Design-conscious parents opt for color in a toddler’s room.
Custom rooms for little ones often have more real ideas than other spaces in the house and this mid-century modern toddler’s room is no exception. Built-ins with color block components help keep things visually organized, beginning with clever wall graphics. Two painted-on cars are ready for imaginary trips on the meandering gray road up the wall or along the orange stripe that functions as an around-the-room highway. Such a bright color band cuts the room in half visually and keeps the sight lines focused on the floor so that the furniture doesn’t look like toddler scale. Instead of placing a table and chairs in the center, a low island with shallow shelves on the end and a storage drawer in the center was designed for the same purpose and can be accessed on all sides from the floor. A kiddie sofa along the wall looks sturdy enough to withstand, bouncing, sitting or piling on.
The bed has a handsome trundle to pull out for an overnight guest and the fitted cover that slips over the mattress helps keep the room neat.
Below the flat screen, a kid’s credenza offers modular basket storage as well as sturdy bins. I’m of two minds about TV in a room for tots but it might help keep them out of Mom and Dad’s bed.
The orange, green, red and brown color scheme is basic yet wonderfully sophisticated for a boy. Adult supervision is clearly evident in the selection of the orange drum light which must look a lot like setting sun by the end of the day.
