At Monarch Lane we love to Design a Room with all different things that inspire us. We have done some Rooms from a song, especially since we are located in Music City. But we wanted to play with other media to design a space for you.
So, the challenge was given to our Design Intern, Laney McCullough to put together a Room for a child and the movie that inspired her design, was the loveable, the very classic – Dumbo.
This room is designed for a toddler-age child, using soft colors and materials throughout the design making this space feel comfortable, playful, and bright. Using natural woods to bring warmth to the space, while also adding pops of blue and different textures to give contrast.
This design focuses on the bond that the mother elephant has with her baby. Making this space feel calming and peaceful with the soft colors, and with a pale shade of blue.
We use a CAD software for all of our design projects, but we wanted to try out Mydoma’s new Visualizer Rendering tool. With the 4K UHD rendering quality, it makes the drawing look more realistic. Check out the drawings below!
Here is the overall floor plan of the space. This room features closet space for clothing and storage, a night stand, a daybed (great for transitioning from a crib), space for toys, a reading nook with floating bookshelves, a large window for natural lighting, and a dresser for additional storage.
For materials, the different textures add a depth and warmth making this kid’s room welcoming and cozy.
With a readying nook in the corner, the design includes a soft boucle chair, playful pouf that can be used as an ottoman of another seat, reading light, end table to hold your glasses or drink, and a bank of floating shelves to have your favorite classic books.
The idea is this is a transition room from the crib to a big kid bed. A daybed is a perfect option. The sides add extra safety and when friends or grandparents come over for a playdate, you have the extra seating you need.
A low dresser with a classic design offers a stylish way to store clothes and toys. The décor is thoughtfully pulled together to layer in the Dumbo concept with elephant grays, natural greenery prints, and lots of great textures like; jute, wool, and cotton. I also love Laney’s use of a floor mirror in the corner for dress up and make believe. So essential in any room! You don’t have to live in a primary colored circus room when you have a young child, but you can allow a soothing pallet to grace your child’s space like this design shows.
