Two maple four-poster beds are set against a bright red hue that's perfect for kids of all ages. A car motif is repeated throughout the room with a pedal police car "driven" by a plush teddy bear in the center of the room and chrome wheel covers perched over each bed. A chrome diamond-plate border (purchased at an auto supply store!) adds another unexpected touch.
The final touch for this space-themed kids' room was a life-sized astronaut printed on the duvet and a helmet on the pillowcase. Every night as the kiddo goes to sleep, he gets to pretend he’s an astronaut heading into space!
Small toy cars can often turn up missing or scattered around your home. In this racing-themed child's bedroom, a basket placed on an open shelf at the bottom of a nightstand gives both parents and kids an easy way to gather and store the cars. This helps avoid lost cars and having the toys be a tripping hazard.
Toy storage is kept easy and casual in this kids' room. Cubbies located at floor level make it easy for kids to put away their own toys when through with them, while higher shelves provide a spot to store things out of reach while allowing them to contribute to the fun style of the room.
Using Benjamin Moore's Newburyport Blue as the backdrop, Jenn Feldman Designs created a fun, Americana themed space for a race car loving kid, with seating for mom and dad and their other two sons to jump on in. By creatively angling the twin bed and it's frame, JFD was able to add seating and play space for all to gather, all while keeping the details fun for a fantastic four-year-old kid!
The brightly hued children's toys previously dominated this dining room space. It was an example, says designer Gina Sims, of a common problem: how to integrate a child's toys and make them accessible for play without relinquishing design control and focus.
