Vintage Industrial Boys Bedroom

• 16 May 2011

































While I've never been a fan of Restoration Hardware's Baby & Child concept, I was recently taken back by one particular layout with a vintage, industrial theme. There are so many details to love--from the wall art, to the lighting, to the sweet globe on the shelf. It's such a fabulous look and let's be honest, attractive, well-designed boy's rooms are hard to find! (check out a couple more fabulous boy's bedrooms here if you'd like).

You can view the entire RH bedroom here (that bedding!).

Hi Steph - I love the latest RH catalog, especially the industrial playroom. I wrote about it on my blog last week, but I emphasized how much more fun it would be to find the *real* items at a flea market, instead of paying the crazy prices at RH. But either way, I am nuts about that industrial look!

I am a huge fan of the vintage industrial look. Especially when actual vintage pieces are used.

Would love this for one of my kids bedrooms the next time I redo.

I agree with you both--it would be more fun to find the items with a similar feel at a flea market or antique store. But maybe buy the bedding new...:)

Um, yes! I'm really digging that very cool 'English' student desk! I wonder if it would work for an adult, do you think? So awesome

I recently came across some vintage reproduction national park posters on ebay which I think would be great in a boys bedroom.

They also have vintage travel pennants which would be charming as well.

CMN...yes!

Really? I think this is horribly depressing. The industrial laundry bins for toys and the sad monochromatic grey...it makes me think of an orphanage. No thanks. The girls' rooms are a little better but I don't know any little girl who would be thrilled with an all-beige bedroom.

Anon II: I guess we all have different opinions on style--I think these pieces would be fabulous in a 10/12 year-old boys room. But then again, I'm a fan of anything with an industrial feel. I agree with you on the rest of the catalog--it's boring, depressing and blah. But this one room I like :)
