Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
Go for bold. As the saying goes. This attic bedroom shows off its sloping walls with pride and is consequently a bright, energetic space. A minimalist bed and desk area fit in neatly and make this teenagers room a fun retreat. Wow with white. All white is a fail-safe space enhancer, but there are so many ways to do it. Here soft neutrals add just the right amount of warmth, while the minimal wall decorations draw the eye to the window and the view beyond. The neat built-in wall unit keeps clutter tucked out of sight behind slick drawer fronts, creating a serene mood.
Arrange furniture wisely. To help parents remember the elements needed for a healthy and well-balanced bedroom, I developed the acronym SPEL—Sleep, Play, Enjoy, Learn. Every room should be able to provide all these functions. In her system, each activity is given its own distinct zone but the rooms primary functions of relaxation and sleeping are given the most attention. Proper placement of beds, storage, toys, desk, etc. varies from room to room and with the childs age, but one thing is certain, the positioning of these stations and the colors, finishes, lighting, and scents will make a big difference in how the room is perceived and used.
