I can’t believe I have yet to share the DIY Colorful Modern Boys Superhero Room reveal for my youngest little. With three boys, one of them is always coming into a stage while another is leaving a phase of growing up. When I had my first two, I was totally on top of my design game. I mean, come on—I had their toddler rooms planned before their first birthdays! When the third little guy came along, I’ve definitely been in slow-mo! Well, here it is friends…the last toddler room that I will design for one of my own, and I love that little noosh had so much to say about the components of the design.
It’s been a few years since we moved into our house and I still have one million project to finish!!! I started to refresh my middle little’s room which you can see HERE & I am still working on my oldest dude’s room.
When we moved in we ditched his crib and opted for a junior-sized bed—a tad bigger than a toddler bed but a smidge smaller than a twin. This room is pretty tiny, so it was the perfect choice for right now. The older two have never really had much of a care as to how they wanted their rooms, but this little guy has an obsession with ALL things superhero. He wants superhero EVERYTHING, which in design chat is somewhat of a theme nightmare to me. It’s not because I don’t think they are awesome, but I’ve just never been one for character themes. So my goal was to design a superhero toddler room that spoke both of our love languages.
My inspiration for the room came from the these simple, modern prints I found on allposters.com—they incorporate the perfect amount of theme to please a picky toddler and a stubborn mama.
Next, can we talk about this AHHHH-MAZING lightning bolt marquee from Saw & Steel???!!!! I it would be perfect for above his bed—so cute, right?
Other than a theme for a room, I have always thought it’s important to include little elements of things my kids love, whether it be literal or implied. My little Bennett is not only obsessed with superheroes, but he also has a love for rainbows. I spotted this darling little rainbow pillow at Target for $3! Yes friends, three bucks, and for that price, it was a must and the perfect little element to add to his bed.
For the nightstand, I picked up this cute metal cabinet from IKEA—it’s the perfect pop of green and a great piece for him to store all of his little treasures in.
One of my favorite elements in the space is the wall detail. I wanted to add some interest to the wall with some vinyl decals and paint detail. I used colors from his favorite superheroes and came up with this fun graphic design. The blue represents Captain America, the green is for Hulk and the black dots are for Wolverine.
For the stripes, I used Scotch Blue painter’s tape and wall paint, and for the dots, I used black vinyl dots that I cut from my Cricut machine.
The minute I finished the wall, my little guy could totally see my vision and LOVED it! Mission accomplished! So here is one last look at how his superhero toddler room turned out.
