“My husband built the letter storage blocks- we build custom pieces for our event business all the time, so it was our special touch on the room.” – Carrie

The Young America Kudos Crib in a vibrant finish is a great center point for this colorful space. It’s accented by the bright red of the rug and the yellow of the Doodlefish Cottage Glider and Recliner. For lighting, Carrie chose the Raindrops Pendant in Aqua by Oilo.

I love the creative use of chevron on the wall, tied together with the crib bedding fabric, curtains and throw pillow. The oversized crayons are actually giant banks! Based on the photos above the crib, I’m guessing Mom & Dad are welcoming a future baseball fan into the world. 😉

Tell us, what do you think of this colorful boy’s nursery! What’s your favorite part about the space?

Kid's Room Design Trends for 2012!

In her latest article for SheKnows.com, Rosenberry Rooms’ owner, Susie Fougerousse comments on the trends in design for children’s spaces this year. One of Susie’s favorite things about designing kids’ rooms is that there are no rules or limitations when it comes to designing a space for a child, you can really just have fun. She also explains that although there are always hot colors and popular patterns, most children’s themes never really go out of style, they sometimes simply need a refresher!

With the help of some other creative minds like Aaron Christensen of Embellishments Kids, Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco of Little Crown Interiors and Katy Mimari of Caden Lane, you will find a few fresh takes on these classic motifs. Also, make sure to check out the full article (plus photo inspiration) over on SheKnows.com!

Circus Charm

“The darling of the Pinterest crowd birthday themes- Circus, will edge its way off the cake table and into the kiddies rooms. The big top combination of eclectic patterns, animal motifs, vintage typography and the classic stripe will charm the little ones. The market’s dazzling array of iron cribs and traditional wooden crib styles will lend nicely to this fun and dynamic theme. Honey toned yellows, teal blues, grayed greens and faded reds are the incoming colors of the circus fans. But don’t be surprised if you see circus themes in soft pastels and unexpected color ways. Sorry clowns, you’re still too scary to be chic again. Maybe next year.” – Aaron Christensen

Science Style

“We’ve seen old school items like maps and globes play heavily into children’s decor, now it’s time to broaden the mind through the other sciences. The addition of biology, ecology, entomology and zoology will compliment the geology trend and bring brains, as well as beauty, to kids room design. Plants, bugs, molecules, hexagons and all things scientific are garnering interest. Brilliant minded rooms will call out for all the colors of the rainbow, in muted tones.” – Aaron Christensen

Forest Flair

“Moms, Dads and designers alike will applaud the trending of Mother Nature’s graphic palette going beyond the tree silhouette and birds, birds and more birds (yes, that includes owls). Forest friends like the fox, bear and raccoon are traveling into the scene and they’re bringing all kinds of patterns with them. You’ll see more wood grain, colorful florals, botanicals and oversized retro variations of plaid mixing in with the funky geometrics we see now. Decor items with a simple, made at summer camp feeling to them will also capture our hearts.” – Aaron Christensen

Chevron Chic

Chevron has definitely made a name for itself in the design world this year. This retro zigzag design has been updated with current colors and is showing up everywhere in children’s rooms from the floors to the walls. “The mod print brings a bold statement on rugs, curtains and bedding and is an easy way to add a pop of color to any room design,” according to bedding designer Katy Mimari of Caden Lane.

Fun Fonts

The personalize-it craze is another trend in kids’ room design that is here to stay. Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco, the design team that makes up Little Crown Interiors, a full-service interior design firm, say that finding new and fresh ways to display a child’s name is one of the year’s biggest trends. Update this idea by trying new things like an oversized wall monogram as the focal point of the room or using the classic wooden wall letters but in fun, innovative fonts for a fresh take on a tried-and-true trend.

Looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store! Happy decorating!

Lila's Teal, Pink & Chevron Nursery!

Designer and creator of Caden Lane, Katy Mimari recently shared with us the pictures from her most recent nursery design! Who is the nursery for? Herself and her baby girl on the way! Naturally, Katy chose one of her own crib bedding sets for the room (from her newest Ikat Collection) and used this to build out her color palette. With bold and bright pink and beautiful tiffany blue, this fun and funky nursery exudes what Caden Lane is all about! Check out the images below and hear some helpful tips from Katy for designing something similar in your own home.

Where do you start when designing a room? Describe your design process.

Well – each time is different, but I’d say I pick a color palette and go with it! I started the design process of our new Ikat Collection before I found out I was expecting, but I always find myself designing the fabrics with a “potential” nursery in mind! So, when I found out I was expecting a baby girl… I was already half way through the design process! I think when decorating any nursery or child’s room, it should start with the textiles & bedding, and move from there. Think of it as your color wheel to accessorize. I love bright & colorful children’s rooms, they grow with the child so easily, and you’ve got the rest of the house to keep in the “neutral” color palette!

How did you decide on your color scheme?

I can’t get enough of pink and teal! And not the traditional light pink… bright, bold, & beautiful! The teal has two shades, which I used throughout the room, and I love the peachy chevron wall – pink would have been the obvious choice, but I think the peachy color is so much less expected and funky!

What is your favorite part about the room?

Okay, the chevron bedding, obviously right?  But… I will say, I’m LOVING the wall art! It was so inexpensive to make, and I’ve always loved inspirational quotes & sayings, and if I had to sum up 6 words of advice for my baby girl, “Dream Big, Sparkle More, and Shine Bright” would be perfect words of wisdom! The frames were inexpensive finds too – I ordered them online and painted them with the different colors to match. I then bought the glass from the dollar store, and printed the wall art on photopaper! I think all the wall art in total was less than $100! I also love that the entire room was designed with growth in mind. I imagine the frame collage wall over her big girl bed, and the hot pink dresser covered with pictures of her friends & favorite finds…. And I don’t have to worry about finding bedding to coordinate b/c the same fabrics as the crib bedding come in twin/full/queen too!

Do you have any advice for someone wanting to design a similar room?

Don’t be afraid of color! Two, three, even four colors can take a room from weak to WOW! I wanted the dark pink to be a strong accent color in the design, so I looked for accessories that featured the darker pink. When I found that AMAZING scalloped dresser from Newport Cottages, I knew that was KEY in tying in the dark pink on the bumpers… it matches perfectly! Oh – one more great DIY tip! I hot glued the rosette trim I found at a local craft store to solid white curtain panels… I love how it frames the windows, and it was a cheap alternative to custom curtains!
