where did you get the orange storage bins? - I am using your son's room as inspiration for my son's. I have that expedite unit and can't find any orange bins to fit. I'm ordering the wallpaper from Walnut Wallper. Just need to find some orange accessories and a duvet cover:) Love the room!!

Hi Meagan, I'm glad you like the bedroom. I'm not the homeowner, I took the photo. I'm not sure where she got the orange storage bins, however I found these that are cute. They are 10.5 x 10.5 inches. Good luck!

The large floral type pattern was from Anthropology. The Gnome pillow is by Todd, but I don't think they make it anymore… sorry!

The trunk is an old trunk, painted by my husband, Jeremiah Miller. ( if you'd like him to paint one for you! He is very reasonable :)

The rug is actually carpet squares by Flor.

My husband hand painted the trunk… He has great prices and does custom pieces:

Where did you get the trunk beneath the bed? - I love the skull on the trunk beneath the bed and its worn look. How did you accomplish that? I am assuming the skull was an applique or painted on. Thanks!

Can you please give me the wallpaper source? I am desperate to find the right wallpaper for my son's room. I am trying to do a quick room makeover while he is away at camp. No time for looking. :(

Hello. The wallpaper was purchased through It's by Osborne and Little, Collection: Vintage, Pattern Name: Volte Face. Good luck, hopefully you can get it in time and surprise your lucky little kid! You can also tell them you saw this on Houzz. They will remember.

Hi. I'm not sure where the bed frame is from but the bed was from Room Service. Perhaps it all came together.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Spencer chose his wild zigzag wallpaper, which is perfect for his rock star personality. He's the rhythm guitar player for a band called Step Forward Lads. Lee-Hawk says, "When Spencer picked his wallpaper, I nearly fell over. Now it's one of my favorite rooms in the house."
Hot orange sparks this otherwise neutral boy's bedroom. Orange is a terrific color for kids — it's youthful and energetic, but not at all childish.
Kids' rooms. It's always fun to go a little crazy with color in kids' rooms, but no one wants to have to redecorate every time a child is tired of the latest scheme. Be playful but choose something classic, too.Kids' room color guidesUnexpected color schemes for boys' roomsSubdued pink and purple palettesRoom ideas for teensMore: Browse the Houzz library of color guides
Samantha Schoech added this to How to Save a Boring Box of a Room
This looks like a standard boxy apartment bedroom, complete with horizontal window. But look at how much life it has thanks to the curtains, wallpaper, repeated color scheme and dramatic bed.
