Christina and I headed over to Naperville yesterday to finish accessories for a little boy’s room. We had previously done this little boy’s brother’s room and he was super excited to have his turn and had one request: to have a room that he could hang out in with friends. His parents wanted a room that he could grow up with and that they wouldn’t have to redo in a few years. Keeping both requests in mind we put together a space that we felt could balance between youthful and young adult by utilizing various textures and keeping the color palette refined and neutral. The daybed serves as a hangout sofa when friends are over and the ottoman has hidden storage so legos and toys can easily be stored. Creating a kid’s room is a fun diversion from the more formal living spaces we typically work on and challenges us to create an environment that is truly functional and playful.
