SPACES | Child’s bedroom suite
Photographs by Laura Sumrak
This bedroom suite for a spunky 6-year-old “mini-client” named Sloane was created with her favorite things in mind: crafts, dance and fashion. House of Nomad’s Kelley Lentini and Berkeley Minkhorst centered the design around the multicolored wallpaper, which incorporated Sloane’s favorite colors of pink and teal. “The challenge was that we wanted to make sure it was a space Sloane could grow into. With this in mind, we didn’t give her rooms a specific ‘theme,’ and kept the color palette neutral. We added pops of color with a trendy piece or two, but in something she could easily swap out as the years go by.”
“Kids’ projects allow our designs to be playful and a little more daring with color and pattern. … Our goal was to create a beautiful, layered room that could grow up a bit with Sloane as the years go by.” — House of Nomad
The renovation included the bedroom, a craft room that can later be converted to a lounge or study area, and the bathroom, which was the designers’ favorite part of the project. “This was our first bathroom design for someone younger … Our design started with Rebecca Atwood’s palm wallpaper, and from there we selected playful scallop tiles for the shower.” The client’s favorite part of the room? The hanging chair that provides a cozy nook for reading and enjoying the splendid views of Lake Norman.
