Adding Personality to a Shared Boys Room
I’ve got boys bedrooms on the brain these days.
Today I’m thinking about my older two boys (they are 6 and a half – yes, twins). Other than moving them into bunk beds a few months back, we haven’t done much to their room since it was painted just before we moved into our current house.
I generally like the overall colour scheme of reds and blues with some green thrown in. However, it needs more clothes storage (more on that later) and I’d say it’s time we got something up on the walls!
How to finish the room with whimsical accents that are tailored to the individual. My two older boys couldn’t be any different. One likes (read: LOVES) sports, the other likes Star Wars and more fantasy-like play.
Here’s a shot of what the room currently looks like (yes, in the glory of everyday living):
Consistent elements such as colour, bedding and furnishings is key – the fun is in the accents and where they are placed.
Here are a few ideas I’ve come across recently that I am using for inspiration in my efforts to personalize the room.
I still need to source out wall art and I am thinking of swapping the curtains out for a solid colour – a denim Roman blind perhaps?
Then again … boys are so hard on the house I wonder why I am going to any effort at all to decorate their room.
This wall decal sums it up for me:
How would you personalize a shared bedroom when the occupants are soooo different?
