Inspiration:

We wanted to create a serene and pretty space with a touch of boho for this newborn baby girl.

What was the client’s hope for the space?

Our client wanted her daughter’s room to be a special and timeless space that could easily transition with her child into a “big girl” room.

How was the space planned?

We began with carefully drawn floor plans to ensure we had ample room for all the “zones” that were requested, including sleeping, feeding, changing, open floor play, and a cozy spot to read or for Mom to rest (during those late-night wakings).

Favorite part:

We love the beautiful pastel and metallic watercolor paper — we feel it set the tone for this serene nursery.

What is one thing every kid’s room should have?

A cozy spot to read and cuddle.

Inspiration:

This room was inspired by animals and global travels, with animal artwork throughout, animal figurines, animal-print bedding, and a tepee, which evokes the feeling of safari travel. That said, the gray, navy, and white colors in the room create a calm and relaxing feel, far from the typical oranges, yellows, and browns that you often see in a room such as this.

What was the client’s hope for the space?

The client is a 3-year-old boy, in a brand-new “big boy” bed. The family were hoping the room would serve their son as a place to sleep, play, and relax. They wanted to showcase animals, which their son loves, but were hesitant about creating a mainstream safari-themed room that would grow old quickly.

How was the spaced planned?

This is a small room with little storage and wall space, so the floor plan had to be perfect. The built-in closets solved the storage issue and tied into the room with navy owl doorknobs, and the bed fits perfectly between the opposite wall and the window. The smart spacing of the furniture allowed us to add a bookcase area without the room feeling cramped.

Favorite part:

I love the color palette in this room and the small details that tie it all together — the bedding, the doorknobs, and the animal decals.

What is one thing every kid’s room should have?

A bookcase or any form of book storage. It’s not only great for books but also an ideal place to showcase other small items, like picture frames and mementos.

Inspiration:

The room was inspired by the overall design goal for the home: to create a new construction that felt like it had been there for 200 years but had been updated for today’s lifestyle. To achieve this, we used reclaimed wood for the floors, exposed beams in the ceiling, and mixed in antique furniture with new pieces. The burnt-red accent wall was a nod to historical paint colors and also helped make the room feel more cozy and inviting despite the tall ceilings.

What was the client’s hope for the space?

The clients were a Brooklyn couple with two young children. This is their second home, so they were therefore willing to take more chances with the design.

How was the space planned?

The client’s son requested a bunk bed, so that became the starting point for the space.

Favorite part:

I love the unusual color palette for a boy. Most boys’ rooms incorporate “sporty” colors… brighter blues and other accent colors, but this historical palette means that the space can easily be transformed into an adult’s space by simply replacing the bed and floor chest.

What is one thing every kid’s room should have?

Plenty of storage to put away all the toys and keepsakes kids tend to collect.

Inspiration:

We bring the fun and whimsy to kids’ rooms. Clementine (our little client) has a bubbly personality and loves creating colorful art. Rainbows were a natural inspiration for her, so incorporating them on all four walls was the way to go. This created a dynamic and fun vibe.

What was the client’s hope for the space?

The clients are a young family of four, with two girls, ages 2 and 4. They wanted a space to reflect their daughter’s personality — energetic and colorful. Also, because she was transitioning from a nursery, they wanted a “big girl” bed that allowed room for her parents to snuggle up for storytime with her and their younger daughter too.

How was the space planned?

The space was planned as a transition from nursery to “big girl” room, so we wanted it to grow with her and remain stylistically relevant for years to come. Neon lights are always cool. The rainbows on the wall are not wallpaper but actually fabric decals, which could be easily removed in the future, and the main pieces of furniture are neutral enough to pair with new decor, should she choose, when she gets older. The swivel chair, for example, is sophisticated enough that it could easily work well in an adult’s space!

Favorite part:

We loved all the whimsical touches: the neon light, puppy pillow, the art, and the unexpected feather lamp. While there are multiple elements of fun in this room, put together, they create a whimsical feel.

What is one thing every kid’s room should have?

Functionally, a kid’s room should grow with the child. And aesthetically, it should have a sense of humor or whimsy!
