For a child, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. It is a place to do schoolwork, listen to music, play games, sprawl on the floor, rough-house, read, build models, daydream, visit with friends, and keep innumerable
possessions. You’ll need to plan carefully to create a room that serves all those functions, yet is comfortable and inviting—and has enough staying power to require only minimal redecorating every few years. Have kids feel involved in the design process by letting them help with selections for the room. Include children’s interests and ask for their opinions as you create a
decorating scheme. Children’s interests change often, so use accessories that can be easily replaced when interest wanes. What you want is a room that both meets your needs and pleases your child.

I love this room and I love how there is space for storage under the children's beds, and it isn't messy or that noticeable. I have been looking into bedroom storage chicago for some help with that. I also love the idea of fitting the kids beds in a windowsill. How did you find mattresses the right size?

I believe it is Serena and Lily's own brand of pink called "Punch". Check out their samples.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Design 2011: Trends to Build On
And here's to the color of the year! Honeysuckle. I'm curious to see how it will be introduced into interiors this upcoming year.
Lily Gahagan added this to Tween-Age Daydream
The arched alcoves for these beds create a bit of privacy in a shared room — good for those angsty years.
In a bedroom without nightstands, wall sconces can become a necessary substitute for table lamps. Positioned about 30-36 inches above the bed, these wall sconces make terrific lights for reading.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Cozy Up in a Built-In Bed Cubby
Trying to figure out how to maximize space in a room that will be shared? Bunk beds are always an option for making the most of space in a shared room, but for a more sophisticated look, go for bed cubbies. Despite the fact that they’re in the same space, these room-sharers will appreciate the sense of privacy they receive when in their individual nooks.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Unearth Your Attic
AFTER: "An attic design is always an exercise in space maximization," Soorikian says. "I had to really play with the plan and section to make sure we were getting the most out of the space at hand. Every nook and cranny is used."
Laura Fenton added this to Attic Bedrooms Turn a Corner
Atlanta's Soorikian Architecture working with Dovetail Craftsmen cleverly renovated this children's bedroom in an attic. A bed with built-in storage drawers is neatly tucked under each eave.Browse thousands of bedroom photosMore:Find More Living Space in the Basement and AtticUnearth Your AtticGreat Space Saver: Bedroom Storage You Can Sleep On
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Share Tactics: Great Ideas for Shared Kids' Rooms
The fact that children inhabit the same bedroom does not mean that they love the same colors. A great way to make the shared space personal to each child is to let them pick the colors for the walls nearest their bed, and to pick the color of their bedding. For instance, my twin grandchildren like different colors: Alyssa always picks pink, and Alexis always picks purple — even if what they are choosing is otherwise identical. Color is a great way to let each child dictate the look of his or her personal space.
