Stylish Kid’s Rooms and Nurseries

Our design energy is usually targeted at the adults of the family, whether we’re creating gathering spaces for the whole family to enjoy or a relaxing master suite.  But once in a while, we get to focus some energy on the kids of the family which gives us a chance to work with bolder colors, fun patterns, and creative themes.

All About Accents

Often children’s room design for us is limited to custom window treatments or some fun bedding. These are items that are out of reach, so less likely to be damaged or lower budget in the scheme of design but make a large impact in the space.   This navy and orange valance was designed for a little boy’s room with the thought that it could grow with him.

Along the same lines, in this little girl’s room, we created a custom cornice and accent bed pillow to give her a bit of flare. The bright pink is fun for a young girl, but the use of a geometric ensures it can grow with her as her tastes evolve.

Nautical Nursery

Other times we are given the chance to take the designs a bit further in a child’s room; it’s especially fun to design a nursery with a theme.  This room’s inspiration started with the rug, and the theme ran from there. We knew we needed to work with the existing dresser and crib, but adding beach glass walls, navy accents, and even a rope covered lamp brings this theme to life.  Anchors show up on the valances and in the details of the dresser pulls that we swapped out form the existing silver knobs.

Transportation Theme

What little boy doesn’t like a truck?  This towering crane decal creates a bold accent wall pulling together a transportation-themed boy’s room.  Decals are great because they’re easy to pull down as the kids grow and taste changes. A custom valance gives us a bit of pattern and a fun pop of lime green.  We’re loving the combination of navy, grey, and lime carried throughout the art, accessories, and small details.

Shared Spaces

Shared spaces can create a design dilemma when thinking about floor plans.  Here are two different ways to fit two kiddos into one room. In the first room,  we featured two twin beds with a desk in place of nightstands. This room was expansive, so two beds fit well.

The second room has the classic bunk bed which works well here because it takes up a smaller footprint.

Both spaces feature a classic red, white, and blue color palette, though the difference between the navy in the first room and the brighter royal blue in the second really changes the feel of the space.

Little Girl’s Dream

This teal and pink nursery is a  little girl’s dream. From the floral accent wall to the rosebud dresser pulls, no detail was left out. The design started with the color palette.  From there, a few accent walls were proposed depending on if the baby was a boy or a girl, but once we knew it was a girl, the floral fun won! Even the animals in the prints are wearing flower crowns in this girly retreat.

Grandma’s Guest Room

This little guest room is the perfect spot for the grandkids.  We didn’t have a lot of room to make an impact, so we used a fun wallpaper, bold window seat fabric, and beach-themed rug.  Right now, this room has a twin bed, a crib and some storage in the window seat, and under the bed, but as the kids get older, the crib can be swapped out for a second twin bed or a dresser.
