Kids aren't the only ones who go through awkward stages, their rooms do, too. A nautical scheme that was perfect for a boy at 10 can seem babyish to a teen, and piles of dirty hoodies do not a decor scheme make. These teenage boys' rooms capture a playful use of bold colour and convey evolving personal interests, without being too grown up.

Hits of orange, a dramatic accent wall and barnboard warm up this Ottawa attic bedroom.

Vintage lockers provide indestructible storage for teens, and add a nice patina.

Sculptural wall art makes a big, gutsy statement, and who wouldn't appreciate the subversive humour of the license plate in the shark's jaws?

This Scandinavian boy's room is punched up by an industrial pendant and fierce bedding.

Athletic memorabilia can make a bedroom look like a sports bar, but this graphic ticket-stub wall treatment is a simple way to convey passion for the (obviously memorable) game.

For all the stuff that boys love to just drop on the ground, a multitude of hooks on an easy installation decal encourages neatness, and geographic knowledge of the West Indies.
