Before the makeover, this little boy’s room didn’t show his love for fishing or space at all. As part of a Dwell with Dignity makeover, designer Egypt Sherrod redecorated the space to make it more personal.
The contemporary boy's bedroom features touches of nautical inspiration through the canoe bookshelf and rope chandelier. Bright blue walls are punctuated with accents of red, while deep brown woods and striped bedding help to ground the space.
Matching twin beds dressed in a baseball motif create the quintessential all-American theme for this boy's bedroom. Green wall detailing defines the bed area and adds a burst of color to the neutral space.
Designers transformed the building's former classrooms into the bedrooms for these homeowners. Instead of splitting the space into five bedrooms-one for each child-designers decided to leave the room open and create a wall with six bunk beds. These bed spaces are given some privacy with curtains to give each boy their own space.
To create a unique space for the homeowners' little boy, designers anchored the space in a bright blue wall color and mural that depicts a map of the world. Then, they added a navy bed frame to add contrast in the space. Finally, they added colorful pillows and the occupant's prized possessions-a statue and a guitar-to give the space a personalized touch to the room.
A Parsons-style desk paired with stylish stools creates a space-saving and versatile option for a bedroom that functions as a sleep, lounge and homework space. This layout also leaves room for more fun seating options, such as hanging hammock chairs.
For older children and even adults, a loft bed is a great way to leave floor space open. It takes advantage of otherwise unused space and makes it possible to add a desk or a seating area in a small room that would have been otherwise overwhelmed by a large bed.
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.
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.
To make this little boy's work space extra personal, designers had him work on paper crafts that they hung in the homework area above his desk. They also ordered coloring books, pencils, crayons and art supplies for the desk so that it was ready to use once the renovation was complete.
