Creating a Multifunctional Room

Quite often, rooms in our homes have to perform double (or triple) duty. Guest bedrooms are also offices. Living rooms transform into playrooms. Kitchens are study spaces for homework hour. In these rooms, versatility is key. So how do you design a space that can allow you and your family to perform these tasks comfortably and functionally?

We recently had someone who needed help designing a nursery/office/guest room. Here are some tips and an inspiration board we came up with for creating a multifunctional room.

Use furniture that has multiple uses. Pull-out sofas are crucial for an office that doubles as a guest bedroom, especially when space is tight. Or instead of a nightstand that will rarely be used in a guest bedroom, use a small scale desk or vanity next to the bed.

Consider using a daybed. Not only are daybeds lovely, they are also practical as they can accommodate overnight guests or impromptu naps in the nursery. Plus, many daybeds have the option for an under-bed trundle to accommodate even more sleepover guests or storage!

Don’t skimp on storage. The last thing you will want to do after a long day in your home office is stare at those papers and projects. Try to find furniture that has lots of built-in storage, like a desk with a hutch or plenty of filing drawers. Bookshelves, armoires, and free-standing closets are all great options.

Try to stick with a neutral color palette. While your Aunt Sue may love your baby boy’s race car theme nursery, it doesn’t exactly make for the most soothing guest bedroom. When the hues in the room are soft and neutral, it allows a multifunctional room to be more comfortable and relaxing.

How To Create A Color Palette

Finding the perfect color palette for a baby’s nursery or child’s room can be a daunting task! How do you know what colors will work together? What if the colors look different in person than online? How do you make sure you don’t have too much of one color? Don’t be scared; selecting the perfect color palette is easier than you think! Here are some steps to consider as you start designing your next space:

Find an inspiration item. It can be a big part of the room like an amazing crib bedding set, or it can be a small accessory item such as a darling vintage art print scored at a flea market. Having one item to pull colors from is the perfect starting point.

Slide1

Choose at least three different colors for the room. This “layering” of colors will add visual interest and depth to the space.

Slide2

When in doubt, refer to the color wheel! Use both complementary colors (colors that are across from each other on the color wheel) and analogous colors (colors that are next to each other on the color wheel). Not sure what goes with that aqua duvet cover? Try accenting it with orange or navy!

Slide3

Always attempt to obtain a sample of something you are thinking about ordering. It is a lot easier to avoid color faux pas when you have the fabric swatches and finish samples together in front of you. This will also help save you the hassle of returning items.

Slide4

Make a mini inspiration board! There is a reason why professional interior designers create these boards for their clients. It is so much easier to ensure the room colors are balanced when you have images of all of the items together in one place.

Hopefully these tips make the start of creating your dream nursery or child’s room more fun and less stressful. We would love to hear if you have any secrets of your own!

Create A Designer Room (Without the Designer)!

It’s no secret that I love to decorate children’s rooms, and I am always in awe of the creative work by so many talented interior designers who specialize in designing children’s spaces.  What a treat it is to devote so much time and energy into such a fun and rewarding profession!

But, I am the first to admit that many moms and dads don’t have easy access to professional design services, and that they might not have the time to devote to endless hours researching innovative ideas and learning about the latest trends.

My goal today is to teach you 5 easy tips for getting the look of a professionally styled designer room with relative ease, and a manageable expense.

1. Create a focal wall.  

Did you ever notice that most fabulous rooms have a really cool focal wall?  This is where you can make a statement so that the room will stand out from the ordinary.  For your focal wall you can choose to simply paint it using an accent color, or you can have fun with stencils, wallpaper or decals for a bolder look.  Placing your crib or bed on this wall will give it the dramatic backdrop you are looking for, and make a lasting impression.

2. Use unexpected color combinations.  

One thing designers are really good at is using color to its fullest potential to create a look that is memorable and eye catching.  By pairing a safe color, like pink, with an unexpected color, like orange, or good old red with a punchy aqua, your room will take on a fresh and adventurous feel.  Experimenting with color is the perfect way to have fun with your room.  You can do this with paint and decorative accents like throw pillows, picture frames or rugs.  If your experiment doesn’t work, don’t get discouraged, because you can always swap out the paint or smaller accents without great expense.

3. Make it Personal.  

An exclusive and tailored design created by a designer often includes custom elements, like a monogrammed rug, headboard, or bedding.  One of my favorite ways to create a custom look is by adding a monogram to the wall using oversized wooden letters.  Painting a simple “frame” on the wall around your custom wall monogram creates a stunning effect.  For a less expensive alternative, with the same impact, you might opt for a monogram decal instead.

4. If you don’t have it, paint it.  

In an ideal world, we would all have gorgeous, custom molding on our walls, in every room in our house, right?  Well, if you don’t, I’m here to tell you that you can still get that “look” — with paint.  That’s right, with the assistance of some painters tape, a laser level and a gallon of paint you can create your own windowpane molding, bead board, chair rail, paneling and so on.  Choose a high gloss paint for your faux trim, and a contrasting color to the wall color, so that it will pop. This example from Project Nursery shows how painting the trim a contrasting color is both unexpected and dramatic.

5. Frame it x 10!  

Who doesn’t love a wall of frames?  Whenever I am flipping through the latest shelter magazines, or reading design blogs, I notice that a wall of frames is loved by designers and clients alike.  Nothing adds more of a one-of-a-kind look to a room like a wall of fun mismatched frames in varying shapes, sizes and even colors.  I love that it is impossible to mess this look up.  Just have fun with it and it will look fabulous.  Mix your picture frames with your favorite artwork for an eclectic look.  You may opt for higher end, hand finished frames, or you can also pick some up at your local flea market.  Fill them with your favorite family photos, and voila, your room is done.

Happy Decorating!
