3 beautiful-in-blue boys' bedrooms

06 Nov 2017

Blue has always been a popular colour for kid's bedrooms, from pastel and dusky blues for a restful environment, to bold and bright blues for a themed space.

Using Resene paints, these parents stuck to modern (but still fun) blues for their boys' bedrooms... ensuring that as they grow up they'll still love the colour.

From a mural of snowy mountains to a Scandi-inspired toddler's room, here are their inspiring ideas.

Snowy mountains

Snowy mountains

Deb Phillips and her husband gave themselves a deadline of one week to complete this snowy mountain mural for their son's bedroom.

Despite the tight turnaround, they've done a beautiful job, painting the mountains in (from lightest to darkest) Resene Bali Hai, Resene Wavelength, Resene Madison, Resene Spinnaker and Resene Bunting. The snow caps are painted in Resene Apache and Resene Gold Dust. The background colour is Resene Blue Night. 

The fun, intrepid theme continues in the rest of the bedroom, with a road tripping VW print and walls painted in Resene Bali Hai. The door and trims are painted in Resene Alabaster.

Big boy's room

When Cherie Martin's son asked for a 'big boy's room', she was keen for it to be a bedroom makeover that would last into his teenage years. He also asked for blue walls, choosing Resene Quarter Powder Blue. Cherie and her husband chose Resene Alabaster for the woodwork and ceiling.

Cherie's husband did all the work himself during the school holidays (he's a teacher) and their son is beyond pleased with his new bedroom. The walls are painted in Resene Quarter Powder Blue. The woodwork and ceiling are painted in Resene Alabaster.

Scandi-inspired

With a new baby on the way, Tessa Simpson needed to free up the nursery, so she decided to transform the very drab spare room into a space for her toddler to both sleep and play. She used Resene Blue Moon for the walls, adding spark and energy into a room that was once dull and dark. 

Her friends and family can't believe the difference it's made painting the walls in Resene Blue Moon. And when it came to styling the bedroom, Tessa was inspired by Scandinavian design, sourcing a lot of things from businesses that she follows on Instagram.
