Boys Decor Ideas!

12 Fun Ways to Bring Imagination to Boys Rooms

Every little boy deserves a stylish and inventive room where he will want to hang out! Creating the best boys room decor can be a lot of fun, too, especially when you involve your child, letting him help to choose themes and color palettes. Because they are growing up fast, it can be helpful to pick a classic theme, or at least try not to go overboard with an a-la-moment trend. His favorite cartoon character may seem like his world now, but in a year or two he may have moved on to another interest altogether. Removable wall art is the perfect opportunity to make a big statement without breaking the piggy bank, and without commitment anxiety. It’s a lot easier to peel away a dinosaur wall decal than it is to replace a T-Rex shaped bed! A few traditional boys room themes that never seem to get old, and have a knack for growing with your son, are sports, nautical, camping, and space. Other popular boys decor themes include dinosaur boys rooms, cars and trucks, jungle adventure, robots, and superheroes. Also, keep in mind that you do not have to commit to a particular theme at all! You can simply focus on arranging the room in an engaging way that will present plenty of opportunities for him to enjoy playing, reading, sleeping, and entertaining friends in his own special space. Speaking of making a space special, dry-erase wall decals are an interactive way to decorate his walls while encouraging his creativity. Message boards make great wall art for kids because they create a re-usable space to doodle, write notes, and play tic-tac-toe. Since WallPops are so easy to remove to make way for changing tastes, they are truly perfect for kids decor! And, because they are reusable, you could even recycle wall art into a little brothers room when the time comes to revamp! Browse these fun boys room decor themes with your little one for some inspiration.

From Crayons to Perfume

Saying Thank You to a Special Teacher

A brilliant thank you gift for a teacher by WallPops

The end of a school year is always exciting, and also comes with a touch of bittersweet reverie. Marking the ever turning carousel of time, the last day of school is a very symbolic event. Teachers are a vital part of our children’s journey. In between learning about cursive and tadpoles, multiplication and music, teachers also deliver life wisdom, and negotiate social dynamics. Acknowledging the dedication and time that a teacher has spent over the year is a wonderful gesture, one that shows appreciation, and gives your child a chance to express a gracious goodbye. WallPops are a beautiful thank you gift for a teacher. A lot of teachers use WallPops in their classrooms to add a fun, personal touch without damaging school walls. The dry-erase boards and calendar decals are also handy for making daily notes, practicing math, spelling, and handwriting, and keeping track of things like science experiment results. The peel and stick alphabet decals are an awesome addition to any classroom! They can be arranged as a beautiful, educational alphabet. Or, since the set comes with multiples of each letter, these decals can be arranged to label areas with messages like “wash your hands!” and “library books”. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for perfect teacher’s gifts!

Create Ambiance and Serenity

Looking to add a little drama and intrigue to your decor? For a compelling re-vamp, that truly defines a space and sanctions a sense of privacy, or can even hide an unsightly area, a room divider is a stylish solution. Do you have an open space that needs some definition, or spot that could benefit from a little separation? A room divider evokes  a wall or a curtain, but with a bohemian flair. Don’t have a breakfast nook but always wanted one? Create a little morning sanctuary to enjoy your coffee by hanging panels from the ceiling, it’s easy and chic! Want to promote privacy for your bed, imply a door where there isn’t one, or creatively hide a messier area in the house? These swanky panels still let in light, and adorn open space with artistic flair!

Picture a loft space, or a dorm room…. an open floor plan is refreshing! But it can also be stark, and definitely lacks privacy. Delivering dimension, with gorgeous detail, a room divider brings character along with it’s unique ability to construct a boundary. WallPops room panels are perfect in any space because they are so customizable. Hook the square panels together (super easy!) to create the exact size and shape divider you need. They also work in windows for the look of sophisticated iron-work, encouraging privacy without blocking the light. Sanctuary, just as the name implies, makes an area quieter and more special with a flora and fauna design. Casbah does the same, but adds a Moroccan vibe to a space.
