TRENDS IN KIDS’ ROOM DESIGN

Kids’ rooms continue to trend toward higher-end, more versatile designs that are capable of growing alongside the child. We spoke with interior designer Traci Zeller who offered her expertise on the modern day kids’ room.

FUNCTION

Kids’ bedrooms are often, by necessity, multi-purpose spaces. Of course, the primary purpose of a child’s bedroom is a place to sleep, but that bedroom may also function as a child’s home office, library, play room and perhaps even media center. For that reason, flexible storage solutions are key for kids’ rooms. A desk can easily double as a bedside table or a vanity.

ADAPTABILITY

Kids are growing up faster and faster these days. Parents and kids are less interested in age-specific, theme-y rooms, and more interested in designs that can grow and evolve as the child does. It makes so much more sense to invest in high quality furniture, for example, that is appropriate from the toddler to the teenage years, rather than spend money on flimsy pieces that will barely survive elementary school. Another way is to utilize patterned fabrics that can adapt to a child’s changing preference of color or character or creature.

COLOR

While staple palettes (pinks for girls and beiges for boys) continue to be a consistent request, light and white walls have become increasingly popular within kids rooms, as a flexible backdrop for the ever-changing preferences of a child.

FLOORING

Carpet remains a popular choice for kids’ rooms, due to its warm, comfortable and safe nature. For wall-to-wall carpeting, styles that mimic the look of natural fibers and stone will be gaining popularity in 2017 – a trend that’s reflective of increasingly popularity of incorporating organic and natural materials into design.

Diamond Sun by Bigelow offers the look of natural fibers, with the softness and stain-resistance of one of America’s top performing carpet brands. Our favorite colors for kids rooms: Sandcastle – a warm, jute-like beige, and Icebreaker – cooler taupe tone (pictured above, 2nd and 3rd swatch from top). Coastal Cruiser by Tigressa H2O showcases beautiful color striations that mimic the looks of natural materials like wood and stone, in a durable waterproof product fit for kids. Our top color choices: Nickel Dust – a cool slate color with hints of rose, and Cobweb – a warm wood-like tone (pictured above, 1st and 4th swatch from the top).

TRENDS IN WINDOW TREATMENTS

Windows are often a key design element within a room, acting as an anchor around which furniture is placed and offering priceless natural light. So, if you’re someone who has previously put little thought into your window treatments, it’s time to reconsider your tactics. But first, hear from Kim Kiner, VP of Material and Textile Design at Hunter Douglas, in our exclusive Q&A to find out what’s trending in the world of window treatments.

ARE THERE ANY NEW MATERIALS BEING USED IN WINDOW TREATMENTS THIS YEAR?

The most exciting new materials for window fashions are new textile directions that have even richer textures and innovative surface finishes with a glint of subdued sheen.

WHICH COLOR WILL RISE ABOVE ALL OTHERS IN 2017?

One of the most important color directions that we think will be important in interiors and at the window, is soft and sophisticated taupish gray. This is an evolution of the popularity of gray that is now transitioning to the influence of gray across all colors, but most importantly brown.

WHAT HIGH TECH TOUCHES WILL CONSUMERS NOT BE ABLE TO RESIST?

Technology has not only blended onto our lives but also into our homes and window treatments. The introduction of Hunter Douglas PowerView® has been enormously successful as consumers realize the convenience and easy operation of battery operated motorized window treatments that also provide the opportunity to customize the operation of their window treatments and increase the energy efficiency and security of their homes.

ARE THERE ANY NEW STYLES EMERGING OR EXISTING STYLES THAT WILL BE GAINING GROUND?
The styles that we feel are most important for homes today are the following.

Warm Minimalism. This trend has been created out of the desire seek a reduced way of living that is soft and comfortable, exudes calm and serenity, but has impeccable design and an organic natural warmth.

Mindful Living. There is a trend toward restoring comfort in our homes and balance in our lives. So this trend creates a softer living environment with a relaxed aesthetic and casual sophistication.

Everyday Luxury. There is a monumental shift in the definition of luxury that elevates the everyday with exceptional quality, unparalleled products and high-end design.

SPRING REFRESH CHECKLIST

Spring is well underway, which means it’s time to rid your home of those winter layers and refresh. The following Spring Refresh Checklist has simple ideas for getting your home springtime ready.

✓ Lighter and Brighter

Add springtime hues to your home. A simple swap out of pillows, poufs or paintings is a simple way to incorporate seasonally-appropriate color within a space. Feel like making a bigger impact? Paint a room with a fresh new color, like Pantone’s color of the year – Greenery.

✓ Shed Layers

Be on the lookout for those warmer layers that have built up over the winter. We’re talking those cozy throws, pillows and fauxs that kept your warm during the winter. Be sure to clean everything before packing them away for the season, so they’re fresh and ready come next year. For extra fluffy items, vacuum bags can help you save on storage space.

✓ Stain Patrol

More time indoors could mean more messes and stains. Take a look around for stains on flooring and upholstery that you may have missed during the winter months. Or maybe even some holiday stains you haven’t gotten around to. Make a list of items that need to be cleaned and check them off a few at a time.

For pesky carpet stains, check out the Stain First Aid App for easy instructions on over 50 of the most common household stains.

✓ Closet Purge

Whether it’s your closet or your home’s mudroom, it’s time to let go of winter clothing and accessories. Before packing everything away, take time to purge any items you didn’t wear or use over the winter season. Likewise, take a look at your spring and summer items to see if there’s anything you no longer need or will use. We promise, you’ll be delighted at the space you create for a few fresh new things!

✓ Treat Yourself

Get something for your home that you truly love. Whether it’s a piece of art that makes you happy or a new sofa that looks as good as it feels. Even one small addition to your room – if you truly love it – can fresh the whole space. Read. Set. Refresh! Spring is here, so kick off those cozy slippers and get ready to refresh your home.
