Ok, it’s not exactly Jaws here. Or Shark Week even. But sharks are the height of cool, making them a nice idea for a bedroom theme element.

My nephew is just obsessed with sharks right now, almost as much as I was as a kid. We just put up an undersea mural in his room and cut out a great white shark from the extra and stuck it to the wall by his bed. (His Orca friend is protecting him at night. ?? When I ran across a few shark specific items, I started pondering how to make this work in a kids bedroom.

Blue is the obvious start for the room. We’re talking water and a lot of sharks have that blue-gray color to them. I really like the color scheme used on this shark beanbag chair from Lilian Vernon – various blues with a little black. You wouldn’t want blue bedding, then blue walls, but you could do one black wall and the others white. That would allow the chair to stand out against the wall.

I have yet to see a shark comforter, but I had found these cool shark sheets from Tommy Hilfiger in the past. And note that touch of red? That’s another color option to help break up the blue. You could go with a red comforter, in fact, to represent the blood in the water. (Trust me. A boy will think that’s cool.)

Thanks to Discovery and Shark Week, there are tons of shark posters and other wall decor available. I found a chalkboard shark wall decal, shark sighting aluminum sign and a kid-sized stuffed shark to help make the room more sharky.

UPDATE: I just knew there had to be more to this idea than I found at first. So I’ve got a board going over at Pinterest with more shark bedroom ideas.
