    Everything in this slideshow

    • Everything in Its Place

      This once messy room was transformed into a cozy place for two sports-loving sisters. They wanted their room to be simple and sophisticated and filled with stripes and dots in pink, green, and blue.

    • Tucked Away

      To save space in this room for two, drawers under the bed act as another dresser.

    • Picture-Perfect Bedding

      Colorful bedding gives the room a feminine vibe without appearing frilly.

    • A Touch of Sports

      A velour soccer ball beanbag provides a soft landing and a place to read after a busy day. Two wall shelves display trophies and feature hooks for jackets and bags. To dress up the wall, the phrase and outline of a soccer player was attached using wall stickers (www.wonderfulgraffiti.com).

    • Bright Spot

      Storage is key in a kids' room. It makes it easier on the kids and the parents if everything has a place of its own. A window seat bench with a shelf for locker bins helps organize and store toys with ease.

    • Reading Nook

      Tucked behind the bunk beds is a cozy space to cuddle up and read. A simple book rack hangs on the wall and a blue bin holds the rest of the book collection. Add a small light and floor pillows to make the nook a perfect place to cuddle up and read.

    • A Dose of Dots

      Oversize canisters with lids invite kids to toss in large items such as plush animals, balls, and shoes.

    • Behind Closed Doors

      An armoire is the perfect way to hide out-of-sight storage. Add a jolt of color to the room by choosing a bold shade like this green apple unit.

    • The Perfect Mix

      Inside the armoire are baskets for clothing and colorful bins for books and toys. Mix containers to make it easy to identify items.

      Study Station

      A locker-style desk tames school supplies, while the combination chalkboard/bulletin board above it displays artwork and reminders of practice times and homework assignments. Labels on the drawers help ensure items get returned to their proper places.

      Metal drawers store notes or papers with magnets, keeping the desk surface clean.

      Quiet Zone

      A quiet foyer just outside the bedroom provides a separate place to tackle homework or chat with friends.

      Built-in frames on a corkboard above the desk make it easy to display favorite family photos. Special invitations, artwork, and mementos have a place, too.
