It probably comes as no surprise that I have quite a few projects left on my to-do list. Though my to-do list is more of a I-want-to list and my husband’s list is significantly shorter. There is one project we could agree on, however. Kristian needs a new room, or more accurately a new bed.

Then it happened, while browsing Serena & Lily I found it. THE BED. It was retro, stylish, yet playful and everything I was looking for. I’ve been eyeing Jenny Lind style beds for awhile but hadn’t found the right one. They were either too tall or too spindly. (Due to space, we’re crossing a window and I’d like to obstruct the view as little as possible.) This. This is the right bed. We ordered it in twin. Kristian is going to love it for years, according to me because he is a freshly 2-year-old boy with almost no opinion on furniture. Other than that he loves bean bag chairs. More on that later.

Then it happened again. Lighting struck. Okay, I’m being a tad dramatic, but I did remember that Serena & Lily also has a rug that is stylish, yet playful. Which, again, is exactly what I look for when picking out foundation pieces for a kid’s room. My kid’s room formula is: neutral, slightly whimsical furniture + youthful accents + a dramatic wall treatment.

Pair all that with huge 25% off sale Serena & Lily is hosting through 12/3 and we officially have a design direction for Kristian’s big boy room. Here it is:

Bed | Rug | Basket | Bean Bag Chair | Light

I just picked up this basket to store toys and we gifted Kristian this bean bag chair for his birthday this week. My parents have a bean bag chair at their house and he’s obsessed with it, so I knew he’d approve. It’s currently sitting on our main floor and Kristian and his big sister are already fighting over it. I caught Daren lounging in it a time or two, as well.

Sale Picks For Kids

I knew I wanted something unique for Kristian’s walls, but I wanted to think farther outside the box than wallpaper. Vertical shiplap is a current trend, but instead of painting it the safe color, white, we’ll be going with an outside my normal comfort zone, grayish-green. Then because I’ve never met a ceiling I didn’t want to change, we’re planning to panel the ceiling in a very light wood, possibly white oak.

Paired with bright accents, I think it will be just the right amount of boundary pushing. In my mind kid’s room are MADE for ignoring self-imposed limits, I want magic in my children’s rooms and that doesn’t come without a few risky moves. If the plan doesn’t make me a tiny bit nervous it’s not the right one for us. For instance, our guest bedroom, which also happens to feature a fair amount of Serena & Lily products was designed with kid’s in mind and while simple, also pushed me outside my design comfort zone.
