Cool and Cute Children’s Rooms

Sep 24, 2013

by House of Earnest handmade and vintage goods

I love thoughtfully decorated children’s rooms — and that doesn’t necessarily mean styled to the nines or recreating whatever the Jones’ have done to their baby room! A well-conceived kid’s room is a comfortable, functional space that reflects your family’s style.

If your girl loves princesses, by all means, make her room a princess haven (but that doesn’t have to mean all things mass-produced). A well-edited collection of feminine items can provide European flair and princess allure, which will transition well into the early teen years, too.

Similarly, an über-masculine room doesn’t have to mean sports and primary colors for your little man. Outdoor influences and rustic touches bring a bit of grown-up, manly charm to a little one’s space. A husband or brother may just wish this was the kind of room they’d grown up in.

Rooms don’t have to be gender specific, either. Maybe you don’t know what you’re having, or maybe you just want the space not to scream boy or girl. Between modern design and neutral touches, a chic, beautiful room is close at hand!

And lastly, you might be waiting until birth to learn the baby’s gender, but putting together a beautiful room doesn’t have to wait. Soft details, classic furniture, and neutral decor certainly aren’t boring when it comes to these amazing finds.

    I totally agree with Erin. You don't need to know if you're having a boy or girl and then choose between blue and pink. There are lots of great ways to decorate, and gender is really irrelevant to that. Besides, as a kid's personality develops and changes, you'll be able to figure out what they want, and not have to rely on gender stereotypes.

    I could live in one of these rooms. Timeless décor that could be used into early teen years.
