Room to Grow

From clothing to shoes, kids always seem to be growing into something new. Furniture is no exception. Make the transition from toddler bed to twin by furnishing your child’s space with pieces that offer adaptable features like trundle beds. Use color to keep the space playful by pulling inspiration from bedding or art to create a feature on the walls.

Homework & Hangouts

The road to self-discovery is long and winding, especially for teens and in-betweens. Their rooms are often retreats, havens for homework, and hangouts. Get the most out of this multipurpose space with furniture that can be reconfigured to accommodate the needs of your teen, like this Cleary Captain’s bed from Pottery Barn Teen. Play up unique room features with an accent wall – a rich hue like Naval can help to bring out the detail in a textured wall and transitions well as they get older.
