Now I lay me down to sleep…

We’re getting there!  It looks like we’ll be starting construction on our house sometime in October.  Ideas are swirling around in my head now more than ever, and excited is the understatement of the year.  Of all the changes I’m looking forward to, I’m most eager for the kids to each have a room of their own.  As of right now, Madeleine’s crib is in Luke’s room and I never changed the boyish decor to include more girly things.  Here’s a look at some great ideas from the more traditional style of Restoration Hardware and the funkier vibe of Ikea.  Enjoy your Saturday!

This room looks like it would suit a prim and proper tween or teen. Heck, I’d even use it as a guest room for my mom.

Loving the muted palette, the painted furniture and the beautiful pattern in the bed frame.

I’m not sure I’d use the chandelier but this room is tranquil, pretty and ladylike.

My daughter is partial to purple so this room speaks to me.

Lovely…just don’t let her drink grape juice in here!

What little boy wouldn’t love a bunk bed? Here, they’re steel, which is a cool change from a typical wood bunk.

They had me with the navy stripes. Love the stain of the furniture, the swivel stool and wire catch-all bucket next to the bed.

Hey, baseball fans, this room’s for you. The trunk is a great place to usher the clutter that inevitably collects in kids’ rooms.

This one may be my favorite. Just look at those awesome night stands!



Simple, functional, unfrilly. When over-the-top isn’t your style.


As a lover of neutrals, this room is girlish without being overly pink and pretty. The scrollwork on the beds add a touch of fem.


Even in a room this small, all the basics have been thought of.


This room shouts FUN! For sleep or play, there’s a place for it all. Storage bins are a plus and the punch of red adds to the energy.

    Little Bear has the Ikea bed in the bottom picture. It’s great–we flipped it upside down when she turned 4 1/2 and was confident on ladders. We put a thin mattress underneath, some lights on the wall and, voila, an awesome reading nook and place for sleepovers.
