Boys Bedroom Ideas – E’s Big Boy Room Reveal

boys bedroom ideas

Awhile back we transitioned E’s bedroom from a toddler room into a big boy’s bedroom.  I spent months on Pinterest looking at boys bedroom ideas.  I wanted E’s room to be toddler friendly, fit in with traditional style of our house, have a touch of southwest flare, and be appropriate for him as he grows.  I knew it would take a lot to achieve all those goals, but in the end I think we did it.

We live in the desert and have amazing views of the arroyos and mountains, so for our interior decor we try to highlight the views with colors and textures that make the inside and outside seamlessly merge.  For E’s room, I chose a sand color for the walls and went with a color palette of browns and whites.  His toddler room was done in white and blue, so it was quite the change.

We found his piggy bank at Target.  It’s designed to be a bottle top collection, but I love it as a piggy bank.

We wanted the things on his shelf to remind me of who he is.  The pecans are from his grandfather’s pecan farm.  The wooden car was made by my husband.  He does wood working as a hobby and makes so many beautiful things for our home!  The statue of liberty was added because out of all our vacations E says his favorite vacation spot is NYC.

My husband and I are nerds at heart.  We love to read!  When E was born we made the rule that he could have as many books as he wanted.  Anytime we are at a store, on vacation, or passing a news stand and he asks for a book, our answer is “yes”.  We did a post on the ten best books for toddlers here.

E’s bed, dresser and night stand are from Ikea.  I love their no fuss approach to furniture.

My husband built this kitchen for E.  It is my absolute favorite thing that he has ever built!  There so much love and time put in to it.  E loves it and always plays cook and picnic when he has friends over.  Isn’t it a gorgeous piece?!

All of his kitchen accessories are from the Melissa and Doug collection.

I’ve recently discovered how amazing fur rugs are.  We have four in our house and I’m planning on getting even more.  They make the wood floors seem so much cozier and E loves to lay on them while he plays.

I’m so happy with his room!  The decor can easily be matured as he grows older, so that the expensive pieces can be used for years.
