Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a stunning view of Manhattan in this sophisticated kids' room. With a colorful, orange patterned rug, and classic gingham-print chair, this space reflects playful design while remaining polished.
Erin Marshall of Live Pretty on a Penny says, "Being organized is key when you live a leasing-lifestyle. Turn to space-saving and unconventional items that are beautiful and functional to effectively store and organize items." Here, this kid's room combines narrow shelves and picture shelves around a bench for ample toy and book storage.
Erin’s mastery of neutral tones is evident throughout her home, but when it comes to spaces for her son, Henry, she embraces color in a whole new way. The deep blue wallpaper in Henry’s bedroom creates a colorful backdrop against which everything else pops. Matching patterns on the lampshade and window shade and the brilliant pattern of the bright red rug create a visually stimulating space for her son.
If you have toys and games of different sizes that you want to store together but have limited space, an organizer with drawers and cubes is a good solution. Label large fabric drawers for games and puzzles, and use clear-front cubes and smaller drawers to store tiny toys that have been grouped together by type.
Give kids rooms they can grow with. Egypt Sherrod worked with AmericasMart to makeover the children’s rooms in this Dwell with Dignity project. She says her main goal was to create a comfortable space for the kids that reflected their personalities that they wouldn’t outgrow too quickly.
Large scale colorful artwork and a playful tent provide a whimsical vibe in this modern kids room. Soft textiles and stuffed animals on the bright red bed warm up the space, with area rugs covering up the light hardwood floor.
The play space in this kid's room, part of the second-floor addition, was expanded by going up! A loft was created underneath the dormer window with the potential to be just about anything (daydreaming nook, pirate ship, secret hideout). A barn door hides an expansive closet.
This kids room features a classic white bunk bed and a touch of modern sophistication. The neutral carpeting and pops of navy give the space a feel that can be easily upgraded with time, while the heavy wooden furniture gives a childlike vibe to the room with classic books above the white cabinet storage.
Soft, neutral wallpaper with geometric patterns wrap this elegant and modern kids room. Plush textures stretch from the faux fur area rug to the daybed with inviting pillows and throws. A small play tent sits beside the window with a large roman shade and baskets filled with plush toys, all beneath a modern brass pendant light.
Kids and adults alike can enjoy time in this neutral cottage sitting room. Storage for toys and games is ample in the dark wood armoire. Bead board walls, a rattan sofa with washable cushions, hardwoods and chipped furniture make the space a durable playroom for kids but stylistically mature for adults since it has to serve dual purposes.
Stop sifting through clothing that no longer fits. Professional organizer Darla DeMorrow suggests keeping a box labeled “too small” for items your child has outgrown. When you have time, donate or pass down.
