We love her outdoor adventure themed boys room that just wouldn't be complete without a play teepee. A little boy's dream!

A canopy over her little guys bed creates a great little hideaway. And a pennant banner on the wall compliments the canopy.
Each piece of decor in this room, from the pillows to the framed art and the twinkling lights, all portrays a perfect little boy's room.
LITTLE BOYS TENT BED
This tent bed in Amy's son's bedroom from The Folk Child Stories, looks like the perfect place to snuggle into. Children find security in small places.
Think back to when you were a kid and how much you love draping a sheet over chairs and hanging out inside. This sweet bed does the same thing. It helps make a child feel secure. What a good idea!
What a perfect Scandinavian decor look that Amy's created. Clean lines, and minimalist, yet it doesn't sacrifice any fun that you anticipate in a child's bedroom.
TODDLER BOY FORT BED WITH SLIDE
Tess, over at T_R_ESCHIC, has the ultimate fort bed for her toddler. It even has a slide for him to wake up and slide into the day on. And there's enough storage space under the bed for things like toy storage. A raised bed like this is an easy way to provide storage solutions for all sorts of items.
The baby blue and white color scheme she has chosen is refreshing. It's a great way to keep her little guy little, and yet she has created a big boy space for him. There are so many fun things going on here.
We love the fresh vibe coming from this little guys room!
STARRY THEMED EASY DIY LITTLE BOY ROOM DECOR IDEAS
Little Noah's room has a fun starry theme to it. Carina, from The House We Wished For, has selected a great color pallet of navy, gray, and white.

Bunk-beds are a sure way to get him one step closer to those starry skies.

CLUBHOUSE BOYS ROOM
Hello It's Shannon has a super cool room for her little boy. The color scheme is black and white is classic.
His little clubhouse bed with a rustic wooden roof is perfect for a little guy's bedroom. Here is another example of making a little boy feel secure at night. The room and the bed on the floor help him sleep soundly.
Cross and triangle wall decals, as she used, are also a great way to add some focal points. What a wonderful way to show off his cute decor.
How Do You Decorate a Small Boys Bedroom?
When planning your little boy's room get on your knees and look around the room. This allows you to see his bedroom from his angle.
Put the things that are important to him at your eye level, especially what he needs to reach. Adding a personal touch is a simple way to reflect your boy's personality. A bed with a canopy or a roof that brings the height down to make him feel safe.
Another trick is painting his ceiling a color. Sometimes a color on the ceiling will make the room feel cozier and smaller.
What Color Should I Paint My Sons Room?
You can paint a little boys room any color, but here are a few tips on color.
Bright colors are more stimulating, which is good until it is nap time. I recommend using a calmer color for the room and accent with brighter colors on accessories and bedding.
Darker colors make a room feel smaller but a dark room might make a child feel frightened. If you love dark colors paint all the walls a lighter color and then add an accent wall in a darker color.
Natural colors are great for little boys rooms. Agreeable gray and repose gray are two nice colors for any boys room. These colors just about match anything which. makes decorating much easier.
