Bring the outside in. Using and designing around natural elements sends a subliminal message to the brain to feel calm. The colors, sights, sounds, scents, and textures found in nature present the most perfect balance and are the greatest source of inspiration for all my schemes. One way to bring nature inside is to incorporate images of the outdoors into your childs bedroom. Especially when working with children, wall art should be photography over paintings. Photos help children learn how to observe details around them and they learn how to appreciate everything nature does for us as a whole. Photos can also double as lovely views when windows with lovely vistas are not available.
Your design must contain all the spaces and functions required for your general bedroom needs: a bed, a place to store and organize clothing, light sources (e.g. natural and artificial), and an entrance to the bedroom. The challenge is to consider and re-conceptualize these basic elements to rethink designs for new sleeping spaces, storage, organizing structures and systems for books, and other materials, access to outdoor spaces, a space to study, and a space to relax. Is this an active space, or a tranquil space?
