While comfort is an essential component of sleep, we wanted to find a pillow that combined the best of both worlds. The Pacific Coast Double DownAround Firm (quite a mouthful), our pick for the best bed pillow, is technically two in one, offering both a comfortable cushion and firm support. As with most things in life, we found that the most expensive option isn‘t necessarily the best. You‘d probably be healthier sleeping on the floor than dropping on a pillow that likely won‘t ever live up to your expectations, and will cause financial strain.
A wall mural or painting can be a great headboard. If you're wanting a softer more padded effect, paint or print your art on a large canvas, mount it to a frame and pad the backside for a custom, upholstered art headboard. Use a collection of smaller art store canvases to create an artsy gallery headboard wall. Paint them in a semi or high-gloss, bold color for a contemporary look, like the bedroom shown below. You could also used recycled cardboard boxes if pre-stretched canvases are expensive. Paint the sides in a contrasting color to add dimension.
Even the industrial feel of corrugated sheet metal can be softened by an intricate decorative cut. Metal may not be appealing to every taste, but there are a lot of options for the DIYer to make a signature headboard from this versatile material. Even more than the creative potential in the first three categories, free-form headboards give you endless design freedom. You can use almost anything: pillows grouped into a display, pieces of driftwood or bamboo against the wall, vintage books adhered to a piece of backing.
Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you‘ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night‘s sleep without one waking the other. Creating a play area that both siblings can enjoy, even simultaneously, is super helpful, especially for tired mommies and daddies. Floor mats, cushions and soft larger items like a rocking horse and tents are perfect to outline the area and fun for both to play in. Place your older child`s toys in accessible storage containers, but higher than the floor so your youngest can‘t easily touch it.
Laughing…crying…playing…fighting. A shared sibling bedroom is a beehive of activity and needs. And that means there`s a lot for parents to tackle when creating their kids' shared bedroom. With twice the amount (or more) of evolving personalities and necessities, it`s often a daunting task for parents to accommodate storage, space and the individual style of each child. Designing a room for a brother and a sister doesn`t have to be challenging. In fact, it`s probably the easiest challenge to overcome when planning a shared room. To complement your underlying palette, layer complementary colors and patterns on top of that. For example in a grey and white room, try accenting with yellow accessories.
