Bring your space across the finish line for the win!
Coming across the finish line for the victory is Speed Racer! And his bedding and bedroom decor is a winner too!
This is a great idea for a design scheme, not just because your son loves race cars, but because of the bright colors and crisp graphics. Whether you go with the movie posters or the classic TV cartoon images, it’s sure to be a great looking room by the time you’re done!
It’s too bad the recent movie didn’t do as well as it could have because we’d be seeing a lot more in this theme out there if it had. I had such great hopes, too. Actually, they ought to come out with a new version of the cartoon, although – would it be as much fun if we weren’t able to make fun of the stiff way they talk?
Speed Racer Bedding
The only styles still out there use the white and red of the Mach 5, along with two shades of bright blue in the background. (It looks like an argyle in the set pictured here, but I’m sure it’s supposed to be a checkered flag.) There are a few yellow touches, but that’s the basic color scheme.

More To Go On The Bed
A couple of different sheet sets and a blanket you could use instead of a comforter or bedspread. Maybe. It might be a bit small for anything other than a toddler size. Oh, but you can easily use the pillows on any size bed – one square and one shaped like the Mach 5. Because nothing is cuddlier than a race car, right?
Most of the above designs focus on blue, blue and more blue. Which is fine, but maybe you’d rather use a different color. Simple. Just go with red and white like the Mach 5 or even a little yellow even though that’s the color of X’s car, then add in decor items to set the theme. You get a lot more options with different shades of blue and even some black that way.

Extra Touches for the Room
A few theme specific items like the tin sign of X and a cool car related switch plate that works perfectly with the rest. Oh, and a great decal set that let’s you dress up things like drawer fronts or lamp shades.
