Vintage travel twist for a teen boy bedroom

teen boy bedroom with retro travel theme

Summer is wrapping up, so people are getting out for that last quick vacation before school starts back up for the kids.

And why “staycations” tend to be more in the picture thanks to the price of gas, there’s something about hitting the open road, traveling the dusty highway that appeals to Americans. We live in such a big country with so many out of the way corners, adventure is just sure to be waiting.

The lure of adventure found traveling is a bit of what I was going for here. Lots of antiquey, rustic decor items, lots of travel and transportation related touches, all in shades of gray and tan. I really tried to keep things as toned down as possible, but who can resist that green highway sign?

And if you like that magazine rack, you should check out the other Route 66 from Wilco. Lots of cool signs and other storage options that would also work in this room.
