The star of your bedroom may be the bed, but don‘t count out nightstands as an essential part of the room. A bedroom without a bedside table means that things like your clock, smartphone, books and lamps are without a home. When choosing nightstands, be mindful of the space available. Smaller spaces may not be able to handle more than one bedside table. Mix it up, if you are so inclined; the matching nightstand rule was made to be broken. Don‘t be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you‘ll want to make sure your table isn‘t too high or low.
A free-form headboard can infuse your personality and interests into a one-of-a kind creation. If it is your passion, it can become a focal point in your bedroom; with a free-form design, the ceiling`s the limit. Similar to free-form headboards in their ability to capture your interests, art-based headboards have just a little more structure. Cover canvases with fabric or paint and group them on the wall over your bed. Framing pictures of loved ones or locales makes the most personalized of headboards, as does a backdrop of favorite quotes.
A mix of geometric prints, a flying washi tape airplane, and a few knick-knacks turn this kids room into a space to dream and create. The accents of triangles, stripes, and circles in this room add interest and playfulness to this Scandinavian space. Someone loves foxes, and we love this room. Though highly modern, the wood paneling, teepee-style bookshelf, and tent bed make this room positively kiddish and outdoorsy. If there’s one example of the power of accent pieces, this is it. Throw blankets and pillows bring out the colors of a tropical print, and the result is a kids room as tranquil as the beach itself.
When decorating a kids room, obnoxiously colored walls don‘t have to be your first step. In fact, we believe that keeping walls white or gray and adding in smaller bits of color gives you even more possibilities to make a kids room creative and playful. That, and it will keep you from repainting when they outgrow lime green or Barbie pink walls in three years. Trust us. When it comes to finding colorful accents, first consider what your child already has. Children‘s books and stuffed animals are often fun colors, so put them in a place that doubles as decor. Wall decals, bedding, and rugs all can add color and pattern to a kids room, but can be easily changed with age.
Though the walls are neutral, this room is packed with colors and patterns that pop. Even teenage girls wouldn’t mind sharing this room. Pink textiles and a strand of feminine garland are all this gray room needs to become the perfect place for a growing girl. A bold wallpaper can be mostly monotoned and still make a big statement in a kids room. So many sweet accent pieces in this room, but we love the ombre dresser, bed pillows, and pompom rug. A statement wall does just that, and does it exceptionally well with the addition of a sun and a few pillowy-cloud decals. Call it the room of our dreams.
