2 rocking boys rooms

06 Sep 2016

If it's looking time to transform the little trooper's nursery into a 'big kids' bedroom, it can be as easy as switching up the paint colours and bringing in a few larger pieces of furniture. These rooms go a step further, with creative ideas and fun Resene colour combos. 

Although the bedrooms belong to boys, there's no reason for girls not to be inspired. And when you're ready to go, pick up a Resene KidzColour colour chart – it's filled with colours that the kids will love, from pretty pastel to bold primaries, as well as funky metallics. Read all about how to get the kids involved in decorating here

Eleven-year-old Ethan had free reign to design his bedroom scheme. He chose a feature wall of Resene Hyperactive, background wall in Resene Half Rakaia and ceiling in Resene White. "We were a bit unsure of his choices, but it works and looks fabulous!" says mum Alina. 

None

He discovered his wallpaper amongst the many options available at their local Resene ColorShop and settled on 'Dogs in Frames'.

The orange chair is a nice choice, tying the scheme together. Perhaps Ethan has a future in interior design!

Nine-year-old Christian asked for a sports room when his family moved into their new house.

His furniture was red, black and white, so mum Monnie chose Resene Roadster, Resene Black and Resene Alabaster for the bedroom walls. 

The wall of framed cars were from a calendar that Monnie framed up.

None

A racetrack zips up the wall, painted in Resene Black and Resene Alabaster (for the tracks). 

His mum superglued old die cast cars to individual nails, which can be pinned into the wall and rearranged, so Christian can create his own story as he plays.

None

This wall is painted in Resene Roadster and features photos of Christian and his favourite pieces of sports gear. Monnie had them printed onto canvas.

None

And of course there's a basketball hoop in this sports-loving kid's bedroom.
