Bedding in the home’s signature black and white color palette juxtaposes stripes and polka-dots for a very modern mix of patterns. Pops of orange throughout the room liven up the space while giving it a warm yet youthful feel. Even more color finds it way in through the metallic side table and lamp, while leopard-patterned pillows on both beds tie the colors and patterns together.
This bedroom positively glows with style. The mantel is a great area for display, featuring a variety of the girls’ favorite accessories and even a few plants beneath a bright, neon sign, spelling out the words, Say What!

The girls’ room is an excellent example of how to design a kid’s room with a sense of style. When designing a room for kids there’s a lot to be said for keeping the overall aesthetic aligned with the rest of the home. Instead of decorating with bright pastel colors and more traditional "kid's colors" that don’t reflect their personal style, Julio and Kenza have blended their grownup black and white color palette with fun elements like the heart polka dots on the sheets, typographic art and pops of orange in this kid-friendly space.
After: Bright and Cheerful Boys' Room with Mario Prints and Extra Storage
Make a space that will last. “You don’t want things to be temporary. You want things that they can grow with,” said Cate Dunning of GordonDunning, who decorated this bedroom as part of a Dwell with Dignity install. This bedroom was for three boys who loved Super Mario Brothers and the Atlanta Falcons, so GordonDunning incorporated red accented with blue and hung framed Mario art prints from Etsy on the wall. The beds were already in the room, and DIY blogger Dena Stormer painted them with Sherwin Williams Positive Red.
Adding a whimsical touch, the white hanging chair is the ideal spot for reading or relaxing in this tween bedroom. White floating shelves are defined by cool brass hardware and display the tween's collection of vintage books. Two big woven bins make organization quick and easy.
The girls’ bedroom is filled with unique, textural details. Above the twin beds, a woven metal pendant is a cool statement piece overhead. In the corner, a modern lucite chair is the perfect place to hang out. Atop it, a pillow featuring President Obama is a great accent piece.
Camille Flurry's Athens, Ga., bedroom is the perfect example of a tween room done right. To create a one-of-a-kind, eclectic, super-cool space, Camille's mom, Amy, combined handed-down family pieces with finds from local flea markets, vintage boutiques and art festivals. The white bed and nightstand first belonged to Amy as a child. She supplemented these finds with traditional area rugs from local stores. The chandelier is a budget-saver from a local lighting company that Amy customized with red spray paint to brighten Camille's room.
