We are a big fan of bedrooms that combine modern aesthetics with the classic rustic style to create flowing fusion between the two. Shaping a kids’ bedroom that is both refined and rustic is a lot easier than you think and it gives you a room that grows along with the needs and choices of your child.
DIY diva AngieintheThickofIt took some plywood and old dressers and turned them into this pretty and practical daybed for her kids. By making it taller than most typical bed frames she was able to incorporate ample cabbies and drawers as well.
Think of rustic style and the first thing that comes to mind are large logs and rough wooden surfaces that define the walls and the ceiling. While such a look is not natural for most modern homes you can give your kids’ bedroom a special makeover by adding a few beams to define the ceiling and add warmth to the room.
On the more affordable end of the spectrum IKEA packs a solid amount of functionality into its HEMNES daybed. At just $299 the multi-purpose workhorse boast three roomy drawers where you can stash pillows and blankets when you’re not using it as a bed.
Gray is perfect in this regard as it lets your red accessories bedding or furniture shine through beautifully. Since red is such a powerful color this approach offers the ideal solution for those who want to use the color while keeping a look.
Those of us living in small spaces have trouble finding room for even the smallest of things like jewelry. That’s why the Girl on the Go’s DIY vertical jewelry holder which takes advantage of the hidden space behind the Stave mirror makes so much sense.
Glossy velvety reds work well in opulent bedrooms with a Hollywood Regency or chic glam style. With Valentine’s Day a month away this will also add a touch of romance to the bedroom just in time!
With hundreds of stores across the globe IKEA has made a name for itself as a one-stop shop for affordable home furnishings. The downside to this however is that you can end up with exactly the same beds tables sofas and chairs as thousands of other people around the world.
