Vintage Sports Boys Room


A big boy room with modern colors, and vintage sports decor.

Design Inspiration

The brand new Caden Lane Boutique Collection! My son's previous room was designed around the Classic Collection by Caden Lane, and he had cars & trucks on the wall. When we moved, he wanted a little more "big boy" of a room, complete with sports decor. I think this is just enough sports decor to satisfy him, without making it a "themed" room.

Decorating Style

Color. Clean lines. And I love it when there's more to a wall than just a solid color.

Project Details

The stripes around the top of the room were painted in one day. All you need is a yard stick (easier to hold than a measuring tape), pencil, and blue painters tape... mark however many inches you want the stripes to be, and then use your marks as a guide when you are plaing the tape on the wall. And ALWAYS use a brush when painting between blue tape - it will help keep your lines straight, and keep the paint from leaking under the tape. (Roller brushes are horrible for that!)

Everything in this nursery is available online at

If you don't have a nook in the room you can accent with orange paint... try painting an entire wall orange! I love it when 3 walls are one color, and 1 wall (hopefully the main focal wall) is a pop of a different color. It helps break up the square-ness of the room, and add interest! Happy painting!

    I know a lot of grown-up men who would love to have this room. Look at those skateboards! And the color scheme is really fit for a growing boy.
