This boy's room features unconventional repurposed furnishings. A trunk is turned on its side for a nightstand, and a hanging bamboo window treatment acts as a headboard. Meanwhile, a twin bed rests on a chest of drawers, providing optimal storage.
In the homeowners' teenage son's bedroom, designers wanted to really showcase his personality, so they anchored the space in the sleek, white wall color and ash-colored wood floor to connect this room to the rest of the home's design. Then, they incorporated the son's favorite things-sports, cars and music-by hanging posters on the wall in homage to this. They also made sure to include fun, bright colored details, such as the table lamps and the bed linens to bring a little fun to the room.
A boldly patterned cornice, durable FLOR tiles and a bright, fun palette create a bedroom fit for two young superheroes. The fabric is by Schumacher, and the cube-shaped nightstand is by Jonathan Adler.
Upon entry to the multipurpose room, the boys are greeted by a grassy-green dresser (picked up at a flea market, sanded and repainted) which holds their day-to-day school, playground and gym clothes. Although it may seem insignificant at first, proper placement of storage furniture can have a huge impact on keeping a kid's room neat and tidy.
Mounted wood shelving creates customized storage and display space while adding a distressed element to contrast the smooth, contemporary shelving unit below. Wood drawers look beautiful against the white perimeter of the storage unit, and red details add pops of bright color.
For each child’s first birthday, Lynielle made pennant flags that spell out their names and “Happy Birthday” along the panels. The reverse side is blank, featuring only the pattern of the fabrics. For each birthday, she turns them around, but during the remainder of the year they decorate the bedrooms.
