Colorful Kid's Kingdom
This creative bedroom is a lot of fun for the boy who lives in it.
Most people with toddlers agree that children are, at times, the true rulers of the house. While Lee Edwards, Jr., might not rule the whole house, he's definitely the king of this castle. Filled with clever furnishings and accessories, this bedroom is not only fun for young Lee, but it also showcases his father's love of all things medieval.
The castle motif solved a problem with the room's design as well. "Lee's bedroom is directly above the foyer," says his mother, Jenny, who is an interior decorator. "The foyer has a tray ceiling that creates a raised area in the bedroom." The solution was to build bunk beds over this potential obstruction.
For the color palette, Jenny wanted to do something different, and she purposefully stayed away from the pastels typically found in children's rooms. To reinforce the theme of the room, she went with bright bold colors much like the banners found at a medieval tournament. Reds, blues, and yellows make the room feel rich and inviting. Along with the vivid accents, she added torch sconces and a chandelier from an antiques store.
