Scandinavian Inspired Children's Bedrooms
Children’s Bedroom Renovaton by Heju
French architectural studio, Heju, adheres to Nordic and Japanese sensibilities and claims to push the boundaries of architecture and design. This is evident in their renovation for clients Anne and Hubert, a playful response to a limited space for a growing family.
Loft Apartment by Ruetemple
According to architects Ruetemple, ‘our task was to turn an uninhabitable attic into a comfortable and bright loft. Requirements of the customer - a feeling of light and space, functional furniture, attractive playrooms, ample storage space. The result: the loft apartment with maximum functionality and comfort, minimum décor.’ Recently we also explored the space-saving feature of our Dream Cloud Loft Bed as inspired by loft loving. Take a peek here.
Home with wooden furnishings
This apartment listed by Stockholm-based relators Per Jansson exudes calm through use of organic materials, open space and natural light. In the children’s bedroom, customised woodwork forms a minimalist children’s bed with ample storage akin to our Singolo Single Bed and Trundle Drawer. Considered use of storage keeps floor space clear and free for play.

Fence House by Mode:lina Architekci
Constructed in Borówiec, Poland by Mode:lina Architekci, Fence House is essentially divided into two. The first floor provides serene space for adults, whilst the upper level allows for the children to ‘go crazy in their “own house”’.
Roomblush SS16 Collection styled by April & May
Soft greys, blonde wood and muted sage form the palette for this minimalistic campaign styled by April & May for Belgian wallpaper company Roomblush. This is consistent with Jacinda Malloy's advice in our journal article, Calm Spaces for Kids, 'Paint your walls. Muted colours don't have to be boring. Soft lavender, sage, milky greys and dusty blues are all perfect shades to create a peaceful kids room.'
