Edgy, Sweet, Custom - Teen Bedroom Design Inspiration October 14 2014, 0 Comments
Fashion and BeautyTeen girls are either completely into fashion or could care less. If your teen is a fashionista let her fashion sense take over the room.
Bright and Inviting
A pop of color on the wall is a great way to make a statement in the room. The teal, green, black and white accents make a great bold color scheme. Fun, playful and inviting, this room is a perfect place for a teenage girl to unwind.
This black walled room is brightened up with lime green, black and white. The hard edge is perfect for a teenage boy and the simplistic nature of the room makes it relaxing and inviting. Because the room is not overcrowded, there is plenty of room to spread out and unwind, something all teenagers need.
There is something about an industrial feel and sports that work so well together. Just enough edge to make the room fitting for a teenage boy.
Whatever route you choose, every teen needs a space to call their own. Let their vision pave the way.

Heart of Kansas City - Tween Bedroom Design October 08 2014, 0 CommentsWhen a tween tells you he wants a Kansas City based bedroom complete with Royals, Chiefs, Sporting KC, city buildings and skyline, you take his dream and make it a reality. That's exactly what we were called to do in our latest design and installation. We started with a simple bedroom and bathroom, that needed a unique transformation. After a meeting with our newest client and his parents, we had some great inspiration to get the ball rolling. With Kansas City as the inspiration, local sports, buildings and some very bright color choices, we took off with the design. Our brainstorming led us to the highlight of the room, the map wall. What started as just a map became a piece of art. The custom decal and photo placements are the eye-catcher. The KC Royals, roller shade was the perfect addition to the windows, especially since they arrived ready to install the week of the first Royals playoff series in 29 years. The drafting table desk and baseball chair were a fun addition that will easily adapt as he gets older. Bins for toys, laundry and other mess makers, are a great way to organize and can adapt with his need for extra storage options. With fun additions of the sports team memorabilia and a custom name wall; Dominic's Locker Room was complete. The bathroom was plain and simple, but we added a few fun touches to bring the rooms together. The license plates and metal letter D were a fun wall decoration and the custom painted, skyline, shower curtain was a great extra touch. Overall, the design was implemented perfectly and our client was quite happy. In fact his dad says he won't leave the room....ooops!

Moving past the kid stage but not a teenager quite yet. That in between stage, commonly referred to as tween, can be an awkward but exciting time in a kid's life. Many times this is the stage in life when your child is starting to show a genuine interest in certain activities. The tween bedroom can be more sophisticated than their previous rooms, giving them a feeling of being grownup instead of still a child. Having a place they can go to unwind that fits them is a much needed place in this stage in their life. Let your tween be the lead for the direction of the room design. Here are some fun rooms for your (and your tween's) inspiration!
Riding the WavesSometimes a bright pop and some decor will take you to your escape.
Take me Out to the Ballgame
Sports are a great option for a tween bedroom. Base it off the sports they play or their favorite team and your on your way.
Grow With Me
A room that will easily transition into the coming teen years, is always a great idea. Bold patterns and colors make the room sophisticated, while the tye-dye curtain adds a bit of fun.
Life's a Beach
You may recall the room design we did last year. Taking her love of dolphins and the beach we created an escape.
Sophisticated Color and Pattern
Sometimes color and pattern can make the room perfect. Pick a color scheme and make the room work with a mix of patterns and textures!
Lose Yourself in the Music
Sometimes, music is the heart and soul of a tween. They find a connection or can lose themselves in music to escape the awkward transition they are working through at the time. Music can be a great theme for a tween room that will easily transition to their teen years.
Whatever you design route your choose, try let your tween have a part in the design process. After all it should be their area to unwind and escape the day to day.

