Give them room to grow
Investing in essential pieces that are versatile enough to grow up with your little one gives you a base to layer age-appropriate accents so you can avoid needing to re-haul everything at every stage.
Start with a streamlined dresser, a bed that can transition from one age to the next, versatile nightstands, and even lighting that will evolve with the space over time.
Patterns bring so much dimension and energy to a design, kids’ spaces provide the perfect opportunity to go bold. Whether you’re going bold with wallpaper or layering in patterned textiles, don’t be afraid to mix and match for a playful look.
Layer in soft seating
When designing kids’ rooms, we always try to create more seating with soft rocking or swivel chairs in the corner that can later be used for a reading nook, layered ottomans, or even end-of-bed benches. Considering seating pieces that can be used by both you and your kids throughout different stages is a great place to start. Even a more mature chair and ottoman pairing can be styled with pillows and throws for a playful touch!
Add personality with styled mementos
Although we love using baskets for hiding away toys and books, displaying a few favorites as decor makes for easy access and added personality. Hanging a pinboard or memo board is another great way to create a space for things like photos, movie tickets, or other mementos.
Bring in playful artwork
We love to use artwork to incorporate a child’s personality into their space, so it really reflects them. When choosing artwork, stick with more playful prints to keep their room youthful. Animals, florals, and other fun images will make their room feel unique and personal to them.
