Sharing is Caring

If you’ve ever searched for girl’s room ideas online, you probably had a bajillion ideas at your fingertips that magically appeared after a single Google search.

(Spoiler alert: I have an entire post about fun girls’ rooms that you guys have LOVED.)

But boy’s room design ideas?

Womp womp.

(I hope you sang that in your head, because I sure did.)

When I was expecting my son, I searched high and low for design inspiration for his nursery (you can see how his nursery turned out right here).

And sure, Pinterest and Google gave me a few ideas, but everything I came across was either too themed, too neutral (You all know I LOVE some colorful decor!), or simply not my style.

Now as we’ve transitioned M to a big boy bed and are changing his room over from a nursery to a true kid’s room (someone pass the tissues, please), I’m finding myself back in that same situation.

The good news for you?

Because I’ve spent a ton of time looking for boy’s room design ideas, YOU don’t have to! I’ve got some great, colorful inspiration for you right here.

So for all you frustrated boy mamas out there who are looking for colorful decorating inspo for your little dude’s bedroom….it’s your lucky day.

How fun is this colorful spot, designed by Lizzie of Emmerson & Fifteenth?

This colorful boy’s room designed by Chelsea of Farm Fresh Therapy is so stinking cute.

what kind of shelves are used in Cal's room?

Redoing Andew's room next week while he's away at camp and I love the first one. Any idea where the shelving that flanks both sides of the bed are from?

Hi Amy! I'm not sure of the exact source for the shelves, but here are a few affiliate links to similar options. There's a version from Overstock ( and another from Amazon ( that might work for you. I also like Crate & Barrel's Beclkett series, although it's more expensive ( Can't wait to see what do you with his space!

I love the last one and the wall in the blue and red room! Is it bad when I saw the hanging shelves over the bed I thought "accident waiting to happen"? I'm all for floating shelves though, I need to get some more of them.

Haha, I can understand why you might say that about the shelves! I believe this blogger's son is a bit older so that's probably why she wasn't hesitant about adding the shelving. But I hear you -- for a younger child, that might mean trouble. ;-)
