Happy first day of 2014!!!
One of my readers noticed that I don’t feature enough bedroom designs on the blog which, in fact, is true. For some reason, I am always drawn to living rooms and especially dining rooms perhaps because these are the most used areas in my apartment. But that’s kind of selfish of me, right? And so for this year, I promise to post more inspiration photos not just for the bedroom but also for the other spaces at home.
I’m going to start with these colorful bedrooms for older kids and teenagers. They’re vibrant, fun and exciting – exactly how we want this year to be :)

Frequently the wood are pink –
Frequently are brown.
Frequently the hills undress
Behind my native town.

Has it really been almost three months since I did a design post on bedrooms for children? My, how time flies! So here’s another set of inspiration photos for those planning to remodel their kids’ rooms. I chose the nautical theme because it is gender-neutral, fun and classic. Hope you like it!
One reader asked me to share some design ideas for a kid’s bedroom. Let’s start with a color scheme (and let’s just say that this would be the first of many). In the past, blue with orange was an odd, almost unlikely choice for a little boy’s bedroom. Today, there is a growing appreciation for the fun contrast that this color combo brings. Blue and orange are best mixed with natural colors such as brown, beige and light gray. By the way, when I said “blue”, I meant “pale blue”. What can I say? Bright interiors are hard to resist.
