Today we are not only revealing more of our California Cool Project, but we are also sharing how we tackle design for kids' spaces! Children always hold a special place in our hearts- we love fostering their creativity and finding unique ways to make their rooms feel special. Scroll through to read about four ways you can create a cohesive and fun kid's space!
1. Custom Built-in Bunk Beds. First of all, we always focus on the hard finishes (or anything attached to the walls, floors, etc.) Any type of built-in bunk will instantly add character and something extra to the room. We incorporated a small space underneath one of the bunks that we decided to turn into a cozy reading nook. Of course, we needed some reading shelves for both rooms for bedtime books. Shelfology had just what we needed!
We renovated the entire home and put these wide plank engineered oak floors throughout for a consistent base. We kept them in the bedrooms as well, then added plush rugs for comfort.
2. Patterns. One of best ways to make a room fun is to mix patterns. We worked with SO many different patterns in these rooms...plaid, stripes, buffalo check, grid, triangles, diamonds, etc. Even the details of the dressers, mirrors, roman shades, rugs, bedding, and pillows had a fun pattern. You really can go all out with the patterns as long as the colors tie in with one another. The more the merrier!
