What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Comfy hangout spots. “Comfortable seating in a child’s room creates a safe place to snuggle your small one and also encourages your school-age child to hang out with friends at home. Who doesn’t want that?” says designer Lori Ludwick of InDesign.Window seats, she says, are popular features in kid rooms. “It’s easy to see yourself reading books to your toddler and imagine your teenager tweeting from that same intimate space,” she says.
7. Layers of bright colors and touchy-feely texture stand out in this kids’ room. Trim outlines flocked wallpaper behind a patterned headboard, while colorful pillows sit on a thick turquoise window seat cushion. To really push the layers, interior designer Lori Ludwick added embellishments to a simple Ikea nightstand. She also custom made the feather-covered chandelier.
