Two playful looks we love for the perfect kids' room makeover.
For this nursery in a townhouse in Port Coquitlam, B.C., designer Ben Leavitt of Fox Design Studios decided to give baby Ella—who also happens to be his niece—a shimmering view for when she wakes up from nap time. The gold-leaf stripes took 12 hours to apply by hand, though the designer already had his challenges with this space: the round Restoration Hardware crib had to be cut in half and then refastened once inside the room because of the condo’s narrow staircase. (Want to see more from this playful space? Check out the home photo gallery here!)
Kids’ rooms should encourage imagination, and this one, designed by Joanna Vagelatos of The Cross Interior Design, is all about creative play. From the teepee with its cozy sheepskin interior and Designers Guild throw pillows to the kids’ books that line the wall (a simple way to also bring colour into the space), this is a comfy spot for both parents and kids to spend an afternoon.
