It has been a little while in between sharing my favourite new finds, so time for a quick update on all things I am loving right now! I am getting excited about making a few updates to the boys rooms at present, and as such have been crushing hard on teen boys rooms and all that makes them. Linen, prints, lamps and rugs, you name it, I’ve searched it. Let’s take a look at a few of my favourites!
The Builder’s Wife Loves – Teen Boys Room
Ok so the boy this room is for, is a bit cool. He prefers his room to be dark, and loves music. His preference would be to have nothing on the walls, and too have black everything, so I have pulled together a bit of a compromise of what I like and what I think he will enjoy.
Bedrooms in our house need to be functional spaces, in which the kids can escape, but also head off to study in especially as they are all nearing the final years of high school. Teen boys rooms can be particularly difficult as they tend to be quite self reflective, preferring their own company and while I wish for them always to be comfy in their space, it is important to me for it not to be oppressive.
A splash of colour is mandatory! As is mixing up the textures and adding plenty of layers. As you will see, I have kept the colour to a minimum, but have thrown a pretty loud rug to pop under the bed, adding the brightness I think the room will need to tone down all the dark colours.
- A. Royale Luxury Knit Throw Oceano – Canningvale
- B. Faux Fur Accent Stool – Pottery Barn
- C. Panda Wall Art – Pillow Talk
- D. Tall Artificial Palm Tree – Kmart
- E. Cactus Neon LED Wall Light – Hunting For George
- F. Butterfly Chair – Kmart
- G. Solid Oak & Metal Milo Side Table – Temple & Webster
- H. Blue Over Dyed Vintage Rug – Unique Rug Store
I love all of these items, and was surprised to find, when I showed the son he was happy with them too. Just enough colour to keep me happy without him being offended, and enough cool for him to keep his cred!
Textures and layers are really important to add the warmth to what could be a stark bedroom, all our kids love snuggling up with a warm throw rug and he will adore the stool.
As the kids near adulthood I am finding their rooms more challenging, finding the restraint they prefer doesn’t come naturally to me, but I am happy for fuss free, it means they might tidy their rooms from time to time 🙂
