Chic Kid Spaces
Our continued series on Inspired Kid spaces. Part One: here
A great kid space should be simple (to clean and maneuver around), bright -especially with natural light and inviting.
You want the child to actually use their stuff and not yours!
It may seem like a waste of money to buy furniture that will eventually be grown out of, but benefits of kid’s furniture are well worth the investment. First off, you child wont be gluing/painting/snacking and being generally gross, on your furniture. Secondly, having a space of one’s own fosters independence and healthy self esteem. It’s easy to break the bank on kid’s furniture, but with a little creativity and thinking long haul- with either ‘grow with me’ selections or timeless accessories, the investment doesn’t have to be thrown away money.
Beyond The Box’s Play on a Playroom
A calming, but bright color palette for the walls. Child height mounted acrylic book shelves on a blue bauble accent wall, make the acrylic shelves virtually disappear. Ever-chic Eames hooks (use these for dress-up clothes hanging instead of those space sucking dress up wardrobes), a washable/removable covered beanbag chair for lounging, and a bright bright rug and whimsical accessories pull it all together.
