For her son's nursery, designer Joanna Gick of J&J Design Group mixes rustic accents with modern elements. Since barn wood wasn't readily available, she stained pine wood boards to give them a weathered look. For the "D" above the crib, she punched one-inch-squares out of paint chips and glue them to the letter to create a pixilated effect.
Mod Paper Airplanes
Designer Susie Fougerousse of Rosenberry Rooms infuses this boy's nursery with a bold, modern color scheme. For a playful theme, she incorporates paper airplanes onto the wall behind the crib.
Around the World
An oversized map of the world creates a cool focal wall behind the headboard in this boy's bedroom. Continuing the theme, map-inspired pillows are added to the bed. Design by Julie Frank and Alessia Corpino of My Tiny Nest.
For her son's bedroom, blogger Miriam Bradford of Other Pieces of Me reverse stencils a ship on the dresser by using a custom decal. A mobile of ships hangs from the ceiling and collection of globes adds to the nautical theme of the space.
Transportation is a classic boy's theme. Using a color palette of red, white and blue, designer Susie Fougerousse of Rosenberry Rooms brings in the theme through the mural of vintage race cars, emergency vehicle bedding and even a riding toy car.
A theme doesn't have to overwhelm the room. Designer Susie Fougerousse of Rosenberry Rooms uses small accessories in bright colors, such as storage tins and bookends, to add hints of the sea-inspired theme in this boy's room.
Playful and fun, a jungle theme is great option for boys' rooms. Designer Susie Fougerousse of Rosenberry Rooms uses a gallery of animal artwork above the crib to reflect the theme of the nursery.
