San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014: Boy’s Bedroom

Another charming kids space in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase was created by local design firm, Regan Baker Design.  The little boy’s bedroom (aka Little Roamers Room) was inspired by Regan Baker’s own children’s love of building forts.

Taking center stage is a darling denim tent hung from the ceiling. It can even be expand across the room to create a giant playhouse. How fun is that! I also love the hanging lantern centered inside the tent. So darn cute!

Here’s a closer look at the bed layered in throw pillows, wool blanket and bed sheets from Serena & Lily. Love that sweet stuffed chicken too and animal pocket dolls from Coral & Tusk!

The homeowner asked Regan to incorporate the existing 1970s wallpaper. The zig zag parade of animals in orange and white inspired the tribal artwork and southwestern inspired textiles also found throughout the space.

How cute is the closet with map wallpaper, arrows and darling clothing from Tea Collection?

The showhouse is open through May 26th, so there is still time for you to tour. Also, for more information on this boy’s room, visit Regan’s blog!

Design Reveal :: Blue and Orange Boys Bedroom

I’m thrilled to be sharing a peek into a boy’s bedroom I designed for a client’s son. Even though my client, Suzanne (also a friend and fabulous lifestyle photographer) lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, she choose my virtual design services. This gave her the design direction she was looking for, but the ability to purchase items herself and at her own pace.

Suzanne envisioned a “big boy” room that her son would enjoy now and through his teenage years. One way we achieved this was to select a neutral wall color – Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. It’s a warm gray that gives the room a fresh, modern feel. While the rug, window treatments, furnishings and bedding pull traditional hues of blue and orange perfect for a boy any age.

To get a full appreciation for the transformation, I’ve included a look at the room before (below). There are actually two images – one of when it was a yellow nursery and the other more recent for the toddler years (although the paint color had already been changed for the new design).

My client’s son loves his new “big boy room.” The desk with locker-style drawers is his favorite – it’s just plain cool. On the other hand, I love the dark brown dresser with contrasting white pulls and the custom photo canvas above. The photograph taken by Suzanne of her son adds a pop of color and a personal touch to the space. Love!

How does Simplified Bee’s Virtual Design work? Step one is to answer a detailed questionnaire that narrows down the client’s vision, style and budget. Next after a scheduled phone call and consultation with the homeowner, I will create a design delivered digitally that includes mood board(s), floor-plan(s), paint colors, budget/shopping tool, detailed product info and any additional instructions the client will need to finish the room. The client then has the opportunity make the design come to life by purchasing items directly from the shopping list and at their own pace. For more information and pricing, please contact me!

Happy decorating!

Adorable Kids’ Rooms by Designer House of Ruby

Melodie Rubin is the founder of the luxury San Francisco Bay Area  interior design firm, House of Ruby. Her timeless interiors balance classic aesthetic traditions with personalized, custom details, resulting in spaces that are exquisite, yet approachable. I was particularly drawn to the children’s spaces Melodie has designed. Each wonderfully created with kids in mind, but still have a sophistication that mom & dad’s love.

In this boy’s room Melodie selects a charming daybed in navy with star detail. I love the layers of pillow in various colors, sizes and textures. Such an inviting bed!

In one corner a beanbag chair is placed in a canopy. What a great quiet time spot. A pair of red cubbies help keep books, games and collections organized – love that they are one wheels!

Pink and Yellow Girls Designer Bedroom

Yellow and pink is a beautiful color palette for a little girl’s room. Here Melodie chooses wallpaper in yellow with pink polka-dots covering the walls. The upholstered pink headboard with nailhead trim is a standout in the space.

I love every inch of this nursery! It’s layered in beautiful pattern and color. The white dresser with persimmon accents is so chic! The sweet elephant artwork hanging above adds a touch of whimsy to the space.

Melodie also seamlessly mixing styles in the space. A traditional tufted back upholstered glider is accompanied by a modern lucite side table and contemporary fish lamp.

In a child’s bathroom, Melodie covered the walls in a darling fish patterned wallpaper. I am loving the shell and starfish mirror she added too!

Melodie is a master with the details. I particularly like the blue pom pom trim she added to the red Roman shade and the lucite rod and hardware for the shower curtain.
