I’ve got to say, I had a pretty cool bedroom when I was a kid. My bed was up on a high platform with a big window at the foot looking out across a meadow — and there was lots of storage beneath for my books, Breyer horses, and other supplies. A door led right outside so I could carry my play outdoors when the weather was fair, and a low desk gave me room to spread out with pastels, homework, and craft projects. I loved my bedroom so much I kept it that way into college, when my dad moved and I had to take it apart.
What I’m saying is that I thought I had it pretty good, until I checked out some of the kids’ bedrooms on Hometalk, and wow. My dad is so fired.
We spent a lot of time traveling when I was a kid, which created a love of travel that lives on, but also a love of airplanes! This flight-themed room is fantastic and highly adaptable: while it’s designed for a younger children, a few smooth updates can help it transition as the child grows older. That’s what we call smart kids’ room decor, because kids grow up fast, and before you know it, the toddler who demanded a pink and purple room is going to be a teenager sulking because you won’t let her paint the walls black.
