Today, I’m sharing my three favorite color schemes for a boy’s bedroom. This is a follow on to my earlier post – My Three Favorite Color Schemes for a Girl’s Bedroom. The reason that I love these particular color combinations so much is that they can be used for any age – from toddlers to teenagers. For each color combination, I will show you several pictures to illustrate the range of looks you can achieve with these colors. Enjoy!
#1 Navy and Gray
This is my all-time favorite color scheme to use for a boy’s bedroom. I love the relaxing vibe that is created by pairing masculine navy with soothing gray. It’s also very neutral, so you can add any pop of color to it you choose, and it works with virtually any theme (planes, dinosaurs, sports, etc.). Add a little red or orange to create a more vibrant look…or mix in different colors throughout the years. This is a highly flexible color combination that will work for your son for years to come! Here are some great examples of this color scheme.
#2 Orange and Gray
This is probably not the first color combination that pops into your head when you think about boys bedrooms. But, that’s exactly why it’s in my number 2 spot. It combines neutral gray with outspoken orange to create an unique, yet masculine look. I especially love how these colors pair with wood! The trick is to use the orange sparingly. In other words, let gray take the lead, and use orange only as an accent and not as your main color. The following rooms have achieved the perfect balance of orange and gray.
#3 Navy and Green
This is a classic color combination for boys that has been used for years. The timeless pairing of navy and green works for both young boys and teens alike. Navy and green are both strong, masculine colors, so be sure to bring in lots of white or gray to tone them down a bit. This color combination can also work well in a gender-neutral bunk room, or even in a guest or master bedroom…food for thought! Here are some examples…
These make me want to decorate a boys room! Which color combination is your favorite? Or do you have a different favorite color scheme for a boy’s bedroom altogether?
