Themes From The Real World For Boy’s Decor

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

Your little guy has outgrown the teddy bears of infancy. He’s also starting to assert his own personality. Why not build on both of these inevitable life passages and involve him in decorating his bedroom?

Themes are great ways for parents and children to collaborate on mutual responsibility for a home. As a parent, you naturally have veto power over anything unsafe, too expensive or too garish. At the same time, it can be a joy to watch your son make some of his first choices as you and he create a room around your chosen theme.

Creating a unique room for your little boy to grow up in is a must. It will let him create who he is going to be and let his imagination run wild.

If you have an animal lover maybe that is what your theme could be. Choose wonderful animal pictures from bugs outside to pets that live in the home. Using a great color scheme such as blues and greens to tie everything together. Add a few posters of animals and use some of his stuffed animals which just sit in the corner as decor.

Serengeti Safari: Animal wallpaper borders and fabrics are a great place to start for a safari theme. Match the paint colors to the wallpaper and fabric designs, then add pillows in animal prints. Mount a straw hat and some play binoculars on a wall to give him his safari equipment. Frame some of his animal drawings and display them on the walls. Or get a disposable camera, go on a backyard safari together, and frame his animal photos.

Call of the Wild: Kids love cabins, whether at summer camp or in the mountains, so give him his own cabin in the bedroom. One big advantage to a kids’ cabin theme is that it will match nicely with Rustic decor in other parts of the home, if that’s your preference. Start with a log or pine bed and outfit it with plaids and flannels. Look for woodsy patterns in wallpaper borders, such as bears, fish or moose, leaves, pine cones or sticks. A sturdy trunk for a toy box adds a finishing touch.

Space always for some reason captures the boy’s attention. Maybe it’s the unknown live which lives among these planets or maybe it is because of the aliens. Either way you can create a wonderful space theme in your child’s room. By adding those glow in the dark starts and planets on the wall and even on the ceiling to hanging a wonderful solar system from the ceiling is great ideas. Copy a few photos out of a science book and you have a great learning room!

Talk of the Town: If your guy is more down-to-earth, then build him his very own play town. Design a storefront mural of shops with family names like “Grandma’s Groceries” or “Grandpa’s Pet Shop.” Add an area rug in a road design and he’s the mayor of his own village. Be sure to hang a sign on his door saying “Welcome to My Town. Population: Me.”

If you know one boy you know them all. Many love cars. A car theme room is quite easy to decorate. Black and white checkered flags, car posters, and a shelf for his model cars is a great way to place all his wonderful toys on display. Add a great racetrack area rug in the middle of the floor and you are a go!

Home Design experts all agree that it is essential to use area rugs. And as discussed here one of the most popular ranges is the boys area rugs.
