9 Unexpected Cool Color Schemes for Boys' Rooms

Think about a classic color palette to get a young boy’s bedroom, and you probably imagine navy and denim blues, reds, khakis and tans, and dark purple accents. And while there’s a reason so many boys’ spaces default to those hues (they’re cheery yet masculine, and they function for all ages), a anticipated palette can feel equally as appropriate. Have a look at the brand new, fun cases below.

Cocoa beige and brown punch this up lively boy’s space. The zebra-print rug and striped wall treatment are child friendly yet sophisticated, and they will still seem up-to-date when the stuffed creatures give means to sports equipment and electronics.

Here’s just another variation on that same color scheme. Because it’s limited to only 1 wall, the robot-print wallpaper would be easy to strip and then replace with a more grownup pattern in the future.

Flea Market Sunday

Hot orange arouses this otherwise impartial boy’s bedroom. Orange is a great color for kids — it’s youthful and energetic, but not at all childish.

This orange, gray and white palette provides a sports theme a chic twist. It is proof that you don’t need to drench your room in the colours of your favorite team to show your soul.

Red and khaki appear fresh all over again with a liberal dose of black. Mod accents, such as these pendant lights, are usually winners in a kids’ space — they have an inherent whimsy that matches young ones nicely.


This chocolate and citron palette takes its cue from tennis balls. The round accent pillows are an especially enjoyable signature.


Tangerine, safety-cone orange and neon green combine for a zesty, zippy toddler’s space. When he’s older, the cars-and-trucks wall mural could be painted, leaving only the tangerine stripe. Swaths of whitened retain these extreme colours from overwhelming the space — a need for parents who want their own little ones to repay at nighttime and naptime.

Emerald green and peacock blue refresh this unique boy’s bedroom.

Envision living

Peacock blue accent walls provide definition to this large, airy space. Together with whitened, the color creates the sense of a seaside escape. Keeping the toy vehicles large-scale elevates them from feeling too juvenile.

Brilliant greens and dabs of black wake up an otherwise simple bedroom. The Warhol-inspired portrait on the wall is a cheeky touch.
