It's a nice room but when I see chapter books, football stuff, and an adult-sized desk with a stool where the kid's legs dangle in order for him to reach the desk surface, I do not think, "hey, great space for a three year old!" They make desks with legs that change out to allow for use from toddlers to teens. I guarantee the little boy is going to fall off that stool one day. The writer says the boy uses the space for trains, cars, lego creations... just wondering where his toys are, where the three-year-old is in this room (except in his toddler bed, which is adorable). My twelve year old son still enjoys his bright, colorful room full of art creations, souvenirs, books, legos, and random things that are meaningful to him. I hope this child's room becomes fully his as he grows-- complete with of all the fun, messy, colorful things he creates and builds and collects. Yeah, we all secretly throw away our kids' junk from time to time, but this room is ten years too early for him and says "adult designed, don't touch the vintage toys, kid!" The ceiling is great, the kid is super cute, the blackboard wall is fun- but the room is for the parent right now (or the photographer), not the kid.

looks stylish but not kid-friendly enough. Children like to have little hideaways of their own, with comfy cushions . That's why tepees (inside and outside) for example are very popular with children. I would have taken advantage of the corner under the roof to build in a nook, either looking like a little wooden cabin or closed by a curtain, with a nice reading light and plenty of cushions inside. Right now that space at the back of the bed looks useless, and I'm sure the little guy here would like it much better than the empty black wall.

Here just a few options that could inspire those having a bedroom in an attic :

Cute, but a toddler bed is not a good investment and that desk is useless for future homework, etc. The stool is all wrong - kids need a chair with a back that fits them.
