For the kid who loves planes, an aviation-inspired bedroom is the dream. A retro biplane bed sits in the center of the room surrounded by floor-to-ceiling maps, painted clouds on a tray ceiling and a compass-shaped ceiling medallion.
Using a simple, geometric desk and bunk bed creates a studious, sophisticated feel in this kids bedroom. Soft blue walls, a fun blue chair pops with color and a sports themed throw maintain a the sense of youth.
A floating nightstand ensures that this space-themed kids' room feels as fun and futuristic as possible. The piece is functional, too, giving the little one a spot for a glass of water, books and other bed time essentials.
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!
Fun, subtle pattern on the walls and chevron-themed accessories bring the perfect combination of sophistication and fun to this New York girl's room. The designer's goal was to create a space well-suited for a young child but flexible enough to grow with her into her teens. An upholstered bed in lilac is a whimsical, custom touch.
The kids may not come inside all summer when you show them this delicious deck covered by an oversized tent. Twin beds paired with rustic nightstands will keep sleepyheads cozy while rugs, armchairs, benches and coffee tables provide every comfort to occupants when awake.
Talented Atlanta designer Mallory Mathison created this themed Little Boy Blue bedroom decked out beautifully in child-friendly holiday style in Francophile shades of blue and red. Each twin bed comes with a charming lit Christmas tree with fire-safe LED lights. Parents can treat these trees as advent calendars and nestle a different gift for each day leading up to Christmas or Hanukkah in the boughs or at the foot of the tree. Children will love the cozy glow of the tree lights as they drift off to sleep and these trees also make the perfect holiday night light says Mathison. Rather than cut trees, Mathison used potted evergreens that can be planted in the garden when the holidays are over.
Let little ones help finish off your soiree’s tablescape by turning carnations and cherries into floral ice cream sundaes. To do this, have them place pre-cut carnations in two different colors (pink and white work best) into sundae glasses made of plastic or acrylic. Add the pink carnations inside of the glass to serve as the ice cream substitute. Next, layer two or three white carnations in the center and slightly higher than the pink ones so they take on the look of whipped cream. After the kids add cherries to the top of their creations, parents should add water before placing the arrangements on the table.
The Solis Two Porsche Drive hotel adjacent to the Porsche Experience Center, has become the go-to destination for visitors checking out the driving experience at Porsche. Part of the booming city rising in the shadow of the airport, the "aerotropolis" of Hapeville next to Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport—the world's busiest passenger airport—is just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta and has a lot to recommend it for both car-crazy adults and their child companions. The 8-story hotel itself overlooks—at key vantage points—the Porsche Experience Center racetrack. The rooftop Overdrive Lounge offers the best public view by far of both Porsche and the airport and there are also 9 track-view suites. The rooms themselves are insulated with triple-pane windows from flight noise. For transportation-obsessed kids, this is a once-in-a-lifetime convergence of planes, trains (train tracks pass right in front of the hotel) and automobiles all viewable in close proximity to the property (there's even a Delta Flight Museum close-by for flight fans). For quick and easy access to downtown Atlanta, I-75 is in close proximity to Solis. You can sit on the outside patio of the in-house restaurant Apron and watch planes come in for landings and eavesdrop on visiting German Porsche execs relaxing after a day of work at Porsche's North American headquarters. To continue the Porsche tie-in, two Porsche Cayennes offer VIP transportation to the airport and auto artwork abounds: there are car murals in the lobby and car motif art in the 214 guest rooms. There is even an in-house Porsche themed gift shop to take home a souvenir.
