Oftentimes a parent’s passion or favorite pastime will show itself in the room of their new baby. From favorite Disney characters to favorite football teams, moms and dads influence their little ones from the day they come home from the hospital. One classy decorating theme for baby rooms for boys is motorcycles. Perhaps you enjoy the rev of the engine and the freedom of rushing air as you travel the highways on your bike. Motorcycles is a theme never goes out of style, particularly if you choose to decorate with vintage motorcycle signs.
Teach your baby boy to love the open road as much as you do with some well-placed biker décor. Although it may not seem like it, retro motorcycle wall décor can be made age appropriate when mixed with other baby items and colors.
One option is to frame a series of motorcycle signs and make them a focal point by hanging them in a prominent place. You can paint these frames in colors that coordinate with the colors in the décor and throughout the room to tie everything together.
The best way to begin your baby room project is to first select the motorcycle signs you want to use throughout the room. You will base the rest of the room’s décor off the colors in these signs. They will serve as your guide throughout the room’s transformation.
Pointed motorcycle-themed touches around the baby nursery will also help to play up the biker décor. Make displays out of items like leather chaps, motorcycle helmets, biker jackets, and even club patches.
One way to do this is with wooden pegs from which you can hang and display leather chaps and biker jackets. Cute shelving provides a platform for displaying prized pieces like motorcycle helmets or bike models. Club patches can add to the wall décor when you arrange them in shadow boxes, which help them stand out.
Black wrought iron lamps, hardware, and various accessories coordinate very nicely with vintage motorcycle signs. Keeping this décor option consistent throughout different items in the baby room will help keep the biker theme flowing for a more cohesive end result.
A bright pop of color will make a great statement in your baby’s motorcycle room. You can choose the brightest color from the motorcycle wall décor that will be the accent color. Then use this color in two or three choice items in the nursery. For example, accent pillows, lampshades, accent rugs, or a chair are the best ways to incorporate a bright color. This small addition to the room will keep it from being too serious or dark. Don’t forget to add special touches like framed sonogram photos or homemade blankets to soften things up.
