Super Hero boys bedroom
I absolutely LOVE to design with my kids and help them create spaces they will enjoy spending time in. In my experience, most kids really don’t know what they want. So, I love helping them out and giving them a few different options. As with most rooms, we start with an inspiration piece. Something that they LOVE and are really drawn to. I love taking my kids shopping or just looking on pinterest for some ideas. It was SO much fun seeing my kiddos creating and learning! I guess I pooped them out though… because after I made them paint for two hours, they crashed in the car on the way home. Ooopsy! I am in the LOVE with how the room turned out though and so is my son, which is the most important 🙂 I’m sad I didn’t get a really good picture of the room before. But it was pretty bad! The bottom half was a poop brownish green and top half was an even poopier brown! Bleh!! The final product ended up being fun, clean and mature… just what I was going for!
TIP- THE DREADED THEMED ROOM AND HOW TO COMPROMISE
I personally am not a huge “theme room” person. Especially when it comes to children’s rooms. I just feel like themes can become tacky really quickly and the colors are usually those that I don’t care for. But in this case, my son was adamit. Cooper, my oldest knew he wanted his old Spider man stuff since he didn’t get to enjoy it in the old house for very long. And since it had been a couple years since we really decorated his room, he had matured and wanted something a little more grown up boy. So I set out to make the cleanest and most tasteful Super Hero room I could think of. I thought by adding some navy blue it would really make the room feel older while still maintaining that superhero theme. I also, wanted to put a more modern. clean spin on the superhero theme. So I thought, large simple stripes would so the trick! I am VERY much in love with lime green (it’s my favorite color) so I just HAD to incorporate it into this fun boys room as well! I knew I wanted to bring in the clean crisp color of cream to make the room feel large and open as well so I continued the color up to the ceiling and onto the entire ceiling.
TRICK- USE THEME PIECES SPARINGLY
In my opinion (and take it for what you will) I like to use theme pieces sparingly. That means, if your child tires of the theme, then just take down the themed decor and you still have a perfectly designed and functional room! I love how if he did end up growing out of super hero’s anytime soon then, I can just remove a few wall decals, and a few decor pieces and his room still looks great! No, themed pieces needed or we can easily add a different theme!
