Boys love the great outdoors, but how to we bring the Boy Scout theme into boy's bedroom décor? The thoughts of marshmallow s'mores over a crackling fire, fishing, bugs under big logs, pitching a tent, and getting into mischief is more excitement than our boys would want to leave. Bring their love of camping indoors with camping themed room décor.



Camping and rustic décor go hand in hand; start with the most important furniture piece. Bunk beds are not only a great way for boys to share space and a room, or to have an extra bed for friends, but they really make the best tents when the kids want to pretend. Many bunk beds are styled with the rustic lodge décor in mind, and will be made out of soft rounded pine logs rather than modern metal or planks.



Red is synonymous with picnicking, and picnicking is synonymous with camping. Red and red gingham can be incorporated all over the room beginning with the bedding. Red sheets and pillows will look amazing next to the natural pine bunk bed, and emphasizes the red accent colour that will be incorporated throughout the room. Add a few extra throws, pillows, and floor cushions around the room in case the boys get a hankering to camp out on the floor.



Painting walls is a quick and affordable way of transforming a room, and a soft light green or two-toned light green and pale blue or tan will pull in the tree green and nature inspired decor. Gingham patterned checker red curtains pull together the cabin and picnic feel. Designate a small camping style wood table in a corner for crafts and games. A red checker patterned tablecloth and toy lantern will top it off!



Building a window seat trunk like boys use in summer camps will provide extra storage for toys and provide a place to sit and read. A bench cushion, and varying red, white, and green pillows and cushions will add to the luxury lodge appeal.



In many cabin retreats, you will notice that decorators have included bears all throughout the cabin as if the bear was a staple in rustic décor. Black and brown bears really set the fun camp tone in a boy's room, and the natural colours are great accents to the green and red already used. Fun bear wall décor can be found at many online lodge décor retailers for great prices.



A green or read area rug will be enough to finish off the kid room decor. Happy camping!
