Boy’s bedroom Ideas. Decorating with a rug from Little P.

Boy's-bedroom-photo-by-Little-Big-BellEvery Spring, I redecorate my son’s bedroom. I must have quite a collection of Boy’s bedroom ideas on this blog by now.

Well, it’s officially Spring now, with the clocks going forward by an hour this weekend.

My son’s room is like a chameleon, it is always changing. The above photo is the last makeover I did, featuring The Little White Company’s bedding range with British Icons, a striped rug from Ralph Lauren Home and some recycled wine boxes that I painted to turn into display shelves above the bed.Little-P-Round-and-Round-rug-styled-and-photo-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-BellLast Winter, I acquired the cutest rug (above) for my son’s room. It’s by Australian brand, Little P. The rug is called Round & Round, in the Cloudy Pop colour range.

I’ve been so busy, that I haven’t had the chance to place it in his room, until now.

As my son is getting older, I wanted something that was a bit more grown up, but still has the fun and colourful element to inject into a young boy’s room.Kid's-workspace-photo-by-Little-Big-BellI decided to redecorate using the colour palette of the rug.

So it will be shades of blues in teals and indigo, black and white, with bright pops of yellow.Bedroom-ideas-for-boys-photo-and-styling-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-BellThe new items that I have added are the Teal coloured bedspread and blue rectangular cushion from Hay and the funny Emoji cushion.

My son loves his new Little P Round & Round rug. He told me that he loves sitting on it, as it is super soft. It’s made of 100% New Zealand wool. He’s usually on the rug whilst playing with his Lego mini figures.

He’s now trying to convince me to move it to the other side of his bed, where his X-box computer game is.

I don’t think I’ll be doing that, as I don’t want him to get too comfortable sitting in front of screen games all day.

Hope you have enjoyed this Boy’s bedroom ideas post. I will be back with lots more interiors posts soon.

Have a wonderful week ahead.

  1. Love the bright pops of yellow with the teal! And how could you not smile looking at that emoji cushion? Super cute, bet your boy loves it 🙂 xx

  2. That rug is wonderful Geraldine & I love the ‘crying with laughter’ emoji cushion – too cute! xx

  3. Lovely colour palette Geraldine and definitely a little more grown up – I love it and your son must too! xx

  4. Looks wonderful a really fun and stylish room

  5. That’s a really good way of choosing a scheme for a room and something I suggest to clients when they don’t know where to start. That’s a lovely rug and will last your son for years as it’s fun but not too childish. Looks fab!x

  6. Geraldine, you really are my style inspiration when it comes to boys’ rooms. This looks amazing and I love how you have a neutral background so can swap and change the colourful accents. I’ve just cleared my five year old’s room ready to paint it white and teal is one of the colours he’s chosen. It’s so nice. I suggested yellow, too, but he wants fuchsia. I’m not going to argue with that 🙂 x

      Thanks Rachel. Great that your son knows what he wants. He loves colour by the sounds of it. Happy decorating lovely. x

  7. What a lucky boy! So true how a couple of little changes can totally update a room and give a new perspective x

  8. Gorgeous colours! I thought the bedroom looked great before, but the changes are amazing!

    I really love the combination of yellow and teal. I would love to have same combination for my son’s room. I like the way you designed all things into something attractive. And that emoji cushion is cool. Great Work!
