We're about to move into our own home. First one since movin back to the UK - currently in rented so we are really excited!
Being in rented means that DS bedroom has been really bland with magnolia walls and beige carpet. We want to give him a great room but are reluctant to do with blues as we feel they are a bit cold. Any suggestions for a good theme? He's 2.5.
Start with something your DS already owns that will be in his bedroom and work from there.
MY DS had a beautiful duvet cover, white with large colourful animals printed on it, the colours where just amazing so I used that as my inspiration when choosing colours for his room. It is not "themed" as such, as I don't like that style, but it is colourful, bright, functional, and most definately a 7 yr old boy's room! Everyone comments on it.
I love decorating children's rooms. I agree that using one special existing thing is a good start. Colourful bedding/rug/blind or curtains is a good way to add colour. Also think about lighting, perhaps get him some coloured LED string lights, and a cheerful bedside light - our DSs have a globe light and LED elephant string lights.
Wall stickers are a great way to make the room fun, there are some lovely ones available now:
