7 home design elements to consider when decorating a child’s bedroom – OCRegister

Kids are fickle creatures, but their whims don’t have to come at the price of fun or function when it’s time to update their rooms. The current growing trend in kids’ room design is to find the right mix of personality and practicality in a room that serves as a play to sleep, play, study and relax.   

The key is to “give kids a room they will remember,” said Melissa Soto, founder and creative director Nico & Yeye, a Los Angeles-based kids furniture company that offers minimalist, versatile designs.

That said, it’s also important to consider how the room can be adapted over time, Soto said: “Parents want durable, smarter solutions that flow with the aesthetics of their home.”
