Tips for a Cool Kids’ Bedroom from Meriwether Design Group
• Make room: Ensure there is a large open area for play and be intentional about storage. Here, large pieces of furniture are placed against the wall with baskets assigned for toys.
• Stop the stain: Utilize stain-resistant fabrics like Sunbrella so you can wipe up messes. Add comfort with an area rug that can easily be replaced should Jack spill his grape juice.
• Capture color: Kids often gravitate toward bright hues. Stick with two or three vivid tones for maximum impact.
