Packed with personality and plenty of style, read on for 12 locally designed kids’ rooms that give the master bedroom a run for its money.
In this room Nicole Hogarty Designs dreamed up for two aviation-adoring boys, Pauline Curtiss of Patina painted a graphic plane on the ceiling.
For the Beacon Hill bedroom of a young girl whose favorite color is pink, Lindsay Vieira of Renovation Planning & Interiors embraced a rosy palette and added a birdcage light fixture.
In her son’s serene and sophisticated nursery, designer Lindsey Hanson incorporated a jungle-themed wallcovering, curtains with pom-pom detailing, and vintage art. With help from her husband Eric, a lead carpenter for Blackdog Builders, Hanson also created closets with barn doors.
For a young boy’s room in Melrose, Lynnfield-based design firm Gray Oak Studio created a focal point using an ocean-inspired wallcovering from A-Street Prints. The room also features a custom gallery wall with framed art and 3-D décor.
LeBlanc Design employed bright punches of color in this otherwise ivory room, as well as a sleepover-ready trundle bed for a five-year-old in Weston.
Maven Design Group devised this space for a 10-year-old boy in a single-family beach house in Harwichport. The room features Cole & Son “Melville” wallpaper, vintage twin four-poster beds and side tables, as well as a rug from Landry & Arcari.
For a Brookline family with a baby girl on the way, Lawless Design brought to life a neutral room with a fun surprise: a pop of green on the ceiling.
In a renovated cottage on the Cape, Jill Neubauer Architects and builders at McLaughlin & Son added a bunk room for the family’s boys. The top bunks feature custom, upcycled sails repurposed as railings.
Kelly McGuill’s client, an eight-year-old boy in Medfield, originally requested a loft bed, but the size and placement of the room’s existing windows weren’t conducive to that design. Instead, with help from Lallier Finish, McGuill’s team created a platform for a standard bed, complete with storage.
In the South End, the Boston-based team at Twelve Chairs designed a nursery for a long-term client’s first baby. The space features an elevated neutral color scheme, custom window treatments by Makkas Drapery, and a cozy daybed.
A 13-year-old in Weston asked Liz Caan & Co. for a room packed with pizzazz, as well as her favorite hues: blue and purple. The team obliged, and also added touches of gold for a hint of grown-up flair.
For her son’s bedroom, designer Erin Gates drew inspiration from his jubilant personality and chose an equally cheerful Hinson vinyl-grasscloth wallcovering to match.
