It’s no secret that kid rooms are some of the most fun spaces to plan and decorate. You can get away with using lots of color, quirky art prints, and unique bedding, but these spaces can also work just as well when they’re a little more sophisticated and subdued. Doing so creates an environment that is calm and serene, yet still lighthearted….a room both kids and parents can enjoy.
The key is to stick to a clean, neutral palette, add in some well-designed furniture pieces, and be sure to include plenty of great graphic prints here and there.

These stacked rattan footstools are calling my name. Not only are they super textural but they also become an instant focal point in the room. And, once baby doesn’t need a rocker anymore, both the chair and the footstools can easily be transitioned to another room in the house. Boom.

Using a one-note color palette may initially seem boring, but this adorable room proves otherwise. All the soft gray tones provide the perfect backdrop for a few subtle pops of black and white. Also, I want that bear pillow…just sayin’.

Now this is how you do a library wall. The wrapped antlers above the floating shelves add the perfect whimsical touch and I love the idea of adding the stacked classic art prints beneath.

When planning a minimal kid room, you can never go wrong with taking a few notes from Scandinavian design. Bright white walls and floors provide just the right contrast for bold patterns and dark gray bedding. The loft space and low platform beds help to create the ultimate modern space.

Sometimes all you need is a great accent wall, like this rich wood version, and the rest of the room just comes together on its own. Although, awesome furry pillows and a killer ceiling pendant never hurts either.
