With his bright smile and winning ways, Lightning McQueen raced into the hearts of little boys in the Disney movie "Cars." Lightning McQueen and the "Cars" movie make an adorable bedroom theme for a young boy. With a little paint, a few accessories and perhaps some new bedding, you can transform your child's room into a Lightning McQueen dream room.

Colour Scheme

Lightning McQueen is a red race car with yellow racing numbers, and these two colours figure prominently in the official Disney "Cars" colour palette. Study a few licenced "Cars" items, and you'll see that bright blue is also used often. Additionally, black and white chequers work especially well with this room theme as that is the colour and pattern on car-racing flags.


When decorating the walls of your child's Lightning McQueen room, you can get as creative or as simple as you like. You can choose one of the colour palette shades and simply paint the entire room one colour, or you can choose a combination of many colours. For example, paint the bottom half of the walls blue, the upper half yellow and add a strip of black and white chequers in between the two colours. Wall decals of the "Cars" characters are an easy option that make a big impact.


Because of the movie's success and Lightning McQueen's popularity, bedding in this theme is readily available from mass merchandisers and bed-and-bath stores. Because obtaining and using bedding mainly involves shopping, this portion may be the easiest part of the decorating project. Shop around and you'll most likely find several choices, including bedspreads, comforters, sheets, pillowcases and bed skirts.


Window coverings have the most impact when they contrast with the wall colour. If you've painted the walls blue, choose yellow or red window treatments. You can make an easy yet super-cute valance by sewing triangular black-and-white checkered racing flags together. Another option is to dress up plain roller shades with "Cars" wall decals. Additionally, some manufacturers of Lightning McQueen bedding sets make matching curtains available.


Lightning McQueen accessories abound in stores and online. You can easily find a multitude of items from waste baskets and clocks to toy chests and bookshelves. Set up a shelf where your little guy can display all his "Cars" toys when he's not playing with them.
