Tips for Creating the Ultimate Boy’s Room

By Jane Blanchard

Are you looking to design an over-the-top bedroom for your son? I love the idea of creating a stylish and functional boys’ bedroom that’s a gorgeous extension of your own design aesthetic. Whatever design style you choose, it is important to create an environment that stimulates the imagination of your son. Accentuate his interests with a great design theme — perhaps your son is a sports fanatic, dreams of traveling through the cosmos as an astronaut, or aspires to sail around the world. Check out some great inspiration and ideas for you to help you choose the design that is perfect for your little man!
