8 Children’s Bedrooms Designed to Delight

Provided to KLAFFS exclusively by New England Home

From bunkrooms to sweet sleeping quarters fit for a princess, these children’s bedrooms are designed to please young and old alike.

The unusual hexagonal shape of this cheerful bedroom allows for a super-girly, let’s-lounge-all-day window seat. A blanket of soft pale-pink carpet and plenty of plump pillows up the cozy factor in the daughter’s bedroom of a Fairfield County home designed by Ross & Chase Interiors.

When Lynne Scalo designed this Greenwich home for a family with four young children, four dogs, and four cats, she weighed the need for family-friendly living and the clients’ refined aesthetic. This balance is exemplified in the handsome boy’s room decorated in a sophisticated palette of camel, navy, and cream.

Rachel Reider aims to design kids’ rooms that feel age-appropriate, yet can grow along with the children. The sweet butterfly wallpaper by Jim Thompson in this young girl’s room will still feel fresh when she heads into the teenage years.

It isn’t often that the redecoration of childrens’ rooms ignites an entire home renovation, but this was just the case in a home Karen Bow designed for her longtime friend. This rustic-chic boy’s bedroom gets its sophistication from deep-red vinyl wallcovering and David Hicks geometric-patterned carpeting.

This lively bunkroom in a Litchfield County farmhouse is also the work of designer Karen Bow. It may be hard to get the teens out of this hip room designed for lounging!

Robin Henry’s mantra for designing the bedrooms of this funky weekend retreat in Sharon, Connecticut, was “mix it up and let color rule.” Blue-striped walls and mismatched bed linens show the genius of that design strategy.

A Pottery Barn Teen cupboard with cutouts, lavender drapery fabric from Duralee, and a colorful quilt give the room Kerri Rosenthal designed for her then eleven-year-old daughter a contemporary edge.

A family retreat in Maine is designed for creating life-long family memories. What could be more delightful—or memorable—than drifting off to sleep in a bunkroom designed to feel like a cabin? Designer Linda Banks gave each bed its own reading light and book cubby, while a built-in blackboard encourages games and creativity.
