Toddler-to-Kids’ Bedroom

pink white and green toddlers bedroom by Robyn Karp InteriorsA 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.

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.

•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.

      I bought ikea curtains identical to that polkadot fabric a year ago. I don’t know if Ikea still carries them. They are thin cotton, a bit sheer, but you can’t (totally) see in her room through them. I believe they came in pink and possibly blue. They were quite cheap and very long.
