Children's & Kid's Rooms - Colorful and Fun Inspirations

Recently, I had a request to do a post on Children's rooms and
Nurseries. This post is to give inspiration for kid's rooms. I
always wished I had a pink princess bedroom when I was young.
I think I would have been in heaven with a canopy bed like the
one above. I used to build tents anyways for fun inside the house
to sleep in.

This Citrus Green is energizing and sure to
hold the attention of any child. The quilted
bedding are in fun bright colors as well.

I think Candace Olson is a genius when it comes to
design and she does very well with kid's rooms as
well. She took this small room and managed to fit
all of these things in the room - complete with a
lounging chair, spacious desk area for homework, a
mirrored dresser and a beautiful canopy bed.

If this isn't a beautiful princess bedroom, I don't know what
is. I've seen many people try to make a room like this but
they fall short by making it too kitschy or not using the right
materials. What's nice about this room is that it can be easily
changed as the child grows. Candace used high end materials
and traditional touches such as molding and etc.

as well as issues to think about - such as designing rooms
that can be easily adapted to a growing child.

Karen thank you for this post!!! I am adopting again and looking at these inspiration rooms for little girls is a thrill!

Jennifer Lee said...

I really like the Candace Olson designed room. Pink and black is always a classic mix but I love kids rooms that don't look to childish. I think for kids, because they grow up so fast you can't make it too themey. Great images.


Erin said...

What a great collection!! I love all the color. I think the 2nd room is my favorite...that canopy bed is gorgeous! :)

Honestly Karen, I'd stay in one of those rooms myself!! I love the green room, so refreshing. The header at my blog was a picture of Cameron Highlands, taken 5000 feet above sea level, it was a tea plantation. Have a good week :D

Candace Olson is a genius. I love the princess bedroom, and the zebra print chair! I love how the room is painted pink and has white boards as an accent. Please forgive as I don't know what that's called, but that is exactly what I would like done in my bedroom...only painted gray or light blue/with white accents.

Syana said...

do kids really live in those kind of rooms ? Some are made for princesses!

I think the 5th one looks like a doll house, so cute


Emma said...

Great rooms- but only for girls! I'm currently looking for some ideas to redesign my boys room. I really like DucDuc furniture (clean lines, modern) but the price...OMG...
Anyway, I'm saving some ideabooks at for some
inspiration so take a look when you get a chance...

I just love looking at children's bedrooms. These are all great. We are redoing my son's room right at this moment since he's getting older so I've been trying to look for some inspiration, but I guess since I am a girl myself it seems like the girls rooms are always more fun to check out! Daisy~
