A Boys Bedroom Decor // Black, White And Grey

This month our guest blogger Emily shares her eldest sons bedroom, I love how she has made it timeless, suiting his age now and for the future. She has some great little personal touches including one of her most recent upcycles…..

Our oldest son is now 8 years old. I wanted him to have a bedroom that was a bit more grown up when we moved into our house. I love black, white and grey together and think it works well for his bedroom.

Before we moved in I had seen his bedding in Next and loved the stripes. Also it was a set that contains two duvet covers and two pillowcases, always essential with children and brilliant that I can wash the bedding and have another set ready to go that is the same.

We chose a white bed, with a trundle underneath, as an extra bed is always handy to have for sleepovers. This bed looks great too and the bottom drawers are real, you can never have too much storage! Bed from Beds on Legs.

Theo had two sets of drawers and a desk in his room, all pine, and all needed something doing with them. I had some Little Greene French Grey paint left over (only just enough!) so decided to paint them all. They look so much better!

I decided to change the knobs on the drawers too. There are so many options available but they can work out expensive especially when I needed to buy quite a few. I found these ceramic black and white ones on eBay. They are shipped from Hong Kong so take a little while but are just perfect and £1 each!!

Some other things I love in Theo’s room are….

  • Dr Seuss wall sticker next to his bookcase. I love the saying and it looks fab on his wall. Bought from Amazon and came in different sizes and colours too.
  • Star Wars posters. So many available from All Posters and the frames were from Amazon. So great that we can just change the posters as Theo gets older.
  • Money tin from The Bright Side. Always love their things and this was a great present for Theo.

His room is a great, calming space for him. Always things to be done but happy with how it is for now.

Thank you for reading and look forward to reading your comments.

  • This looks fab. I would never think to change things like this. I am quite a creative person, but interiors through me for some reason x

      I just don’t like pine anymore and it looks so much better in his room. If I can do it then anyone can!! X

      I know the pine was yuk but now looks so much better and his room feels lighter too! X

  • I love that the room can grow with him! I also think the little extra touches really make it such as the wall quote and pocket money tin. Great way of bringing in personality
