When decorating a kids room, obnoxiously colored walls don‘t have to be your first step. In fact, we believe that keeping walls white or gray and adding in smaller bits of color gives you even more possibilities to make a kids room creative and playful. That, and it will keep you from repainting when they outgrow lime green or Barbie pink walls in three years. Trust us. When it comes to finding colorful accents, first consider what your child already has. Children‘s books and stuffed animals are often fun colors, so put them in a place that doubles as decor. Wall decals, bedding, and rugs all can add color and pattern to a kids room, but can be easily changed with age.
If you are a non-conformist, the SAIC Sling Nightstand/Side Table is for you. The sophisticated piece was designed for CB2 in collaboration with students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It’s on-trend in a hand-finished brass tone and features a leather sling for magazines, books or other items. Break up the hard edges and angles in a bedroom with a pair of Penelopes, available in two sizes (18″ or 24″ round) designed to fit any space. One drawer is the perfect catch-all for all the clutter you’d rather not leave out. The striking look of marble with a warm wood stain, antique brass detailing and tapered legs add a mid-century touch. If you’re looking to add a pop of color to your bedroom, give the Campaign nightstand a look. Available in bright fuchsia, kelly green or white, with brass-finished brackets and pulls, it’s bound to add life to the room.
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.
Though the tree was the biggest and most time-consuming part of the project, he also installed hardwood floors, painted the walls and picked out customized decorations with little help.
The clean-lined Modrest nightstand features an interesting asymmetrical detail. White painted glass gives it a fresh, modern look regardless of how long you’ve owned it. The two large drawers will hold nearly anything you keep around your bed. Whichever style you choose, make the look your own; just remember to consider function as well as style when selecting a modern nightstand for your bedroom. We hope these ideas have inspired you!
