Camping indoors!

We just cannot get enough of kids rooms! Interior design has become quite common for these spaces and it shows. It seems the overly themed rooms have seen their better days and more uniquely designed rooms are leading the pack. We could not be happier with this turn of events. Kids rooms do not have to be the standard blue for boy and pink for girl. Let’s mix it up and have some fun! Wallpaper, rugs, bedding, lighting, storage, and accessories have all become quite intentional in regards to design for these rooms.

Have you recently worked on your own or with a designer on a child’s bedroom design? Did you let your child have a say in what they wanted for their rooms? Why or why not? We would love to see! Please feel free to share pictures and/or start a conversation!

Design a Unique Kids Room….GO!

Kids rooms are no longer the long-standing tradition of pink for girl and blue for boy. Oh, no. The sky is the limit with designing kids rooms. But, where do you start?

It is always best to start with a rug or another bold item that is to stand out in the room. For me, I have selected a great wallpaper for my son’s room that is going to be the “star” of the room. I am still planning on adding fun and funky elements in other areas, but this wallpaper is bold, so I want to let it stand out, as it is meant to do.

Next, select your furniture items to ground the room. Depending on the “bold item” you selected for the room, you may either want to stick with clean lines OR use this as an opportunity to add a bit more fun with a more ornate bed, such as a jenny lind style. After these items are selected, go ahead and work on your bedding, pillows, paint color, window treatments, and accessories. As we said before, the sky is truly the limit when it comes to décor in a kids room. Take a look at some of these great kids rooms and please feel free to share your own!
