Boys Summer Bedroom Re-fresh

Boys Summer Bedroom (Sunny Side Up)

Happy Friday! We made it to the holiday weekend. YEA for that! I’m sharing a fun summer update in Kole’s bedroom today! The new Gap Kids line is out at Walmart and it’s honestly adorable. (You can only get this line at Walmart!) It makes me wish my girls were still little and I could deck their rooms in some of the cute bedding available! For my little buddy who isn’t so little anymore :) I choose this new blue comforter. I always like a solid color in his room with his striped rug and this comforter is casual, soft and comfortable. Just what I like for Kole. It comes in other colors too!

Kole still loves all things space (thank goodness because his room is a galaxy at this point.. ha) so I couldn’t resist these cute outer space sheets! Perfect for this space. I added this cute striped ombre pillow and done! A simple and fun bed perfect for my 12 year old little but not so little boy. :)

He’s heading into middle school in the Fall so I know sometime in the next couple of years we’ll have to make this space a little more grown up. I am cherishing the time we have left with all of his stuffed animals and light sabers!

And all things sun, planets and moons.

And black holes.

Black holes are a big topic of discussion at our house. :)

I aways love a throw at the end of a bed so I picked up this striped ombre throw too! It drapes beautifully over a chair (I know this because I had it in my living room for a week!) so a good option for a bedroom or living room.

The space sheets are cool and perfect for summer but I wanted something a little warmer for when it starts to cool off so I also picked up these t-shirt soft jersey striped sheets. They are so incredibly cozy and soft! They come in lots of colors too.

I can’t say no to a good stripe so these cute hand and bath towels landed in his bathroom. They look just like our pool towels so perfect for summer. :) They also come in green, pink and yellow!

We always go through kids’ closets in the summer! It’s the perfect time to organize them before we buy new school clothes. We donate clothes that are too small, clean out the drawers and shelves and then we are ready for a new school year!

Just not ready for my little but not so little boy to grow up. :)

  1. What an awesome looking room, Erin. I think I know a college sophomore who would love those sheets! She and my husband both share a love of space. You never know, Kole might end up in the aerospace industry and his decor is just prepping him. :) You have done an outstanding job keeping his room true to who he is and what he enjoys. And you are smart to let him be not so little little as long as you can. Kids grow up so fast anymore. And being a boy, he may keep those light sabers for some epic battles with his middle school buddies. Great job, Erin and enjoy your not so little young man. :)

    1. Ha ha.. I think I am prepping him for a career in aerospace! Without even knowing it. ;) I’m so happy you like his room! Definitely keeping this one little as long as possible. :) Thank you so much Jeanne! xo

  2. Hi Erin! My son is 11 years old and I love the industrial touches you used in Kole’s room. Where did you find the book shelf with pipes? I can’t find the bed at PB anymore :-(
