When creating the Little Boy Blu room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014, designer Shelley Cahan left the room’s existing fabric wall treatment intact. The room’s muted blue-and-gray color palette with youthful pops of persimmon complements the patterned walls.
This little boy's bedroom is filled with his favorite things. Green leaves create a canopy and complement the green-painted floor and green accents, including bedding, an area rug, toys and a stepstool. A built-in craft desk founds out the very playful space.
The sea blue tiled floor is designed to look like the ocean floor and picks up the Noah's Ark theme from the little boy's bedroom. The pinstripe walls add pattern to the classic space, while the white vanity boasts open shelving for the easy retrieval of towels and toys.
Before the makeover, this little boy’s room didn’t show his love for fishing or space at all. As part of a Dwell with Dignity makeover, designer Egypt Sherrod redecorated the space to make it more personal.
This boys' bedroom, designed with a safari theme, is perfect for the little explorer. And its simple black, white and yellow color theme can easily move in a different direction when the child gets older.
An Hermes pillow in an orange-and-white checkerboard pattern provides eye-catching contrast against the neutral bedding of the Little Boy Blu room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014. The classic blue-and-white pattern in the fabric wallpaper is Pierre Frey's 18th-century ikat Toile de Nantes print.
Noah's Ark is infused into this little boy's room since that's what he loved. The wallpaper has animal prints in a tone-on-tone application to keep it from being too juvenile. HGTV Design Star contestant Blanche Garcia also accents with a sea blue hue that is carried into his bathroom.
To create a unique space for the homeowners' little boy, designers anchored the space in a bright blue wall color and mural that depicts a map of the world. Then, they added a navy bed frame to add contrast in the space. Finally, they added colorful pillows and the occupant's prized possessions-a statue and a guitar-to give the space a personalized touch to the room.
In the homeowners' teenage son's bedroom, designers wanted to really showcase his personality, so they anchored the space in the sleek, white wall color and ash-colored wood floor to connect this room to the rest of the home's design. Then, they incorporated the son's favorite things-sports, cars and music-by hanging posters on the wall in homage to this. They also made sure to include fun, bright colored details, such as the table lamps and the bed linens to bring a little fun to the room.
An upscale retreat for the youngest gentleman of the house, the Little Boy Blu room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 offers a nostalgic sense of boyish adventure. Designer Shelley Cahan combined classic, tailored elements with vintage-inspired nickel accents, distressed furnishings and a hand-drawn airplane on the ceiling.
This bedroom is small, so in order to fit beds for two boys, Little Crown Interiors chose a modern bunk bed. This decision allowed open floor space for playing and plenty of wall space for whimsical decor. The challenge proved finding a wall feature that was the right size for the room, which has high ceilings. Custom giraffe decals were the perfect solution – expertly filling the wall space in a fun, kid-friendly manner.
This boys' room features high ceilings and a wall ledge above the closet. Little Crown Interiors wanted to ensure this space was used wisely, so the eye would be drawn up and around the entire bedroom. To do this, they created custom wood wall names for both boys, placed them above the closet and added decor on the ledge to keep the color palette going throughout the whole space.
This space hosts the two Stansell boys, who share this bedroom that could also be described as their own little well-curated museum of interests. Their personalities and evidence of their adventures are proudly displayed around their room. If you look closely you’ll spy that at least one of the boys is a budding chef. They also have a small family of hamsters between them, and they love yellow tractors. The boys’ room is a really good example of how I approach kids' spaces: always go monochromatic with walls and bedding. Between their toys, books, art, rugs, etc. there will be plenty of opportunity for stimulation/adding interest without becoming too busy. My fave in the room? The drapes are perfectly appointed: they look fun and put an exclamation point on the entire space.
Not hard to rouse your littles in the morning when they get to slide out of bed! The cool wood bunk bed in this green and red boys' bedroom features a slide down from the top bunk and cool tent-like flaps for the bottom bunk.
A little boy needs lots of space to play and plenty of nooks to keep all those toys. This room keeps the middle of the room open for play space with storage around the perimeter. The window sill and wooden desk provide elevated storage and extra work space. A blue accent wall is complemented by a blue area rug and striped red and blue blanket.
Designers hung artwork over the dresser that isn't too "little kid-ish" but is still fun and exciting. These pieces are fun and youthful, but can be easily exchanged for something more sophisticated the homeowners' little boy grows.
Christmas is the perfect opportunity to pull out those vintage mementoes you've kept tucked away in an attic or closet. Atlanta designer Mallory Mathison added a simple Target wreath to this classic hobby horse, accessorized with a bright red bow for the perfect seasonal touch in this little boy bedroom. Continuing the red theme, vintage twin beds have been painted a cheerful cherry red to beautifully contrast with the room's blue accents.
