the dressers are great starting points; they'll last forever and transition easily. I would have liked to see the theme established with more attention to the temporary accessories in this room rather than the more permanent construction elements."
A jungle theme appears throughout this eclectic boy's room. The space features a contemporary white nightstand with intricate carving detail and a trio of squared mirrors on each door. A white table lamp and white animal figures on the wall and nightstand tie in the overall theme while the roman shade with black trim complements the neutral decor and allows for adjustable natural lighting.
Shades of blue form the base for this cool boy's room. A cushioned, navy headboard with nail head design brings a masculine touch to the space, while the orange pillows add some contrasting color. A metallic, mounted lamp provides light to the space, freeing up the nightstand to display the room's occupant's favorite things. To finish the design and add a touch of whimsy, a robot print hangs next to the bed.
Let's face it: Boys' rooms and Christmas decorations don't usually go hand in hand. Make Christmas decorating fun with a boys'-inspired mobile Christmas tree decorated as a larger-than-life snowman. To do this, first create a snowman head and face from a large, foam floral sphere and place it at the top of the tree. Next, add two scarves just below the head. To create the look of coat buttons, line up between three and seven black ornaments in the center of the tree. Lastly, give the snowman arms with branches placed roughly two-thirds of the way up on each side.
This contemporary boy's bedroom blends modern design with a touch of rustic chic, with plank-style accent walls that give the space the fun feel of a summer camp bunk room. A sleek, built-in desk brings a jolt of sunny yellow to the space, while calm blue bedding provides a complementary accent.
Even though the boys share a room, it was very important to the homeowners for their sons to have their own spaces, so designers created private bunk beds and work spaces for each child to show off his personality.
The bunk beds in this boy's bedroom were custom-designed. Stairs on one side give easy access to the upper bunk and are visually balanced out by the bookshelf on the other side. The top bunk's railing looks delicate, but is plenty sturdy to keep kids safe.
Bright and airy, this little boy's nursery mixes patterns and colors for a creative atmosphere. Traditional damask wallpaper juxtaposes against the blue-and-white striped area rug. An oversized gray rocker with white piping is the perfect spot to rock the little one, while simple white book ledges display favorite reads.
Portable storage containers such as painted wooden crates or metal bins that can be personalized are a stylish option for children's rooms. With an endless array of colors, patterns, fonts and shapes to choose from, these storage containers are a cool and decorative addition to any room.
Because of limited space, rearranging wasn’t really possible when GordonDunning redesigned this room as part of a Dwell with Dignity install. With the help of DIY blogger Dena Stormer they revamped the room’s color palette with a coat of bright red paint, reusing much of the existing furniture, to give the room a fresh new look.
