kids room | a shared space


This room was designed around the amazing OEUF PERCH bunk bed (in birch)! I have seen a few room designs with this bunk and I was in love from the moment I saw it! Oeuf has this amazing way of their modern furniture designs adapting into so many styles and spaces. I look forward to the many moments the boys will share on this bunk bed. Our goal was to make it warm and welcoming yet reflect both their personalities.

Since the boys are old enough to know what they want in a room, I asked them about almost everything we did in the space so that it felt like their own. The biggest request was a bunk bed, they had been sharing a full size bed before and there was just too much physical space being invaded. The second request was that they both wanted a chalkboard wall. I love that they can color on the walls and the places their imaginations go is just exciting to see it in art form. Let me say - the though the chalkboard wall can be extremely messy, it is also worth it! The boys LOVE it! I was also nervous that the black wall would make the room too monochromatic so we found other ways to bring color into the room.

The boys really wanted an art space, originally they asked for a desk but after we found that there was a greater need for floor space, so instead we created an art wall with the paper mural and brought in the Stokke Tripp Trapp here for them to sit on while they color and draw on the walls! I love the Stokke Tripp Trapp for the older boys because it is so easy for them to move around on it, it also washes really well for when the chalk transfers. I love the idea of bringing seating into the room!


We do still need to replace the\ light fixture and we are on the hunt for hardware we love, but for now the boys are enjoying their new shared space!

What we did: Painted the woodwork white with Benjamin Moore's Dove White (we used oil based paint). Painted the walls Polo Mallet by Ralph Lauren. Chalkboard paint is also by Benjamin Moore. The closets and door felt a little too plain so we painted the door half mint and I am so happy with the pop of color, plus it ties in the bedding!

We scraped off the popcorn ceilings -- they were dingy and gray and we wanted them bright and clean. Popcorn ceilings can also harbor a lot of dust and aggravate allergies, since Rowan is more sensitive to allergies we decided this would benefit him greatly!
