toddler boys bedroom design

I recently had the honor of designing the cutest little boy’s room! Being a mom of three girls, I had so much fun decorating for a boy! And let me tell you — there is the most adorable décor out there for a toddler boy bedroom! I saved SO many pieces I fell in love with and ultimately what suited this little guy’s space and interest best.

My client’s son is three years old. She is moving him into the current guest room and converting his current room into a nursery. They are also transitioning him to a big boy bed, so lots of changes happening for this growing family!

Design Process

I started by taking one of the photos she sent me and creating a blank slate:

It’s important to know how my client wants the room to function. She shared that she definitely wanted a twin bed, dresser, toy storage, and a full-length mirror if space permitted. She wanted to leave the ceiling fan and blinds as is but add light blocking curtains. Her little boy loves cars, superheroes, and the color blue, so I wanted to incorporate this while still making it a space he can grow into for years to come.

We worked together to find pieces she loved and ended up with this finished toddler boy bedroom design. I mean, come on…! *all the heart eyes*


I chose this solid wood Jenny Lind bed because, not only is it beautiful but they are known for how well they are made. Once I saw this black one was back in stock, I had to add it! The sheets (which aren’t pictured but are linked) are so stinkin’ cute and tie in perfect with this reversible GAP Home comforter. The black floating shelves are perfect for displaying his favorite books, which he can cozy up and read in his little reading nook.

These super affordable cubbies and baskets provide the hidden toy storage she’s looking for, and I incorporated his love of cars with these adorable watercolor prints and a fleece throw blanket. *Note: Cubbies like this are my favorite for kids rooms! They are a simple way to tidy up inevitable mess!


Pictured above is my design for the wall opposite the bed. We went thru a few rug options before choosing this medium-pile diamond rug. I wanted something that would be soft yet easy to clean with a toddler (pure white was ruled out, lol). Add this dark navy dresser, a full-length mirror (mountable for safety reasons), and large wire basket for added storage and this wall is now functional. The mustard yellow lamp adds additional light I like to add additional light options besides the ceiling light for a dimmer brightness, especially in a kid’s room when you are trying to wind them down for the night. And I just couldn’t pass up this sweet sign given that he is a new big brother.

All in all I am so pleased with how this design came out, and I can’t wait to see how it all comes together!
