40 Inspirational Ideas for Boys Rooms

It’s a good thing my girls are so sweet and cute – I always imagined myself as a mother to lots of little boys. 🙂 But here I am with three girls, and lots and LOTS of inspiration images for boys rooms!

Maybe someday I’ll have some personal application for these, but in the meantime, I hope you can use them:

    Painting your child's doors (even their closet doors) an accent color is such a fun idea, especially if the doors feel in the way or front and center. Make them a design element.
