Fresh & Fun Kids’ Room Ideas

 

http://www.parenting.com/child/sleep/fresh-fun-kids-room-ideasAs an interior designer and a mom, I know that kids’ rooms can be fun but challenging spaces to design. You want the design to grow with them as they mature while still showcasing the children’s ever-changing personalities. When embarking on your next redesign project, remember to ask your child for ideas; it is going to be his or her room after all!

Contributor and interior designer, Kathleen Leppert, shares some of her latest kids’ room makeovers to help spark your creativity when you tackle your child’s room.

As an interior designer and a mom, I know that kids’ rooms can be fun but challenging spaces to design. You want the design to grow with them as they mature while still showcasing the children’s ever-changing personalities. When embarking on your next redesign project, remember to ask your child for ideas; it is going to be his or her room after all! But remember to avoid the tragic pitfalls of theme or character rooms because we all know the character they can’t live without today will be old news in a few months. If she can’t live without Elsa and Anna somewhere in her room, appease her with pillowcases or sheets that can be hidden and changed easily with little expense.

With your child’s wishlist in hand, I suggest starting your search for kids’ room ideas on Pinterest. Not only can you find inspiration, but you can compile all of your ideas in one place or create your own design board. But before you head off into Pinterest-land, check out these fresh kids’ room ideas my partner and I used for our clients to help you narrow down your search.

This little girl requested a princess room, so we put together the virtual design board below to compile her parents’ ideas and our own.

Here’s the finished product. We decided to put a modern twist on the usual princess theme, so it could grow with her for years to come.

The tee pee can be removed when she outgrows it. Everything else is fairly neutral, which gives the princess feel without the sugary sweetness. The oversized brass letters spelling BLOOM down the wall are a welcome twist to the usual name on the wall, and they add a touch of whimsy. Via parenting.com
