In all of the years I have designed rooms, designing a tree to cascade over a bed or crib is by far my most requested design. There is something really magical about the illusion of sleeping in the forest of a fairytale or magic garden. Breaking the boundaries of the interior by incorporating the walls and ceiling of a room is very powerful…especially when the child who sleeps under it is 3 feet tall.
Here we are again at Feisty Friday, and I’m going to introduce you to two little girls who give feisty a new meaning. This is Karsen (on the left) and Marin (on the right.) They are two 10-year-old girls who have been bitten by the interior design bug this summer. With some imagination and perseverance, they created something amazing and beautiful from something boring and common. I interviewed them to get the real story. Enjoy!
Today we are cheering on Shari Stamps from the chic and sassy website Popsugar.com, more specifically Popsugar Moms. Emphasizing the importance of fun and inspiration when designing a kid’s room, Juvenile Hall Design had two of their room designs chosen to represent the cause.
If you have a kid who digs up bugs, collects rocks or spends more time identifying plants than running on the soccer field, you may have a budding little scientific genius on your hands. There is a lot of emphasis in education today on “group projects.” Schools have swung towards assigning group projects as a way of teaching tolerance and cooperation. That is important, of course. But what if your kid prefers the route of the introvert?
Last week I started a summer series called Feisty Fridays. Since we are well into those lazy days of summer, I thought we would shake things up a bit in the world of kids room design. Today it’s…well, as you can see naming this post is a challenge. Taxidermy! Funny, bold, sophisticated, whimsical, and perfect for a personal touch in a kid’s room. Enjoy!
