After: Bright and Cheerful Boys' Room with Mario Prints and Extra Storage
Make a space that will last. “You don’t want things to be temporary. You want things that they can grow with,” said Cate Dunning of GordonDunning, who decorated this bedroom as part of a Dwell with Dignity install. This bedroom was for three boys who loved Super Mario Brothers and the Atlanta Falcons, so GordonDunning incorporated red accented with blue and hung framed Mario art prints from Etsy on the wall. The beds were already in the room, and DIY blogger Dena Stormer painted them with Sherwin Williams Positive Red.

A built-in desk has ample shelving while a large mirror sliding door conceals the closet space across from the bed.
In this New York bedroom, 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.
