Dear Jenny: Decorating Kids Rooms

Kids Room

Dear Jenny,

I have 5 year-old twin boys and I am pregnant again with another boy. While I’m happy to have another little buddy, I was sort of hoping to get to decorate a little girl’s room this time. Almost all my inspiration images are full of pink and frilly things! :)

I know you have all girls in your family, but I’m positive if you had a son, his room would be adorable and chic, like everything else you do. Would you mind sharing some of your boy room inspiration images? I’d love pictures of both big boy rooms and nurseries. I feel so bored and stuck.

Please and thank you!

Hi Carrissa! I would LOVE to help here! In fact, a huge chunk of my Dear Jenny emails are requests for kids room inspiration images, so I put together two HUGE slideshows on Babble.



Cookie Magazine

Here are my very favorite boys rooms

And here and my very favorite girls rooms!

I think it’s worth taking a look at both slideshows because there are design elements that could definitely work in gender specific or gender neutral rooms, depending on what you are looking for. Enjoy!! xx

  1. Hi Brittany,

    I've had luck in the past with eBay. The posters were used in French classrooms in the 50s and 60s I think. It's such a cool idea, I think. The photo I posted on Babble is from Sugar City Journal blog. You might try digging around a little on their site for more info.

    Good luck!

  2. Hey Jenny–
    The boy's room you labeled "Simple and Achievable"– do you happen to know the paint color on the wall? I currently have 6 colors on my wall, but THAT's the one I want (and can't seem to find).
    Thanks so much! I read your blog daily and love it.

  3. Hey, Jenny! Love the pics you posted! I'm thinking about putting my little boy and little girl in the same room, so I was looking at your pics with that in mind. Do you know how to find pictures like the ones on the very last girls room that you posted? I think you called them French Educational Posters. I googled that and did not get what I was looking for.

  4. Hi Becki!

    One of my very favorite neutral colors is BM Pale Oak. It's the perfect greige. You might want to try a sample of that color?

  6. Can you also post some pics on a combined boys and girls room? My 2yo daughter and my 6mo son are sharing a room. Would forever be grateful. Thank you!!

  7. Fun! My husband and I are expecting a little boy in Oct. I just started doing his room. You can check it out on my blog at http://www.nesteaglrock.com. Scroll down for some pics and if you look further down you'll see the concept board I put together as well. I think it's not overly boyish, and still kid friendly and fun.

  8. Hi, Jenny

    I just wanted to say I've been reading your blog for a loooong time and I really really like it, but all these links to Babble are getting kind of annoying and are taking the personality away from your own blog. I guess I would rather just scroll down through lots of advertising and read your posts in the end than you saying, well go there if you want to keep reading me. If I wanted to read Babble I would go there in the first place, just saying.

  9. do you have any more information on the pink star canopy room? i'd love to know the source at the least so i can do a little investigating. thanks!
