Boy Bedroom Make-Over

I am redoing my boys room.  Have you tried to decorate for boys lately?  I want their room to be classic, clean lined, simple, non primary colored, not too sport related, and pretty neutral.  It's been a challenge! Do you think the burgandy and dark brown version of this comforter could create a similar effect?  With these sheets?  I am in love with these sheets!  They are so cute and classic.  I may have to wash them 89 times before I feel they are soft enough but for $15 a set I'm down with it!

My sister just put this taupe drum shade on a pewter lamp base in my nephew's bedroom and it is SHARP!  It's more earthy linen brown than is showing up in this photo.

Do you think I could put a clip on lamp on each boys headboard?  The slats are Mission Style.

Striped panels on the windows with a touch of brown and red to tie it all in.

Whatdya' think?  I'd take any ideas!

My boys have a brown and red room. Those quilts from PB are great. I hung framed razorback posters on the wall and it all tied together great!

We are in the process of getting rid of the trains and making JD's more big kid, too. I like your ideas! Esp the color scheme.

JD is leaning towards more sports...which I'm going with, although I prefer the cleaner look. We have a couple of cool pennants like in your picture...like how they are hung!

Target has some good, clean-lined lamps for cheap.
