I love it when kids’ rooms look like, well… a room fit for a kid! This is a great example of a clean, organized, yet creative space for a little one to flourish.

Kara Rosenlund designed this room to be a cheerful, relaxed space perfect for a growing little boy. From the dramatic floor-to-ceiling chalkboard walls, to the sunny ceiling fan, to the “grass” rug on the floor, there’s no risk of mistaking this room for a serious grownup space. This is what Kara has to say about designing kids’ rooms:

I see so often people overlooking the need to make these memory making spaces for kids age appropriate. I still remember my first bedroom with my pastel pink walls and matching curtains, with glow in the dark stars on the ceiling. Real kid spaces for real kid dreaming.
