This past summer we moved my youngest son to his own bedroom. Today, I am sharing the makeover and some tween boy bedroom decor ideas!

Tween Boy Design Plan
If you have been following me, you might be remember I shared the design plan for our tween boy’s new bedroom earlier this year. My two boys have been requesting to have their own room. It was bittersweet to move them into their own rooms. I knew this meant no more late night talks in bed and all day wrestling sessions (okay, maybe that was a good thing!).
But once I started to work on the design plan, I started to get really excited about the project and the transition.
Here was the original plan and I think we stuck very closely to it!
There were several things we already owned from the design plan. Originally, we had an old oak dresser in the room but I swapped it out for the metal and wood chest of drawers. It is a lot more functional and fits well into a boy’s bedroom aesthetic.
The US National Parks wall sign was one of the first things I bought for the room.
We already had the metal organizer caddy, a Homegoods find several years ago.
The fun part was mixing in a few new items with the things we gathered from around the house.
I partnered with Panhandle Mercantile for the personalized wood name sign! These signs can be customized by font, paint color and wood stain. The best part about these signs is that they are incredibly light weight! I was able to use sticky tack to hang the letters.
Since we do not have a headboard, this sign really helps to elevate the space.
The comforter set, which washes so well, is from Target. It is lightweight but also really fluffy. So it actually looks like a duvet cover.
Small Gallery Wall
The angled walls of the room are perfect for adding in little details like a small gallery wall. All signs but the Roller Coaster Print were ones we already had at home.

I honestly think this is one of my favorite rooms in our house. It can sometimes be easier to decorate a small space than a big open room. The room is really cozy. One thing about small rooms is that you have to be careful with how much stuff and decor you have in the room.
This wood and metal bookcase is perfect for small spaces. It offers a lot of vertical space and it takes up virtually no floor space!
We were able to corral all of my tween boy’s books and collectibles on the shelves.
Love Vs Design Wallpaper
Right before I started the bedroom project, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Love Vs Design wallpaper. The timing was perfect as I was able to pick out wallpaper for my son’s room. Love Vs Design has over a 100 wallpaper designs that can be customized. It is a little overwhelming. Each style can be customized to different colors too. So, the possibilities for each design are really endless.
I ordered five different wallpaper samples to choose from. Each sample is only $6, so it is really worth it to try out a few styles. The samples are a generous size so you can put them on the wall and really get a good sense of the pattern.
My son’s favorite pattern was Abstract Mountains, which, I think, also looks like waves. We are really happy we went with the navy pattern. It makes for a statement look in the room.
The Love Vs Design wallpaper was very easy to hang. I have done several peel and stick wallpaper projects over the years and this one was by far the easiest! The wallpaper panels come numbered so that you do not have to worry about lining up the patterns to match. It is very durable and it does not tear easily.
We were really happy with how this project turned out and I think it really makes the room!

This was a really fun project and I am happy for my son to get his own room for the first time in his life. I think it is really important to create a cozy and comfortable space for kids to be able to retreat. It is also nice to have a room that the kids are happy to play in on their own or with their friends.
Here is a list of the products that we used to create the tween boy bedroom!
Personalized Name Sign: Panhandle Mercantile (Each sign is customized by color, size and font!)
Metal Chest of Drawers: Homegoods
Gray and White Striped Comforter: Target
