Did you love the cool, colorful kids’ room design inspiration from J&J Design Group? Well, I’ve got some more really fun kids’ rooms for you today, this time from the San Francisco Decorator Showcase. The common thread among all of these room designs is that they use lively colors and patterns to create a space that kids will love without resorting to overly youthful design themes that won’t age well as the room’s occupant grows. See how they did it …
Sky blue, turquoise and orange is a masculine color combo that’s both young enough to appeal to a pre-teen boy and mature enough for a high-school guy. The room has a sort of urban skater vibe thanks to the ombre lacquer walls and ceiling by Willem Racke and designer Susan Lind Chastain’s selection of Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fangio fabric on the daybed’s pillows.
Pale pinks are popular choices for girl’s spaces, but the hot pinks and fuchsia selected by Nest Design Co. make for a slightly more grown-up bathroom that works well into the teenage years and possibly beyond. The pouty lip wallpaper pattern adds a kiss of sassiness to the space, while brass and marble supply additional touches of a mature space.
On its own, midnight blue might seem too traditional and dull of a choice for a kids’ space. In this playroom designed by Allison Caccoma, it serves as a not-so-neutral background to the more fun green, orange and light blue accent palette. Kids will also love the textures in this space — the walls are covered with suede; the sofa is made from velvet; and the table has textured, lacquered finish!
Like the girl’s bathroom, her bedroom, designed by Amy Weaver, offers mature takes on common kids’ colors: pink and blue. The French Louis chairs are a traditional, grown-up selection, but the hot pink and turquoise fabrics make the chairs more youthful.
The boy’s bathroom, designed by Gregg De Meza also offers a slick, urban vibe thanks to the bold, yellow “no diving” sign painted by an actual street artist. The artwork adds a fun, youthful touch to a bathroom that can easily suit an adult or kid.
