Although I don’t have kids, their spaces have always been one of my favorites to pull together. I love the whimsy that comes with a child’s room and the playful layers that can elevate very basic designs. Obviously a lot of the kids rooms we see in magazines and online are bit over the top for the everyday household, but I am all about extracting the essence of those rooms to replicate in small accents. I always love when a child’s room is an extension of the home and doesn’t scream thematic or baby. Something they can grow with and evolve into over the years. If the building blocks lean more classic you can add in accents like fun wallpaper or bedding that can be swapped out over time. I tend to be drawn to completely opposing styles with these spaces in particular since I equally enjoy very layered pattern on pattern and more of a timeless neutral look. I think overall nurseries and children’s spaces are moving into a more classic realm that feels playful and cool, but has an antique element to it as well – bringing in the essential touch of character.

Both wallpaper and classic wall paneling create such different, yet beautiful rooms
I would have killed for this canopy bed as a child and I still would today – I love that this could be a twin bunk room or a primary bedroom if it was a single, larger bed. The design feel playful simply by the use of pattern and the canopy style bed. I love it all!
