Classic Furniture Creates a Room That Can Grown Up with Its Owner
The homeowners wanted a room that could grow up with their little boy, so designers chose timeless pieces of furniture and base linens for that specific purpose. Designers took liberty to make the room more fun with the artwork, throw pillows and other decor they brought into the space.
Little Girl's Bedroom With Coming-of-Age Design Approach
Designer Claire Paquin carefully designed this child's bedroom in shades of white, gray and hot pink with an eye on what she might like in years to come. She kept the main elements of the design in a neutral palette and added pops of pink in the pillows and other knickknacks that can change as tastes do. A built-in window seat and bookcases are perfect storage solutions for toys, books and games. And what little girl wouldn't love a crystal chandelier of her very own?
If the closet and dresser in your child's room has reached capacity, consider adding a storage bench at the end of the bed. This adaptable piece of furniture gives you a way to hide away medium and larger-sized toys and stuffed animals inside, while also providing a place to change shoes or lay out clothes for the next school day.
White Nightstand With Flower Hardware in Girl's Bedroom
Designer Claire Paquin added a touch of whimsy and fun to this little girl's bedroom with pink accents and a little flower power. The white and gray canvas can handle the strong shade of hot pink in the pillows and floral arrangement, and the cute flowered knob on the white nightstand is a fanciful addition. Having just the accents carry the color allows for quick and inexpensive changes when needed.
Neutral Kids' Bedroom With Loft Bed and Navy Accents
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.
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.
Neutral Child's Bedroom With Polka-Dotted Twin Beds
The polka-dotted bedding and matching curtains draw the eye up, opening the middle of the room. A plaid dust ruffle and brown floral carpet complement the white vintage desk for a harmonious blend of shabby chic style.
Kids' Coastal Bedroom With Paddles and Striped Twin Beds
This coastal bedroom for kids is painted in a neutral Heron Plume from Sherwin Williams. Decorative paddles and artwork from Home Goods adorn the walls, and twin beds from Universal Furniture are dressed in blue and white linens and pillows from Pottery Barn Kids.
Shabby Chic Girl's Bedroom With Pink-Striped Canopy Curtains
Curtains with coral and beige stripes add drama to this canopy bed and unify the muted colors in this little girl's room. Colorful tassels line the edge of the curtains for a fun and playful touch. All-white bedding complements the white nightstand while an ornate pink and cream headboard uses the same colors in the patterned wallpaper.
Designer Claire Paquin created a little girl's bedroom with room to grow by using a neutral color palette and adding pops of colors for fun. The design remains sophisticated enough to grow into teen years but still functions well for a 3-year-old child. The rug and walls are in soft gray tones, and upholstered armchairs are comfortable and inviting.
A jungle theme appears throughout this eclectic boy's room. The space features a contemporary white nightstand with intricate carving detail and a trio of squared mirrors on each door. A white table lamp and white animal figures on the wall and nightstand tie in the overall theme while the roman shade with black trim complements the neutral decor and allows for adjustable natural lighting.
