Child's Play

I loved seeing  Paula's latest design project featured on her blog today. Her darling 4 year old got the room redo  she wanted and I’m in heaven. Ellie I’ll move into your room in a heart beat!


I was once again reminded that a child’s room does not need to look like a cookie cutter image straight out of a catalog.

Take a peek at some more sophisticated yet fun kid’s/tween’s rooms:

Pink and Orange is always a winning combo in my eyes. I love the mixture of patterns and I think the white walls really help the room POP!


Here is another take on the pink and orange combo. It’s completely different, but I enjoy it as well. I think any tween girl would live their happily.


This following room just screams glamour to me. Love that they went away from the traditional pink room most girls enjoy and had fun with blue,white and black. Plus I spy a ghost chair and that is always a must have!


Staying in the same color family we have a different take on it below. There are still touches of glam with the fur poof, touch of lucite and zebra. In addition to that amazing window seat, which I always wanted in my room.


Below we have a similar color palette as well, but this room is a bit more young lady than tween. I love the fabric covered message board and of course the stuffed monkey is such a sweet addition to the room.


Last, but not least is the combo of pink and green. Always a favorite in decor and I love the way it was used in this room as well. The mix of the polka dots and stripes is perfection and I totally want to curl up in that pink loveseat.


I know the rooms featured above are a bit over the top and very high-design looking, but I think they are great points of inspiration for when you are decorating your own child’s room to remember to have a bit more fun, experiment with colors and patterns and always be stylish.

I love that blue room with the ghost chair - I'm a big fan of kids having rooms they can grow with - not anything that's stuck in too much of a theme. All of these images are beautiful!

I would honestly love to have any of those rooms! haha. Even now. I just love when they are so simple but then when I get in a room I have so much stuff and have to make it all do double duty :P One day!

Camila, as a mother to a nine year old, I completely agree! Pictures of her room are back on my blog somehwere, and what I love most is how hers is unique to her personality and likes. It will easily transition as she gets older.

Of course, I say that now, but when she hits her teen years I just may redo it again just for some mother-daughter fun.

Thank you for many beautiful and inspiring rooms for our little ladies.

I love pink and green combo...I think it is wonderful.

I'm trying to think of a color combo for my master bedroom for when I move. I want it to be neutral enough that Prince Phillip doesn't feel like he's staying in a girl's room. :)

these are all great rooms and i definitely want my (hypothetical) child to have a room that she/he can grow into as opposed to out of.

love, love, love all the images. I agree with you about how a kids room shouldn't have to be a cookie cutter version of a catalogue. I'm loving the red and orange combination.

Amazingly simple yet chic designs. The Pink and Orange is an interesting combination
especially towards the window. Yet the one that wins it is the blue, especially that
amazing window seat setup. Love it, love it.
