In all of our project reveals, we always look forward to the day when we can share the kids’ spaces! At our Nellie Gail project, we’ve got three special spaces to reveal today – The girl’s room, boys’ bunk room, and cute shared bath. Designing kids rooms is a fun opportunity for our design team to play with color and pattern in new ways, and you’ll definitely see that reflected in the kids bedroom ideas below. Keep scrolling to see all of the details and read more about the design of each space!
This sweet girl’s room is the embodiment of our clients’ wish list: A feminine, pretty, pink explosion. As the only girl in the family, there were no boundaries for our design team and they were able to combine all of their favorite feminine details into one joyful space.
The existing room had amazing high ceilings, so we accentuated them with a beautiful floral-inspired chandelier. From there, we picked out a pretty pink wallpaper with a floral stripe pattern, and painted out all of the trim, closet doors, casing, and beam in a matching pink accent color.
The bed frame is a family heirloom that worked perfectly within the design. We added custom pillows in the same print as the wallpaper, along with pink floral sheets and a cozy throw blanket. One of our favorite elements is the sweet gingham drapery we added to the french doors as well as inside the closet doors. Overall, the soft pink combined with neutral details feels perfectly childish but is still a space that she can grow into for years to come.
Jack & Jill Bath
The kids love to spend time together, so it made sense to create a Jack & Jill bath that all three of them could share. Because the space had to work for both boys and girls, we kept the design very clean and traditional.
A marble mosaic flooring adds a subtle pattern, and the accent gray vanity is the perfect gender-neutral paint color. A pair of brass sconces add warmth, and tie in the pretty brass cabinet hardware. The shower tile is more modern, and keeps the space feeling young and fresh.
Now, let’s head into the boys’ bunk room! We wanted to play off of blue hues in this space, so we picked out this bold patterned wallpaper first that carried the rest of the design. Our clients asked for a space that the two boys could grow into, so we used full-sized bunk beds instead of the traditional twin-sized mattress.
The boys love to read, so a bench seat reading nook was a must. A pair of vintage soldier lamps that had been passed down for generations brought in a pop of red, and we carried that same hue as an accent color throughout the rest of the space. Overall, it’s just the perfect, traditional, all-American boys room.
Aren’t the kids’ room reveals always so fun!? We don’t know about you, but we’ve found a few kids bedroom ideas we can’t wait to see more of.
