Contrary to popular belief, designing a kids room is not as easy as it sounds. Designing a room that will be appropriate for a younger kid growing up can be tricky, as kids preferences change drastically from year to year, depending on current trends, new Disney characters, or simply just because of growing up. What is their favorite thing now, they could outgrow in as little as in a few months.
This is why I created this post, to point out the most important points to consider when designing a kids room. Links to products are all below, on images and in links.
With Pinterest being the source of inspiration to many, people are constantly saving images of spaces and things that inspire them. It sometimes gets difficult when they can’t find the source of the products they like or simply something similar with lower budget in mind.
On the blog, I will post some popular interior images from time to time and help you find similar items to help you ” Get the look”.
Some brands in the design world are considered trend setters. This lovely Miami apartment is furnished by Fendi Casa as part of their advertising campaign a couple of years ago. Without further ado, I will post below a board I created with items inspired by the above living room. Each item is numbered and linked below the mood board.
Hope you like it, let me know what you think and if there are specific rooms you would like me to help you “get the look” for.
As you probably noticed by now, I love creating room scenes and styling rooms with lovely furniture and accessories. My favorite themes usually include neutrals especially when it comes to homes. No matter what the function of the room is, I like it to be timeless and elegant. In this post, I chose gold and greyish beige (greige) tones . These pieces are perfect for a daily living room, comfortable yet elegant to receive guests as well.
Below I will be listing every item shown with links and specifications.
As an interior designer, I find all rooms important in their own ways, the bathroom specifically is the most intimate room, it is the first room you go to when you wake up and the last when you go to sleep. It should be comforting, uncluttered, nicely styled ,and fits all necessary bathroom items. For instance, I never design a bathroom without a cupboard, unless it is a stylish guest bathroom then I skip it depending on the style of the sink. Other staples are having glass shower doors as opposed to curtains. I love the mirror to be extra large and preferably with space to store medication etc..
In this board, I used large grey tiles for the entire bathroom, walls and floor, and the Chevron patterned tiles to be used on 1 feature wall, could be the one behind the toilet seat.
Below there is a description and link to each of the above products. Please refer to the relevant links for technical details. Tiles are priced either by sq. foot or piece, or by specific quantities sold by the manufacturer. Calculate quantities prior to purchasing. All details are from the links provided.
One of the trickiest rooms to style is the dining room. As much as the table seems to play the biggest role, I always believe it’s the chair that makes or breaks a dining room. If I were on a budget, I would go for a moderately priced table, after all you will only see the top, the base is usually covered with the chairs. The chairs should be comfortable, yet stylish, I would splurge on those if I can. My next priority would be a beautiful chandelier or suspension depending on the ceiling height available. For the buffet, I always like to go for a statement design that would act as an art piece. Hope you liked the mood board above, below I will break it down into details and you can click on each image for source.
I love working on mood-boards, I can never start a project without it. Today I felt like a grey interior would look nice, as an accent color I added a blush pink only in hints. What is cool about adding color in minimal doses, is that when you tire of a color you can always change it without throwing away anything major. A neutral base is very flexible and forgiving, I loved adding marble, a chevron printed rug, a gorgeous Kelly Wearstler table lamp, some nice table accessories, and a breezy curtain. I curated these online, below you will find details of each item in the collage above and a link in case you would like to purchase!
