Inspiring kid spaces

June 15, 2012

Hello there and how the heck are ya? I’ve been working my tail off this week and am getting ready to reward myself with a glass of wine and a bowl of (stovetop…YUM) popcorn.

And now my mouth is watering for that popcorn so this post may be a quick one. ;)

Today I’m showing off some of your kiddo rooms you all shared at the May Show Us Your House party. Take look here if you missed it – more than 260 fun rooms are linked up!

I have to start with this AWESOME pirate room at Batchelor’s Way:

I saw this month’s ago and have admired it since – I think it’s SO well done. A bit of a theme but still classic. My son is all about pirates (and Legos, trains, ninjas, pretty much everything) and he would LOVE this.

My girl Chris at Just a Girl created an absolutely beautiful space for her beautiful girl:

blue and pink girls room

I love that sweet pink mixed with the blue, and the rug is just the perfect little twist. Gorgeous!

I think boys rooms are hard – and this one at Life as We Know it is so fun and colorful and bright:


I just love all the little details like the orange dresser, the chalkboard and the book shelves. This is a happy room! :)

OK, can you imagine having this playroom at Simply Organized as a kid?:


Holy cats, that is AWESOME! I just think this is the bees knees – especially that there’s one for the girls and one for the boys. Coolest. parents. ever.

If boys rooms are hard, then tween rooms are even harder. :) This sweet room at Finding Home is a perfect balance of in between for her tween girl:

I see a peek of an orange chandy in there too – I love how she mixed the colors in this space.

This nursery at Someday, My Favorite is a dramatic gray, and I love the wall art:

The walls are dark, but the colors and fun wall art lighten up the room and make it a very sweet space.

As always you all rocked my socks off with these rooms! I can’t wait to see your outdoors spaces – that linky will go up this coming Monday night.

Remember, if you’d like to pin these, please visit the blogs to do so. :)

And now I’m off to make that popcorn. Nom nom. Have a GREAT weekend!

  1. What great rooms! I think this is my favorite link up of the series so far...I found so many cool kids spaces! My favorite has to be the pirate room, though. I wish I had such vision!

    Have a great weekend!! Now I'm off to pop the popcorn I didn't realize I was missing! Darn you! ;)

  2. Thanks so much for the feature Sarah - oh how I love that Pirate room, and the bright boys room - all of them are such fun stuff! Love your bee's knees comment too! Thanks so much! Laura

  3. What great rooms! I love that Tween room -- I would have loved that back in the day! ;-) Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Love the soft blue and pink pastel girl's room that Chris created. Simple and very understated. Sometimes I think that people over design childrens' rooms. This one speaks to me since it is very unclutttered looking. :-)

  5. Oh, wow! Those are some amazing rooms. Thanks for sharing, Sarah! :)

  6. The bedroom with the girl and boy sleeping areas? Sheer genius! My brother and I might not have tried killing each other throughout our childhood if my parents had thought up something like that!

  7. You have got to stop talking about food! Popcorn, avocado ice cream, honestly! But these inspiring spaces do make up for it:) I've got to get my act together and finish up my son's big-boy room before he needs a tween boy room, which seems darn near impossible to pull off;)


  8. These are very inspiring kids' rooms! Thanks for sharing with us!

  9. I love the pirate theme room.Thanks for sharing.. :)

  10. Oh wow, I would have LOVED that playroom!

    I also really like the white tree on the blue wall, very pretty.

  11. Sarah!

    Thank you SOOO much for featuring our fun playroom! I have to admit I was totally stunned to see that you featured my space - especially after seeing all of the other inspiring kids rooms.

    Thank you so much!!! And anytime you want to come over and play, you're more than welcome! :-)


  12. My grown-up self likes the first two the best. (That girl's room looks absolutely beautiful) However, I know that I would have killed for a play room like the one you have highlighted. I think they win the Coolest Parents of the Year award. :)
    One day I will get up the guts to link up with everyone else, but everyone's projects are so amazing - it can be quite intimidating! Lol!

  13. How did I miss your shout out of my son's room?! Thanks for the little feature, my friend texted me telling me it was here!

  14. This is bad, but I mostly just want to copy the girl's rooms you showed just because they are more fun! My poor son! haha


If you have a specific question I will do my best to answer you back here!

You can find our paint colors and links to items at the "Our Home" tab at the top of my site.

THANKS so much for reading!
