Marcus’ Big Boy Bedroom

Posted by on Sep 13, 2011 in Uncategorized | 6 comments

Here is Marcus’ big boy bedroom. One of my favorite rooms in the house.


I wanted to create a room for Marcus that was very functional and stylish at the same time. I also wanted the room to be a continuation of the style and decor of our home. So I opted for neutral tones, with lots of brown, white, beige, creams and then pops of colors here and there. I knew that if I used a neutral color palette I would not have problems creating and sourcing decor items for the space. 

The furniture is from IKEA. The bed is placed flushed with the dresser and a piece of stained maple wood lays on top to create a one-piece furniture that works really well for the space. We use the same stained maple wood at other places in the room to tie everything together. Having the bed against the wall makes the room more spacious and gives Marcus more areas for playing.


I created the wall canvasses, wallpaper, and acrylic bike décor so all the colors would work together with the adorable bedding by dwell studio. The bike décor is Marcus favorite piece of the room. The bright red acrylic really stands out. I guess I could say that the bike is also my favorite piece in the room.


I am very pleased with how it turned out. The room is bright, elegant, functional and fun.

    • Hi Sabrina.
      Thanks for the kind words.
      The rug is for Target, but I believe it is available only online.
      Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    • Hi Hannah,
      The shelf is from ikea. We added the dark wood that you see on top of the self to match the dark wood that we had in other places of the room.

      You can find the shelf here for $49.99:
