Little Boy's Bedroom

I have two girls. No boys. So when I'm looking at inspiration photos my eye tends to filter out rooms that apply to boys. But after posting TWICE about a big girl bedroom (here and here) I think it only fair to also give the boys some attention. I'm sure I have at least one reader who has boys (Arinn).
Christine Dovey
For a little gentleman! It has a very subtle nautical theme with the navy striped bedding and the sailboat paintings but does not feel theme-ey. I like the navy trim for the baseboards, casings and closet doors. So clever. And brass in a little boys room doesn't make it feel feminine. On the contrary it gives it a feeling of gentlemen's club.
The grey wood panelling, the rug and the roman blinds are very mature and traditional details for a child's bedroom. The tree wallpaper and captains day bed make it more juvenile and it all comes together to make one smart little room.

Speaking of tree wallpaper.... this may be better for a teen bedroom or used at the cabin (if you're privileged enough to have one). It's a cute idea. Kind of hipster.
Lauren Liess
Another room that could suit a grown up but is fit for a child.
Westbrook Interiors
Giant map of the world and a plush daybed. And another globe mobile. I likr how the trim is all painted out the same colour as the walls.
Lisa Luby Ryan
I love the navy stripes in this room. It's a subtle nautical touch and with the airplane mobile it doesn't feel too theme-ey.
Tim Barber ltd
His and his desks and bunks all painted green looks sharp and is a great space saving design so there's more floor room to play. So many activities!
Jennifer Eisenstadt
I love the monogramed headboards. So dapper. This room looks so luxe but is still playful.

Katie Ridder
Another large map. My favourite part of this room are the dinosaurs displayed on the floating shelves. The positioning of the bed makes it look like a daybed which I'm a big fan of if you've noticed yet...
I love love love the wood pannels on the back wall! And I'm pretty partial to navy and green in a boys room. Although my friend Arinn warned me those colours combined can look like Canucks colours. The small hits are perfect.
Reichel Boussard
This is different. I wouldn't think polka dots would suit a boys bedroom but they're cute in here. It's great that they're not uniform and just scattered around a section of the room instead.
This sweet little bedroom makes me think of Christopher Robin.
Schoolhouse Electric
I love tweed and plaid!! The big boots would indicate this is not a little boy's bedroom but I think it would make for a perfect bedroom for a boy of any age. It's so charming and masculine.
Holly Mathis
A lot of grey which I usually don't like but the hits of orange are great.
I am always a fan of a black feature wall. And I think the stuffed animal heads mounted on the wall are Fantastic! Where do you find something like that???
Restoration Hardware
And finally, Restoration Hardware. It is just perfect always. My favourite is the striped wool blanket on the bed. Wool blankets are so itchy but look so great in boys bedrooms.

So that's my boy's bedroom roundup. Which room was your favourite?
