Room To Grow
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. Capture a similar style with an orange-upholstered headboard: the wave detail is fun and whimsical, while the navy welting keeps it feeling tightly tailored. 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.
