A kid's bedroom filled with friendly animals can be a dream come true. Two brothers with similar tastes live in a pair of creature-happy animal-themed bedrooms.
For the rough-and-tumble 4-year-old, a pond-themed room was the way to go. Cool blue stars in the "outdoor" space, painted frogs, reeds, and clouds create no-worries artwork throughout the room. Underfoot, a large braided rug creates the look of water.
Choosing simple patterns such as stripes and zigzags gives the bedding longevity.
The window treatments here are simple and light: a sheer, short curtain near the crib and a simple valance over the changing table, letting the sun shine in on all the creatures resting in room, both human and otherwise.
More animals parade around the patterned rug that includes all of the room's colors.
Bright orangey-red details keep the color scheme from being too pastel and washed out, and will help transition the room to toddlerhood and beyond.
