Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you‘ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night‘s sleep without one waking the other. Creating a play area that both siblings can enjoy, even simultaneously, is super helpful, especially for tired mommies and daddies. Floor mats, cushions and soft larger items like a rocking horse and tents are perfect to outline the area and fun for both to play in. Place your older child`s toys in accessible storage containers, but higher than the floor so your youngest can‘t easily touch it.
Add a soft touch of texture to your bedroom by hanging a rug on the wall as a headboard alternative. A standard 5×8 rug is wide enough to match a queen size, 60 wide mattress. An Indian dhurrie-style rug (shown above) is the easiest type of rug to work with, since it’s lightweight and thin. Find a unique wall panel or room screen and hang it as a headboard. Geometrically-patterned screens or room dividers create the most contemporary impact. For extra contrast, remove the screen's boring paper backing and paint the screen's frame in a color that ties into your bedroom's decor. There are many types of headboards you can create using fabric.
For a modern bedroom that highlights your bedding, tie in your accent color theme with your bedroom‘s headboard, a wallpaper wall behind the bed or bold, large wall art.
