HGTV Design Star contestant Kellie designed this kid's bedroom on episode seven of season six. Though Mason asked for bunk beds, Kellie chose a loft bed with a hideout underneath. But Mason was noticeably disappointed at the reveal: "Poor kid. He was just looking for his bunk beds," says judge David Bromstad.
Because this small bedroom must be shared by two young girls, spacial planning was very important. A lofted bed for the older of the two girls creates room for the younger girl's crib and a storage or play space. A bunk bed can replace the setup as the girls age. A light, monochromatic palette was used to make the room feel larger than it is. Fabrics and accents with distinct patterns and textures are used to make the space from feeling too plain.
This contemporary bedroom doubles as a lounge space with a loft bed built over the large black and white sectional. Alternating cushions create a checked look with black and white throw pillows adding to the theme. Speaker pillows and a boom box canvas add musical decor perfect for the cool vibe of the room.
An outdoorsy boy's bedroom can't help but be fun with this large camp house-style loft bed and cozy reading nook below. A funky rug, pillows, and paper cardboard moose head add a modern whimsical touch.
Black carpet with a white logo sets the stage for a stylish black and white bedroom and lounge area. A loft bed sits over a sectional with alternating black and white cushions. Speaker throw pillows and a boom box picture add a music themed decor to the room. A striped ceiling brings a tight pattern to the design.
A dorm room desk tucked under a lofted bed maximizes your available floor space. Wall space can be livened with posters or trinkets to represent your home state. Colorful school supplies are useful for working and also serve as cute decor on the desktop. An easily removable wallpaper over the desk top gives it an extra personal touch.
The framing and built-in stairs in the bunk-bed unit are painted white, and black metal railing provides visual contrast. The skinnylap wall treatment adds texture while keeping a neutral backdrop. The lofted bed leaves a nook space perfect for setting up a study space.
This small apartment branches out in clever ways with a platform bed that doubles as an extra seating area and delightfully kitschy accessories. Oversized white fur pillows top the plush green bed cushion while an acrylic table with toy-pistol vase cozies up to the bedside. Transluscent room dividers and a brightly colored mural-sized painting completes the offbeat and eclectic space.
The cantilevered bed pavilion is clad in dark wood, and anchors the space — a central object around which everything revolves. A dark wood floor and wood stair treads lead through and around the apartment, spiraling up onto the wood deck at the roof.
