We all need a space of our ownand these eight kids, from newborns to young teens, have got it good.
When Fox Design Studio’s Ben Leavitt was given carte blanche for the redesign of this Port Coquitlam home, he decided to take a playful approach in the nursery—gold-leaf stripes on the walls, banana leaf print on the sofa. (Fun Fact: the room was designed for his newborn niece, Ella.) See more of this eclectic townhouse.
This whimsical playroom, designed by Joanna Vagelatos of The Cross Interior Design, is full of wonder thanks to a cozy teepee, sheepskin throws and Moooi Random light. Read more about this imaginative design.
With Cole and Son’s Woods paper on the walls, this nursery designed by Mango Design Co. feels both modern and fairy tale-like. See more of this century-old home.
Designer Denise Matheson asked Edmonton street artist Trevor “Kurly” Peters to paint the wall in this boys’ bedroom with graffiti—a bold move in the upscale Henderson Estates neighbourhood. See more of this modern renovation.
The bedrooms for architect Clinton Cuddington’s two kids are mirror images of each other. Though both have an upper loft area for reading and listening to music, son Eero was the only one to put in a special request for a giant Lego installation. See more of this Measured Architecture-designed home.
Designer Lynn Gentile created cozy retreat for 14-year-old Tamara: “We created this shelf for her to put all her fabulous finds; her desk is tucked behind a walnut panel and her bed is a bit of a cocoon, hidden on the other side.” See more of this Whistler cabin.
Taxidermy can be found throughout this home in the southern Alberta foothills—even in the under-the-stairs kids’ nook, where designer Elena Del Bucchia hung a felt big-horned sheep’s head. See more of this modern ranch.
As part of his first interior project, fashion designer Paul Hardy created an indoor camping experience—complete with tent, campfire and fabric marshmallows on sticks. See more of this dramatic home makeover.
