wallpaper for a boy’s room

Wallpaper is a fun way to add color, pattern and the personality of the child in their room.  My son Henrik (his room is pictured above) loves to dress up as a pirate and enjoys playing with ships and their cargo.  The Out To Sea Map wallpaper by Ralph Lauren is perfect for him.  The nautical map is graphic and colorful making it easy to chart his next pirate adventure.

Here are a few more of my favorites for a boy’s room.

1.  The Car Enthusiast.  Vintage toy cars make up this colorful wallpaper from Studio Ditte

2.  The Adventurer.  Inspired by sea charts of old the Pirate Seas wallpaper from Hibou Home is full of sea monsters and ship wrecks.

3.  The Animal Lover.  Graphic silhouetted animals live in harmony on Ferm living’s Animal Farm wallpaper.

4.  The Cowboy.  Cowboys and cacti are a plenty on this classic Cath Kidston Cowboy wallpaper.

  8. Meta,

    Found your site just today and I’m very happy to have done so! Can you tell me a bit about that shelf in your son’s room? Did you make it or purchase it? Thank you!

      Hello Jennifer,

      Thank you. The bookshelf is David Netto’s cub collection. This was a lower priced collection than what he normally sells, unfortunately he doesn’t make this collection anymore and has sold his company to Maclaren.
      Here’s a link to some of his furniture: http://www.modernnursery.com/DavidNettoCollection.html. The ship painting is a thrifted item.

      Best of luck!
