Getting Started: Creating Your Focal Point - Tomboy Bold Bedding Ideas
Budget-Wise Black & Grey City Skyline Bedding Set
There's all 'degrees' of tomboy; mine was more boy~look anything. I've included a host of different tomboy looks in bedding and decor but beginning your decorating venture should start with a striking bedding set ~ one that bears a bold contrast against your walls.
Optimally, you want the bed to take center stage in your girl's bedroom and be the showstopper of the space in its size and appearance. So, it makes sense to go as big and bold as your budget allows.
These cool hard-as-city-steel-beams bedding sets have that strong presence you'll want if you're creating a modern, Soho look. They'll also earn their keep and grow with your tomboy into dorm room ~ if you dare think that far.
Beginning with a striking focal point makes easy work of decorating around.

Capture the Cityscape Energy with Color
Color defines your bedroom's vibe, its 'feel' better than any single piece of decor you can add to your space. This bedding set, with its neon-light affect paints its own picture of energy that never sleeps.
Can you feel it?
It's this very feature that promises the most in creating the ideal ground for your chosen tomboy cityscape theme. Choose pieces that speak--if not yell out loud--with an "I am here!" presence. Starting with such a strong element as this bedding, makes the rest of your decorating venture easy as you won't need too much else in your girl's bedroom.
Orange Camo: Bright Yet Woodsy--Just Like a Tomboy
Highly Visual Orange Camo Bedding
Going Your Own Way of the Outdoors with Camo Bedding Sets
The camo design is amazingly versatile and will suit any bona fide tomboy. Easy to work with, camouflage can be paired up with any color and brightness ~ including neon. I was happy to see the orange/camo combination as well as the other color choices available.
You'll have the option to go funky or literal with a hunting or lodge look, depending on your girl's taste for adventure. That's the real beauty of camo: create your own sense of adventure and coolness. Camo can also change face with a quick change-out of accessories; you won't have to toss everything. I can recall seeing 'one of everything' in camo, from kittens to tanks. Go your own way with camo and have fun.
There's a Little DJ in All of Us - Cool 'Vibe" Tomboy Style Bedding
Sound Waves in Bedding Design
Creating that DJ Vibe in Your Tomboy's Bedroom
Tween and teen tomboys love the cool DJ look. Music makes a great theme ~ no matter its genre, and every girl has her favorite artist, making it easier to find artwork and accessories.
If your tomboy loves the rock & roll look, consider perusing ebay or even yard sales for broken Guitar Hero guitar controllers and real instruments out of mend to decorate walls super cheap.
Other broken instruments or old signs make great wall art, too. I like unconventional pieces on the wall; just about anything can be a decoration if you position it on your wall, declaring it art. Now, that's easy.
These bedding sets have the 'vibe' look of equalizers and lights moving with bass sound waves.
It's art that lives and breathes. Very teen and tomboy.

So have at it with black.
Solid-Colored Bedding Means More Decor Options
Creating a Solid Footing in Your Tomboy's Bedroom Decor
Solid Black Reversible Bedding for Two Decorating Styles
Solid Comforter Sets are the Perfect 'Blank Canvas' for Your Tomboy Bedroom
Much like black, solid-colored bedding like these two comforter sets will afford you far more freedom with your decor options with accessories and wall art. Too, should your tomboy awake with a new perspective on the world, as I did, solid bedding can meld into a new, major redo.
I would pair up these bedding sets with patterned throw pillows that are highly visual like the chevron (zig zag) pattern or any tween or teen themed faves.
With solid bed sets, you have your freedom with window treatments, too. I love sheer panels; they're oh-so cheap, come in a host of fun hues and you'll find a pair to work with your tomboy's taste.
For total expression, go with a solid color bedding set.

I'll include a few ideas for wall art below to give you an idea of how this bedding pairs up well with the long-survived art form.

Black is like a sponge in that it soaks up its surroundings making easy work of everything.
When in doubt with your tomboy bedroom, black it is for worry-free decorating.
Here's a few possibilities for black bedding. See how easily it is to imagine black's versatility?
Blue Bedding with an Extra Boost of Color
Working with White Walls
I love it when I'm able to find just the 'right-on' element for whatever theme I'm working on.
Either of these graffiti-style or black and grey comforters will make an ideal power-packed focal point while defining your girl as being one proud tomboy.
The key to wall colors you'd rather not have, is to use bedding that grabs (ie: HOGS) all the attention upon walking in the bedroom. If you've white walls that you can't be painted just yet, the striking design of these bedding pieces will capture the eye quite readily, and the admirer won't notice those wan, white walls.
With the blue and white bed set, consider using bright white pillows and a white area rug if you've hardwood floors.
If you haven't stolen the eye yet after using these tips, use loud wall decals and/or posters that are colorful and you'll have the balance of plain and powerful you need.
Wall Art on the Cheap
Tomboy Spin on "Keep Calm" Wall Art
Posters as wall art are a great short-term investment; they're just right for this year's decorating and can easily and cheaply be replaced come the next fad.
I'm forever advising getting those cheap poster frames from big-box craft stores, as they almost always have weekly coupons for as much as half off. If you get the 36" x 24" standard size frames, it's your best bet. Most posters are available in this size, so you can simply pop your art in and out of the frame ~ easy-peasy!
This cool poster puts a tomboy spin on the "Keep Calm . . . " wall art. The versatile blue is ideal for the bedding sets above but will look right at home with many the other genres of comforters I've featured here.
Posters for Tomboys: Sizeable Wall Art Made Easy
Measuring Up Wall Art - Funky Monkey Goes DJ
No matter if you're going the DJ/rock star route in your tomboy's room or not, unique wall art will make a big impression above your girl's bed and opposing walls.
Create a custom frame that's ultra cool with scratched CDs and DVDs by gluing them around a poster like this fun DJ chimp version.
As I mentioned, camo pairs up easily with most anything and this poster will look funky along side the camo bedding above ~ particularly the orange design.
Having been the ultimate, tried-and-true, tomboy, I'm lovin' this one.
