When decorating boys' rooms, it’s easy to fall into the same style as everyone else. Much like fashion, the interiors on offer for boys tend to be fairly generic. We’re all for embracing the classic staples that provide a great base to see your little boy out of the nursery and through to pre-teen years. But it’s fun to then layer in some unique elements to create a playful space that's as individual as your little man is....
Our editor-at-large Emily Armstrong has rounded up 11 unique decorating items that will help you inject some originality to the obligatory navy stripe + dinosaur + star that’s found almost everywhere. The key, as ever, is all in the mix: stick to the classics for the base of the room and have some fun with the rest. And when you find a unique piece that doubles as storage, well that’s a decorating win/win!
