Tractors hold a tremendous fascination for people of all ages. Perhaps this is because of a tractor's bright colours or its shiny fixtures, or perhaps it's because of a tractor's powerful machinery, detailed dashboard and lofty view of the world. No matter the reason for his fascination, it is simple to honour the tractor lover's passion with a tractor-themed bedroom.

Determine your primary colour scheme. Choose two colours that are commonly seen on farm equipment. Red and black or green and yellow are two popular colour schemes for tractor-themed bedrooms.
Choose a neutral accent colour. Your tractor themed bedroom will need a third colour to soften the bright primary colours associated with tractors. Choose neutrals such as white or tan, or go a more trendy direction with shades of grey. According to the My Perfect Color website, grey looks great with bold colours and offers a calming effect, too.
Purchase bedding and accent pieces in the colours of your chosen colour scheme. Be sure to purchase bedding staples such as a comforter, a sheet set, pillowcases, shams and a bed skirt. For accent pieces, consider a lamp with a toy tractor base, a round play rug in a bright colour, and a red or green dresser scarf.
Paint the walls in your chosen neutral shade to offset the bright colours elsewhere in the room.
Paint images of tractors on the walls or apply tractor-themed wall decals. These add delightful visual interest for young people and give your bedroom a cheerful atmosphere.
Include a tractor, because every tractor-themed bedroom should have one. Purchase a kid-sized tractor (available from many farm equipment suppliers) and display it in a corner of the room.
Design a corner focal point. For example, a child would love pretending to drive a tractor in a bedroom corner decorated with a real tractor seat and steering wheel mounted on a wooden platform. Face it toward the corner, paint the walls to look like a tractor dashboard, and you're ready for fun.
