Park Avenue Boys' Room

The challenge presented for this project was to transform a boys’ bedroom in an East Side townhouse into a no-holds-barred dream space. Perianth said goodbye to the racecar beds that once filled the room, and hello to a rock-climbing wall, a punching bag, a mini basketball court, and more. The circular cutouts are backed in Velcro and filled with removable ping-pong balls as part of the loft frames. Photo: Zoe Chan

The room is also designed to contain clutter: Perianth created the loft spaces to include lots of storage for books, trophies and, of course, action figures. There is even built-in storage below the windows and beneath the beds.

The parents are thrilled that on rainy days, their sons now have multiple activities to keep them occupied without leaving their room.

Dear Joanne, We used stained quarter-sawn oak. The design was custom-made for this room. Because of the high-demand for these beds/lofts, I am making them for sale. If you would like to contact me at, I would be happy to see how I can assist you for your boys' room. Very best, Hilary

Please can you tell me how you did the floor. It's amazing!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Perianth Interior Design
Dear Rachel, Thank you for your comments, and I am glad you like the floor. We researched different floor markings and then gave a diagram to the contractor. He actually painted the lines on the floor with the orange chalk-board paint. If you Google images of "basketball floor markings", you can select the design you want. I recommend asking a general contractor to paint it for you. I hope this is helpful and my apologies for the long delay in the response. Very best, Hilary

Can you tell me where I could find the instructions - To build the loft

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This bedroom encourages foul-shot practice.
This Park Avenue kids' bedroom includes loads of built-in storage space for books, trophies and toys. It also has a rock-climbing wall, a punching bag and a mini basketball court. If the room doesn't cultivate a little Olympian in the making, then at the very least, the boys living in the space are bound to be more active and have fun.
