A few simple changes creates an age appropriate room.
Designer Robyn Karp turns the tot’s room into a big-girl’s room by swapping the toddler bed for a twin. Everything else remains unchanged. A solid three-color palette of cotton-candy pink, apple green, and bright white afford the luxury of using a vibrant multi-colored floor covering like the one here from Stark.
The quilted polka-dot upholstered headboard and bed skirt are the only pattern in the room except for a subtle repeat of polka-dots on the framed mirror above the dresser and a toss pillow. We see a glimpse of a crystal chandy — so popular in girly-girl rooms and, of course, Ms. Karp’s signature sheepskin-covered pouf that appears in many of the spaces she designs.
DIY inspiration motifs (L-R):
• Use a white and green polka-dot fabric to sew the bed skirt and upholster a headboard.
• Faux-fur fabrics are available in many colors in addition to the white used to cover the pouf ottoman.
• The designer room floor covering is “Candy Stripe” from Stark Carpets. You can find similar styles at Dash and Albert or search for “striped cotton rugs” on the internet.
