A Room for Little Ones

December 16, 2011

This little boy’s room is near perfection. A soft rug to play on (I hope those wood floors are not as splintery as they look), a cheerful color on the walls, a bright red tent to hide in, absolutely adorable art, and a couple pieces that don’t look at all childish: the dresser and chandelier. I love kids rooms that have a handful of “grown-up” elements. Photographed by Russell Smith via desire to inspire.

I still have a hard time with the meaningless random letter(s) on the wall trend, but it seems to work quite well in this child’s room. Who knows, maybe it isn’t meaningless to the homeowners. The home of Julie Klear and Moulay Essakalli (and their two children) via the style files.

What a fantastic example of a real, lived-in, multi-functional room. Doubling as home office and play room, I hope this makes getting some work done much simpler for mom and dad as their young one is happily entertained nearby. The home of Nerissa and Peter (and little Luna) via Design*Sponge.

This space is a little bewildering. It is expansive and quite dark and more than a little bit bohemian. It rather looks like a hip young couple living in a loft just had a baby and are a bit unsure where to put the guy. This works for now, I suppose! The simple use of panels draped around the crib is cute and cozy. From Nomad by Sibella Court, photographed by Chris Court, via desire to inspire.

Love the dark blue-greens used in this room, and that built-in bunk-bed is awesome. Designed by Kristen Panitch via House of Turquoise.

Speaking of bunk beds! (And, oddly enough, more Ugly Dolls). This look is clearly a bit impractical for most of us, but it is easy to imagine the fun children would have in these cave-like cocoons in the wall. The home of Alexandre de Betak via The New York Times Style Magazine via my ideal home.

Look how simple this room is and yet so charming! I’m intrigued by the headboard-like paint treatment around the bed. Designed by Alexandra Angle.

I love this. Bold color, quirky details, and so very playful. A child’s room is probably the only place I’d ever dare use such a wacky rug. What do you think?  Designed by Alexandra Angle.
