BEDROOMS, INTERIOR DECORATING TIPS

My son's Dinosaur theme bedroom

boys-bedroom-dinosaur-theme

I’m working on a dinosaur theme bedroom for my son.  I love to decorate kids’ bedrooms – it’s so much fun! The colours, the prints, the themes – it’s a great way to really get creative and adventurous plus show off their personality.

 

We have decorated a few kids’ bedrooms and recently a teenage girl’s bedroom – we love giving kid’s a space of their own and helping mom and dad get the look for less – and typically we are doing this ‘bedroom makeover’ as a Christmas or Birthday gift – what a great idea!

 

My youngest son, Lincoln, is turning 3 in about 4 months and I’m thinking it’s time for his room to become his own.  He will be transitioning out of his crib this summer and it’s probably a good time to makeover his room.  My son is obsessed with dinosaurs and typically I don’t dive head first into a theme but this strong love of dinosaurs has been going on for some time, so I think I have found my theme.

 

When I decorate kids rooms – for clients or my own children – I like to add themed accessories like small decor items, pillows, bed sheets etc…I also like to find items that aren’t too permanent so in a few years when he has a new ‘favourite’ I can make the change very easily.

 

Here are some of my favouite items for Lincoln’s bedroom:

 

I love this pillow – accessories like this are great and affordable finds and they are perfect for a bed or a rocking chair (which we happen to have in his room so I think this will be just perfect)

 

 

Art for kids rooms can be tricky to find but you can get creative with art that isn’t necessarily stretched canvas or framed – this hanging wire dinosaur from Pottery Barn Kids is so cute (and it’s on sale right now, too)

You can’t go wrong with extra storage and I’m a big fan of easy storage for kids.  Baskets and bins are great in bedrooms and playrooms for quick and easy clean up of toys and books.  I love these cute dinosaur storage bins!

When I decorated my 3 older children’s bedrooms I decided that themed sheets were a good choice! I kept their duvet covers simple (Pottery Barn rugby stripes for my boys’ shared bedroom and a Floral for my daughter-I like a duvet cover that can grow with them). But I like to have more fun with their sheets – like these cute and colourful dinosaur sheets!

 

 

Area rugs are a great way to add a splash of colour and pattern to any room – so this is why I love this area rug for my son’s bedroom.  I love the lime green colour with the blue and of course, the dinosaur – I know he will love it, too!

 

 

 

Night time can be a bit scary for kids, so I always have their bedrooms outfitted with a night lightThis dinosaur night light is adorable – the light is soft, you can choose the colour as a constant or changing (red, green, or blue) plus it is portable so at night if my little guy has to got use the potty he can use it as a flash light

 

 

 

To top off the dinosaur theme bedroom … a cute set of dinosaur pjs!

I’m so excited to transform his bedroom – just a few pieces will get the look and I won’t have to spend a lot!

      Thanks, Rebeekah! These night lights are great – my old boys have one (it’s an owl) – the light is nice and soft and they use it for those middle of the night bathroom visits – it’s perfect! I’m sure my littlest guy will love his room!

      Congrats! So exciting – there are many different baby and boy bedroom themes out there. I kept my nurseries pretty neutral and soothing and didn’t really add much of a theme until they were around 3 years old!

    I absolutely love themed rooms!

      Me too! I aim for a theme that has some stamina too – that way you don’t have to re-do the room as quickly as you did it!