5 Storage Solutions for Your Child's Bedroom September 25 2014, 0 Comments
1. Toy BoxToy boxes are great, fun additions to the room. They can be stand alone or built ins. The nice thing about toy boxes is they come in many shapes and sizes and can work well in any room. Add a decal or paint and you can make your own unique addition to the room. One issue with a toy box is that they beg the child to just toss in everything at once, leaving no organization, more broken toys and possibly more tantrums when they cannot find that one toy they are searching for. If organization and ease are not something on the top of your list. If you just want all the toys out of site and in a confined area, then a toy box is a great option for your child's room.
Shelves are great for the larger toys in your child's collection, but can look messy when used for smaller toys. Using shelves alone may not work, but in combination with the others below can be a great option.
Drawers are great for storage of smaller items. Once they are in they can be closed for a clean look. However, if they are not organized well, they can become as much of a mess as the shelves and toy box, just hidden.
Bins and buckets are great for organizing toys into similar items. Dinosaurs in one, cars in another. You get the picture. They also hide the clutter and are found in many colors and sizes which make them a simple addition to the design you choose. You can use them in addition to shelving or a toy box for larger items and your storage is complete!
5. Closet Storage
Turn your closet into a toy storage area. Using built-ins, shelves and bins can organize the items while closing the doors will put them all out of site.Pinterest Board - Kids Rooms.

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice - Girls Bedroom Inspiration September 18 2014, 0 CommentsFrom pink and purple, princess and ballet, girls rooms are a fun splash of pizazz. Your girls personality will determine your route in a toddler girls bedroom design. While you are searching for that spark, take a look at some girl bedroom inspiration.
Outdoor Tea PartySometimes a little tea makes the day seem sweeter. Make your girls bedroom into a garden tea party oasis. The tea party set and table should be the center of attention and then decorate with beautiful flowers and butterflies. The great thing about this theme is it can be very colorful and bright or more subtle. A garden is a great place to get inspiration.
Fit for a Princess
If your girl is a princess in training than take the leap and create a room perfect for a little princess. From fancy dresses to castles, princess rooms can take on many different routes. Ruffles, satin, crowns and jewels can all make their appearance. This theme can be taken over the top or be simple and elegant.
Sassy and Chic
Does your girl have that adorable little attitude to go along with her beauty. Why not show off that sass in a room that accentuates her personality.
Subtle Simple Elegance
Calming, neutral colors with traditional decor. Beauty in the simplicity.
Dance Dance Dance
Ballet shoes, tutu, ruffles and light pink and your room is getting into the dance realm. Let your ballerina take center stage by framing some photos of her dancing. She will love looking at herself and it will personalize her room.
Bright and Playful
The bright colors and fun wall make this room a treat for your eyes. Have fun with your color scheme and mix it up a bit for a whimsical bright room.
Frogs, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails - Boy Bedroom Inspiration September 16 2014, 0 CommentsFrom sports to dinosaurs and everywhere in between, toddler boy bedrooms can go in a multitude of directions. Their interests can spark some of the best ideas and many times their toys can become their decor as well. You can go bold and over the top, or simple (i.e. easy to change when that phase runs out). Either way, boy bedrooms can be a lot of fun. Here is some inspiration for your boy's bedroom design.
Sports Galore:Focus on one team or a certain sport. You can go as detailed or as simple as you prefer. Either way will make a statement. Lockers, team decor, sports balls and memorabilia can add a lot to the design but can also overpower, so be cautious.
Take me to Space:
What kid doesn't love space? The planets, stars and asteroids are very enticing to a young boy. Bright colors, fun and engaging; a space bedroom is perfect for that boy who wants to blast off.
On the Road:
From firetrucks to monster trucks, boys love things that travel. Stick to one type of car, truck or plane. Or mix them and have a room full of transportation.
Something about building with Legos, sets a boy free. If your boy is into Legos, why not take it to the next level with a Lego room. Bright colors and a fun atmosphere will inspire your little one. Be sure to have an area for building with the blocks as well to complete the room.
The roaring. The growling. The claws. Dinosaurs bring out the boy in all of us. The beauty of dinosaurs is you can design it in a more muted tone or create a bright, playful room. Dinosaur rooms are a great example of using their toys for the decor on tables and shelves. Just make sure they still have a place to organize the others or it will look too crowded and messy.
There are many other options for your boys room. Use your imagination and follow their interests and you will create a great room that's playful and fun while functional.
