When designing kids’ spaces, we’re all about striking a balance between playful and practical. We believe in designing for longevity, and we always want to be sure our kid’s room designs can grow up with them.
If done right, you can create spaces that reflect personality but don’t require switching everything out as they get older.
Our latest kids spaces from our Home on The Ranch Project, featured on Season 2 of our Netflix show “Dream Home Makeover,” are the perfect expression of this idea, and we can’t wait to share them with you today!

It takes a team to bring these projects to life, and we were lucky to work with the team at Hebon Studios on the architecture and Everlast Custom Homes on the build to fulfill our client’s vision.
The boys bedrooms
When designing any home, it’s important to find some elements that can carry throughout the spaces to create a cohesive feeling. In our client’s oldest son’s room, we incorporated some of the elevated farmhouse details used in the home’s main level through this board and batten stained wood wall.
Contrasting hints of red, black, and grey against the knotted wood creates a great juxtaposition of a rustic and streamlined feeling, allowing the space to feel warm but fresh.
Designer note: When you have stained wood on the walls, adding more wood through furniture pieces can make the space feel heavy. In this design, we went with a modern whitewashed dresser to break up the tones, and it softens the entire space beautifully.
Because we had a lot of light wood in the bedroom, we wanted to mix things up a bit in the bathroom space. We went with a warm stain on the vanity and took it quite a bit darker to contrast beautifully with the cool grey stone on the floors.
