A Dreamy Child's Bedroom & Smart Family Office

More from the Washington Design Center's Spring Design House - Shazalyn Cavin-Winfrey of SCW Interiors created this dreamy child's bedroom. This space in the design house is fairly narrow and the built-in-bed with storage cabinets on either side was a great use of space. A pull out trundle bed offers an additional sleeping area. The interior's padded walls are upholstered with a really fun fabric from Cowtan & Tout. This room left me wondering if every house shouldn't have one of these nooks you can crawl into for respite and retreat, curled up with a good book or a few design magazines...


The painted custom cabinetry had a nice patina to it - which neither of these photos does justice to. The fabric was placed behind the cut out screens. The red cowboy hat is too cute!

Another very succesful room was the Family Office designed by Sandra Meyers of Sandra Meyers Design Studio, LLC. There were three separate functional areas incorporated into this room: a custom work space for four people to use at once, a sitting area and a desk space for the parents. This unique light fixture was a real hit. The work space is laminated with a wood grain stria.
Custom built-in shelving surrounds either side of the fireplace. Love the mixed red glass mosaic tile.





The glass desk is from McGuire by Baker Knapp & Tubbs. I am in love with the carpeting from Stark Carpet - beautiful.

Back to a post on book covers from last week - this one is fabulous!

I had a similar bed built in my daughter's room and just need to finish it off with fabric. It has been on the back burner but this picture has motivated me!! Thank you!

I have longed for a built in bed such as that since my eldest daughter was 7. She is now 28 & still have never built one. Grandchildren perhaps? Something so fun & secretive about sleeping in your own little 'nook'!
Great post!

Thank you so much for visiting our child's bedroom. We hope that it will inspire many to dream of such a personal space for themselves, children, or guests.

Fondly,

I cut the most delightful stencils 10 years back to match a fabric so similar to that...love it.
I have always loved the idea of a traditional box bed, the ultimate in built in beds

I have that book Turquoise and am ashamed to admit it is on a shelf in the kitchen. Got to get it out on show! I made the pommegranate martinis for my 40th birthday party. The messy, laborious process of hand-seeding and juicing and seiving the pommegrante seeds was so worthwhile. A truly gorgeous visual feast!
PS love your work! Thanks for sharing.

oh! and a girlfriend replicated the merengue chimneys as a substitue birthday cake for those who couldn't eat the croque en bouche! It was tricky, but she claims simple after a couple of practices.
