MB HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, June 12, 2012 1 IT'S TIME FOR ADVENTURE JAZZING UP BOYS' ROOMS Susan Redman Details: Call Stix & Stones Baby on 0424 303 082 or visit stixandstones.com.au; Love Mae on (02) 6677 9225 or visit lovemae.com.au. This Kidz Kastle play tent from Stix & Stones Baby is $259. Suspend it over a bed to inspire legendary dreams. BOYS BEDROOMS This Scales and Chasing Dragons doona cover and pillowcase, $229.95, is from Love Mae. IT'S like going on a boy's own adventure when you decorate a little man's bed- room. Here are five ideas that are bang-on trend. REV-HEAD From formula one racing car beds to fire truck bed boxes and Thomas The Tank En- gine furniture, this is a style for boys on the move. Fill the room with lots of options for storage so that the miles of train and racetrack, not to mention small cars and other toy vehicles you'll constantly find all over the floor, can be quickly scooped up and stored away. Fire-engine red and racing-car green are good strong colours for walls, cur- tains and bed linen. Team the red with pale blue and cream, and the green with chocolate brown and sunny orange. KING OF THE CASTLE Knights of the realm will relate to a room honouring the stuff of legend. Inspire dreams of courage and chiv- alry with framed illustrations of King Arthur's exploits cut out from vintage storybooks, and hang them on the wall. Tents are all the go, too, especially in royal blue stripe with red trim. Hang one over the head of your prince's bed. PIRATES COVE Add some mystery and swashbuckling fun to a nauti- cal theme in a room dedicated to adventure on the high seas, or even in the jungle. Paste maps large and small on the walls and make sure there is a globe and telescope on hand. Jewel-bright colours are perfect for such a room. Introduce them by way of tropical motifs and exotic animals and birds. HAPPY CAMPER A boy will think he's on vacation in this fun room. Go wild and choose wallpapers printed with bird motifs, big game animals or tree trunks. You might also choose comfy plaid patterns, flannel fabrics, and log or pine beds, all of which will no doubt remind your son each night of what he might be doing each day if he didn't have to go to school -- hiking, boating or fishing. SPACE INVADER Tech heads will love going geek in this room filled with the latest gadgetry. Borrow from an industrial look for grown-ups with tin and dis- tressed metal vintage finds, but add some sleek stuff, too. Use short filing cabinets for bedside tables and metal dr- awers as shelving. Keep a monochrome palette but in- ject bright shots of neon. Beds that fold away or chairs that evoke the '70s ethos of 2001: A Space Odyssey will fit right in here. Seen any great ideas?
