Charming Mint Green Boy’s Room

February 8, 2012

Well what do you know!? I’m posting children’s rooms on decor8! ha ha! It’s a big deal for me to do this and if you blink you’ll miss them but it’s fun to go off the beaten track now and then and show something new. We tend to post things on our blogs that we feel attached to in one way or another and while I love children I think not having any does make me less inclined to think about their room design. Perhaps that will change in the future!

Charming Mint Green Boy's Room

After posting the sweet pink girl’s room, Australian interiors and lifestyle photographer Tara Pearce sent in some great photos of a little boy’s room in cool mint that she asked me to consider posting. A mint green boy’s room? Oh yes please! Lenny is two-years-old and loves his new IKEA bed and minty green walls. His room has many vintage and handmade pieces and his little creative zone made me smile so I have to share it… Plus I can’t show a girl’s room and skip the little guys!

    Great looking room. Love the ‘cool mint’ color – soft, but masculine. Also really love the vintage feel and the floor are amazing.

    So pretty! I love those dinosaur cushions on the bed, too… incredibly cute :)

    Love the palette – greens of any shade are my favorite – and the little boy is adorable!

    I really love the combination of the mint green, white trim and warm wood tones. I have been taking note of children’s rooms and nurseries lately without really meaning to. Some of them have great design and ideas for storage that can be incorporated into grown up spaces too.

    Don’t mean to rain on parades, I like it for the main part (especially the mint colour), yet find it to be a touch ‘safe’ and predictable?

    I absolutely love the chest of drawers (or sideboard?) in his room. There’s no way I’d put in my son’s room – I’d keep that stunning piece all to myself ;-)

    Love the minty green walls, perfectly paired with navy blue and white.

    I would not mind seeing more rooms for kids. :-) We will be moving in a few months and my kids (a girl and a boy) will FINALLY both get their own room. So I am on a hunt for ideas right now. :-)

    The green colour is lovely, especially with the danish chest of drawers against it. Keeps the room feeling warm even though its a cooler colour.

    Hi… I’m trying to pick a cool mint color for my baby boys room… and I love this! It’s always so overwhelming looking at paint samples. Do you happen to remember what brand and color name this was? It would be so helpful! Thanks :)
