Providing basic shelter is one of the most important things a parent can do. But these kids rooms do much more than provide basic shelter. With color, patterns, and custom furnishings, these rooms nurture creative thoughts from every angle. Along the way they manage to provide comfort and even organization from cozy study nooks to swinging hammock chairs to stunningly creative beds, these rooms would be the envy of everyone in the classroom and surely the sight of many boisterous sleepovers.
The first room comes from architect Agnieszka Ufnal and takes its design inspiration from the hustle and bustle of New York City life, although in a serene way. The highly organized space, designed for a school-aged girl, uses swaths of bright yellow to create the kinetic feel of taxicabs in Times Square. When paired with simple line drawings and graphic wallpaper, the resulting room is both playful and sophisticated, much like a urban-dwelling child is expected to be.
This next room takes the use of color to a new level although it manages its own affinity for yellow. In addition to the sunny chairs and blankets, the geometric pattern that plays on the accent wall and the area rug are extremely energetic. This space also includes a large desk and hanging shelves, making it easy for the room to grow along with its inhabitant.
In the third room we have what can only be described as the most enviable child’s bed design we’ve ever seen. The hot air balloon-inspired look is straight out of a storybook and is sure to be the source of many sweet dreams. The airborne theme is carried through the rest of the room as well with a hanging biplane and a dangling hammock chair for the ultimate in coziness.
The final room is a bit more muted than the others in this post, but still manage to play with color and texture. The blue and white room calls to mind the colors of clouds and rainstorms, but plenty of natural light keeps things on the sunny side. A spotted area rug, bean bag chair, and bunk beds make this room an ideal retreat for a tween.
