The Vroom Room

Vintage style with a common theme -- things that move -- brings a little boy's imagination to life in his bedroom. Cars, trains, airplanes, and more cover the space, making it a prime spot to play.

Vintage Photos

Vintage automobile ads hung symmetrically frame the bed and coordinate with the room's red, white, and blue color scheme.

Editor's Tip: Check local antique stores for old magazine ads for classic cars, pick frames in the same color to unify them, and hang the photos in your little boy's room.

Bright Bunk Beds

Bunk beds painted in fire-engine red match the color scheme and will function well throughout the years.

The Window Seat

The window seat is flanked by built-in cabinets for additional storage. Coordinating fabrics top it off -- the red seat cushion is edged with piping from the same striped fabric used for the window shades.

Ceiling Plane

A hanging plane is an unexpected and fun touch that also contrasts with the bright stripes on the walls.

Cheap Storage

Labeled magazine holders keep cabinets neat and tidy.

Editor's Tip: Cover inexpensive cardboard magazine holders in decorative paper to add any design you like to your child's stash of magazines, books, or art supplies.

Hands-Off Storage

High built-in shelving units offer a place for more fragile items, keeping them out of reach of little hands. Solid-color photo boxes store baby pictures and family memories.

Reading Area

The reading area includes a comfy chair, a side table, a lamp, and a container for books. The child-sized armchair can be swapped out later with a bigger version for teens.

Stuffed-Animal Storage

Wire baskets make a hassle-free home for stuffed animals. And a wheeled version means parents and kids can easily move the toys around the room.
