Inspiring Spaces

We kicked off 2010 with 5 eclectic and/or beautifully creative kid spaces including a space where the kid was the client AND the co-designer, a handsome room with a retro school room vibe, and a nursery outfitted entirely with pretty, secondhand items.

1. E's Room: "Just about every design decision in the room was made by 6-year-old E or as a mother/son team. Kim, writes, "… my boy … loves dark, deep, saturated color. The wall color, which I love, was a compromise. He wanted purple, I told him lavender. He settled for blue, I let him choose the shade."

2. My Room — Brewer: "The inspiration for the room is ART SCHOOL! My son just started art-infused pre-k and he LOVES it! His days are full of finger painting, water colors, glueing and cutting and his walls show it!"

3. Scarlett's Sensational Secondhand Space: "Most third (or fourth or fifth...) children are used to hand-me-downs from the very start, but when your mom pours her heart into making each thrifted, passed down or repurposed item beautiful and special for you there's nothing to complain about."

4. More Grey in the Nursery, This Time Grey + Red: "It's a great example of how grey doesn't necessarily have to look drab or dull."

5. Building Plans for StudioMama's Kids' House: "Although we can't imagine having a space large enough to encompass this kids' sleep/play house we were nonetheless enthralled with it last year. We were checking up on its creator, StudioMama, and found out that she now sells building plans for it — neat!"
