Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
Polka dots prevent this bright bedroom from seeming overly sterile. The simple accent wall print also helps to ensure the expansive walls do not overwhelm the simplicity of the interior design. Of the wooden elements, the rocking chair. Romantic typographical decals bring a touch of modernism to this classically inspired bedroom. Highly distressed wood on the side table, dresser, and headboard enhance the contemporary design with relatably chic appeal.
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.
