Kids rooms are one of my favorite spaces to design because you can be so imaginative and come up with really unique concepts that you maybe wouldn’t use in other areas of the home. I love when a child’s space is reflective of their favorite things and expresses their personality. Take a look at some of my most recent favorites below!
Space #1: Creating a Fort
Who didn’t love making forts as a kid? I love this setup because it takes what would have been unused space with a traditional style bed and creates an entirely new area. This nook is perfect for reading and hanging out in.

Space #2: Vintage Inspired
I love how this space is a mixture of old and new! By bringing in some vintage and antique style pieces you create a unique look that is all your own.
Space #3: Don’t be afraid of color!
I love the use of color in this bedroom! Although many colors are used it still manages come together in a cohesive way to make the perfect boho beachy bedroom style.

Space #4: Neutral with Pops of Color
By keeping the majority of the space neutral, you create a room that easily grows with your child. It is super easy to change out accessories and bedding over time, but being able to keep the larger pieces and introduce a whole new look is a great way to go.

Space #5: Grown Up Color Palette
Don’t be afraid to introduce mature colors that don’t normally come to mind when you think of kids spaces. The antique brass, walnut wood and forest green in this space create a look that people of all ages will love!

Space #6: Use Color in Unexpected Ways
I love how the mint color beds in this room bring the color palette full circle and tie everything together. Don’t be afraid to experiment with painting your furniture.

Space #7: Make a Statement
Wallpaper is a fairly easy way to make a huge statement in a space. This focal wall drives the color palette of the room and even with keeping the rest of the area more neutral, it definitely won’t look boring!

Space #8: Use What You Love
I think it’s important that your child’s personality is expressed throughout the space and one great way to do that is by displaying any collections they have. In the space below a record collection is framed on the wall and instantly becomes artwork. (I had this same style of artwork in my bedroom when I was younger 🙂 )

Space #9: Get Trendy
Don’t be afraid to bring in some trendy items that can be easily switched out. In the space below mud cloth, indigo and patterned wallpaper are used, but easy to switch out once new trends and interests arise.

Space #10: Something to Grow Into
This is another example of using a more mature color palette in a child’s space. This statement wallpaper is something that they can easily grow into over time and you can create lots of different looks around it over the years. I love how the wallpaper is the main inspiration and the rest of the colors are pulled directly from it.

Space #11: Maximize a Space
Built ins are my absolute favorite way to maximize a space and create storage without having to bring in lots of furniture pieces. In this space, a built in bed with drawers underneath, overhead storage, a built in desk and bench seat are all utilized.

Space #12: Bring in Greenery
Greenery is one of my favorite additions to a room and there is a type to work with any design style. The tree in the photo below works perfectly with the organic feel of the space and brings a little of the outdoors in.
