It's time to explore the colorful kids bedroom suite at the HGTV Green Home! You're also welcome to check out our mini road trip, exterior, kitchen, living room & dining room and master bedroom suite too. We'll share lots of photos and details in our future posts about the sitting room & watch tower, laundry room (my favorite room!), and art work.
Looking in from the hallway you can see this is a fun and vibrant room! The sunburst mirror is made of recycled paper. I love this mirror and am pondering how to make a DIY version.
The funky orange lamps are paper-mache. The adorable, wooden recycling truck (made from recycled materials) and foam croquet set (the wickets and stakes are weighted) are from Pottery Barn Kids. The white bookcase is rolling storage from West Elm.green gingham from Pottery Barn Kids. Even the ceilings in here are green!
rolling storage unit, a white mirror, and storage baskets from West Elm provide much needed storage in the dressing area. This suite doesn't have a closet and another person on the tour with us just couldn't get over it. Do you think it is a crime like she did? The white side table next to the orange chair is also from West Elm. A lot of items in this house seem to be from there. Too bad the closest location to us is in Massachusetts. Maybe we'll hop in the truck and head to West Elm and Ikea (I've never been to one of those either!) some time this summer.
Nautical inspired light fixtures are used throughout the room. Tall wire baskets are used as a hamper in the dressing area and a toy bin (holding the foam croquet set) by the doorway to the hall. The doorway to the bathroom is on the left in this photo.green mirror is paper-mache. The orange towel rack blends into the orange stripe but it can be removed. The dual flush toilet tank and bowl are eco-conscious and will conserve water. I like the splash of color from the stripes.
tub, white walls, white tile floors, and the white Crate & Barrel shower curtain keep things crisp in here. I really like the vintage style fixtures.
