This adorable boy’s bedroom offers an updated and refined country farm decor style.  It combines rustic elements, like the dark floorboards and ebony stained dresser, with refined touches, like the tufted upholstered headboards.  The ivory colored walls, cream curtain panels, and beige rug produce a neutral palette, allowing the plaid bed linens to make a prominent statement.  

This is an ideal scheme for a boy’s bedroom that you want the kids to grow into.  It can also double as a guest bedroom when needed.  Your guests will feel like they are staying at a sophisticated lodge retreat!

Turquoise, Teal, or Aqua, no matter the name you use, this color remains a popular trend today, in hues from light to dark.  When considering aqua decorating ideas for your home, aqua may be best used to create pops of color in your living room, dining room, bedroom, or kitchen.  In the kitchen, you could place the wicker chairs around a beautiful neutral colored table under the aqua chandelier, allowing all the pops of color to speak for themselves.  Alternatively, we could imagine using some of these pieces in a living room.  The airiness of the color provides a soothing sense of calm, all the while, providing beauty.  Aqua blues also making a soothing bedroom choice in more muted tones.
