The Inspiration: Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) Ferris Bueller's Day Off
For kids (male or female) like Ferris Bueller—the computer whiz who used his tech-savvy skills to engineer one of the most memorable days off ever—chalkboard paint offers the opportunity to let those creative ideas fly. If painting walls in black chalkboard is too extreme for your taste, look for large blackboards or bulletin boards. The most popular elements in boys' rooms these days include stripes, blue and green accent colors, and plenty of cubicles and desk space to keep computers and games organized, says Manhattan designer Jennifer Ellen Frank. It's enough to inspire Ferris to stay home.
