A black-and-white rhino mural from Wall + Deco makes a fun statement in this boy's nursery, which is grounded by neon yellow floors. A low sofa and contemporary rocker create a space for relaxing and playing.
In this bedroom space, designers wanted to keep the space feeling clean and bright like the rest of the home, so they kept the color palette neutral and warm with a subtle, gray and white look. For a little extra comfort, a sitting area was added to the room and is separated from the main bedroom space by a curtain that adds privacy to both spaces.
Matching black and white tufted chairs are in the forefront of this long bedroom. A white border design outlines the black carpet echoing the look of the black curtains with white trim. A tufted black headboard stretches up to the ceiling and is framed by mirror panels. White bed linens are topped with decorative black throw pillows for a perfectly two-toned design.
This nursery is a perfect example of how a room can rock a theme and stay sophisticated, timeless and relevant. This big boy's space will not time out through the use of bold color, dramatic pattern and mature furnishings.
Tricks of the Trade:
1. How to Balance a Bold Pattern: Make sure your colors have a weight to it that can hold up to the bold pattern. Designer Karen Wolf used bright mid tones to balance the whales and also showcase them.
2. Why Red?: The black pattern called for a "power pop". The playful and strong red color was able to shine on its own in just right amounts in the room.
Three-dimensional wall art goes a long way if you’re working with lots of blank space, and the plush variety is so fitting for a nursery. To achieve a more playful feel, mount a stuffed animal head above your crib. Thanks to the internet, you can find just about any animal you’d want – from a deer to a flamingo to a unicorn. For a more modern look, mount a plush geometric shape, like the edgy, black-and-white rain cloud here. Or, do both, like designer and stylist Live Loud Girl. You really can’t go wrong when it comes to fun, pillowy wall art.
Inspired by Kate Spade, this tween girl's bedroom uses a chic, black and white color palette with light blue, hot pink and bright green accents to complement the design. The light blue, lofted bed doubles as a bookshelf to maximize space.
