Cool black and white boys rooms with pops of colour

black and white decor ideasWhat look do you go for in a child’s bedroom?  Black and white, bold colour, pastels?  Modern, vintage, minimal?  There are so many choices and styles out there to decorate a kids room that it’s hard to choose one style above all others.  I keep flitting from colour choices and styles I like and change my mind every day but eventually end up coming back to the whole monochrome Scandinavian vibe.  That is monochrome with pops of colour.  A little colour just makes the black and white even more dramatic and with a monochrome backdrop, no colour is off limits.  I can sometimes neglect the boys on this blog as some readers have pointed out to me recently (sorry!) so today I’m sharing some of the coolest black and white boys rooms with bold pops of colour:

Accenting with red in a boys room – how striking does that look?  Bright red is such a bold colour so you don’t need much of it and it looks so great.  Red is a pretty under-used colour in kids rooms and while a lot of red can be too much, just a little accent like this works so well especially in a black and white room.

decorating boys rooms with yellow

Hello yellow!  Another great accent colour for a black and white boys room.  The yellow is used very sparingly with lots of grey and it ends up looking so stylish.  Also I love the paper flower decorations in this boys room – would you consider these for a boys room?

Charming, playful and delightful are the words that come to mind looking at this lucky boys room.  The black and white in this room has been complimented with soft pastel tones.  Again the pastel doesn’t take over but just adds that little pop of colour.

In this bold black and white boys room, green is the accent colour.  But rather than stick to one shade of green, they’ve used a range.  I love the addition of an indoor plant which not only provides colour but is a lovely addition to a kids room.  Looking after a plant is a great little responsibility to give to a child, no?

I’m loving this cool shared boys room.  Shared by toddler and older brother it sticks very much to the black and white theme but with a hint of blue.  Using coloured furniture is a great way to introduce a little colour in to a black and white room.  And colours don’t always have to be bright – the muted blue here looks to perfect with the black and white.
