> If the clas­sic Ralph Lau­ren colours of red, white and navy are not quite your thing but you’re look­ing for a strong, time­less bed­room scheme for your son that will grow with him, this colour pal­ette of moody grey, white and red is a real win­ner.

> With a sim­ple, clean-cut, ulphol­stered head­board and re­laxed bed­ding this room has many clas­sic el­e­ments plus a few mod­ern ur­ban touches thrown in. Hav­ing a place to hang items such as head­phones and hats is es­sen­tial and will make grab­bing things at the last minute easy (if they hang them on the hooks in the first place, that is!).

> A read­ing light is an­other must-have, but it doesn’t need to be a ta­ble lamp. A hang­ing light will do the trick and can free up space on the bed­side ta­ble. To as­sist with tidi­ness, a stor­age ham­per for dirty clothes won’t go amiss and a small rug by the bed will keep feet warm in the cooler months. A large, tough-wear­ing, denim floor cush­ion is a great ad­di­tion and can be used for chill­ing out on when mates come over.

> If you get the ba­sic de­sign right, ac­ces­sories, bed­ding and framed prints can be changed out over time to re­flect your child’s age, in­ter­ests and per­son­al­ity.
