Werner Straube

As the only space they can truly call their own, a child’s bedroom should allow them to escape and feel inspired. Designing a children’s bedroom without ever becoming too youthful or grown up is a challenge. The most brilliant bedrooms embody the whim of childish wonder with the discipline and style of a designer – or a design-loving parent.

The key is to unleash creativity in your child’s bedroom while making sure everything feels organized. Don’t be afraid to show off your colorful side by using bold hues to cover the walls and vibrant fabric patterns on curtains, cushions, bedding and more. Treat your child’s drawings like the masterpieces they are and frame them on walls for everyone to see. And most importantly, make sure there’s enough storage space to hide all those Legos and dolls when playtime is over.
