When it comes to designing spaces for your children, it’s important to think long-term about how the space will be used. It should be functional and reflect their personality. Because children grow up so quickly, their needs for storage, a space to play, and a place to hang out with friends and study changes fairly quickly. Thinking about these things initially will prevent you from having to redesign the space every few years. So how can you design a chic and functional space they’ll love?
In any bedroom, the bed is the focal point. But when it comes to creating the perfect bed, many people tend to overlook one thing – the pillows! There are many different shapes and sizes of decorative throw pillows – square pillows, rectangular lumbars, Euro shams and bolster pillows…So how do you determine which size works best for your bed? And the answer is that it all really depends on the bed size.
Spring has just begun, and we’re thinking about the beach already! Our showed one of our latest projects in sunny Galveston, Texas. This home has us in the mood for summer breezes, with a cool drink in hand.
We are so excited to have received the professional pictures from this project (thanks Julie Soefer Photography!), and we thought we’d take a look at some of our favorite rooms these next couple of weeks: today, one of the guest bedrooms and baths!
[ezcol_1half]The homeowner asked for plenty of space for family to spend their summer holidays, and the cozy yet airy bunk beds help fill this need admirably! (I love the way the top bunk seems to float in midair!)
With touches of the same watery cerulean accents found throughout the rest of the home, the aesthetic is bright, white, and cool—lots of family memories to be made here!
I also love the wavy pattern of the area rug (seen below, from the bath), which neatly ties in our nautical, sea-touched theme.
The bath continues the beachy theme with the beadboard detail on the doors of the cabinetry. The deeper teal blue on the cabinetry adds a little gravitas to the room. And isn’t that porthole mirror just so fitting?
Next week, we’ll feature another couple of rooms from our beach getaway project. For more of our favorite interior images follow us on ![/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end][/ezcol_1half_end]
See you then!
