I love Carters room that was featured in print issue four. I had no particular theme when I created this room. I just wanted to make sure it was fun, bright and quirky. I started with the color-neutral batman decals before adding bold hues and statements into the room to play off one another. Wall-to-wall neutrals are quickly becoming a thing of the past, so don’t be afraid to play with color! I used two different types of sheets for this little one’s bed (one fitted sheet for each mattress stacked atop the other) which provides a fun and unexpected splash of color. Taking that a step further, I layered the rugs, adding depth and texture to the room.
Don’t forget to create a cozy little nook where your child can draw, write down his or her thoughts, or keep schoolwork organized! For this room, I used clothespins I found at Crate and Barrel to make updating the display easy for little fingers. I also purchased sheet metal to cover the closet doors, generating a fun, magnetic board where more art can be displayed or magnetic cities can be built (the possibilities are only limited by your munchkin’s imagination!). Closet doors in a bedroom are pretty much an unavoidable eyesore that generally take up a large chunk of the space without generating interest, so we sought to breathe some fun into this long-overlooked bedroom staple by creating a colorful corner.
