Designing a kids rooms is great because it allows you to push the creative envelope and create a space that inspires creativity and imagination. The inspiration for this room, came from my client, she requested a woodland theme, and it was up to me to bring that to life in a way that was subtle and not over the top.

The grey lower half of the wall is actually chalkboard paint. This provides a creative outlet, but even if it’s not used, adds a nice detail to the space.
I loveeeee the adorable table and chairs I found on Wayfair, the blue detail works well with the room. I intentionally used varying colours of blue to help the space feel more dynamic. I find too many people stick with one colour and repeat it throughout the room making it feel a bit one dimensional and matchy-matchy. And if you’ve read any of my blogs or watched my videos, than you know how I feel about being matchy-matchy. No beuno.
Picture ledges serve as book shelves providing additional storage, the books also double as art in the room. As her little guy grows, these ledges can be used to display his creations or eventually just framed art.
The custom window shade infuses colour, I often recommend that clients invest in custom window treatments. Not only do they look more polished but having the ability to select the exact fabric and darkness you want makes it worth the investment.
Sometimes you gotta just embrace certain elements in a space by turning them into art, or something playful, like we did with this radiator!
Let me know what you think, I love this adorable little room and from what I’ve heard he’s been having some great sleeps in his new house bed, I hope he’s also feeling inspired and creative here as well!
