For whatever reason, I find it particularly difficult to design a boy's bedroom. Do any of you feel the same way? That being said, if I ever happen upon a clipping of a boy's bedroom that I like (rare), I quickly throw it into my files for inspiration. Sometimes one just needs a place to start!
Here are some of my all-time favorites for "little boys" and "big boys" alike:
Serena and Lily is an excellent source for inspiration when it comes to boy bedrooms. Strangely, I usually don't love their girly rooms, but they rarely miss a beat when it comes to the little guys. Both of these are perfect for the 10+ age group.
Totally swooning over this recent feature over at Design*Sponge. What a brilliant idea to create a play area on the lower bunk! I know my son would love a "secret" place to play and I'd love the option to cover up the mess with the slide of a curtain:)

A stupendous design for your "explorer". Highlights: the shade, the mobile, and the well-placed colorful accents.
Perfect for the Pez-lovin' boy...whether young or tween. I like the versatility of this room as it could easily transition from 4-year-old to 12-year-old with a few touches. Surprised at how much I like the combination of chocolate brown and red.
