Designer Rooms for Kids and Preteens
Posted August 28th, 2012 | by The Update
Send your kids back to school in style! Check out these fun and chic ideas for designer rooms for kids and preteens:
For a family home in New York, designer Pat Healing let each child select their colors. Le Temple Des Grecs wallpaper by Studio Printworks to give a girl’s room graphic punch. Bel Tempo bedding by Matouk.
“Kids’ rooms should be colorful, but they don’t have to be girly pink or boyish blue,” designer Todd Nickey says. For the boy’s room in this California house by designers Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe, Weego Baby furniture was painted yellow to coordinate with Cath Kidston’s Cowboy wallpaper and a vintage circus-sign light.
This stylish space mixes patterns, color, and fabrics to create the perfect blend of chic in a girl’s room in a Connecticut house. Designer Sally Markham included a decorative headboard to “ground the room, kind of like a fireplace mantel,” she says. Donghia fabric covers the Markham-designed bed frame. Bed linens are by Kate Spade.
Black can actually work for a teenager’s room. Just add pops of bright color, like a graphic pillow, to keep the space from feeling too stark. Designer Windsor Smith painted her son’s room in their Los Angeles home in the hue for a rock-star feeling.
Amanda Nisbet designed her preteen daughter’s room in their New York apartment to be considered but cheery. She used a pink, brown, and navy scheme and included playful, graphic art. “It’s a room she can grow into,” Nisbet says. The extra-tall headboard and the window shade are Canovas’s Montego Tourmaline within navy-blue cotton tape. The carpet is Stark’s Beaton in brown.
