Last summer, 12 interior designers and artists created a series of glamping (a portmanteau of “glamorous” and “camping”) tents at Sandy Pines Campground in Kennebunkport. The designs ran the gamut from nautical to woodsy, globally eclectic to hyper-local, and each one functioned as a miniature showcase of the designer’s talents and aesthetic.

A boys’ bedroom in A Place to Call Home: Tradition, Style, and Memory in the New American House uses contrasting colors, contemporary art, and a mix of patterns for a look that’s both playful and sophisticated.

A modern table is a child-sized spot for art projects and games, while mixed classic plaid and striped flannel sheets create a cozy place to rest weary heads. The effect should be colorful, creative, and cool—just like the kid for whom it’s designed.
