Child's design for a boy: a bright room in a marine style

What does the children's room consist of, how muchcabinets and why the floor should be pleasant to the touch, the example of a real project told us the interior designer Julia Kirpicheva Children - one of the most complex spaces for design. The requirements to the quality of functionality and the level of security are always very high, and it is also necessary to take into account the age of the child and the changing sphere of interests. And the main thing is to please the whole family at once. Interior designer Julia Kirpicheva told us about the difficult way to an ideal, thoughtful and, of course, beautiful children's room. Julia Kirpicheva, interior designer: Since 2010, she has been creating private and public interiors. In 2011 she graduated with honors from the Moscow State University of Design and Technology. Julia's design projects are published by leading Russian profile print media and online media. The designer calls the concept of his work as a conceptual approach to creating interiors.

- Customers, parents of a 4-5 year old boy, set the task: to develop a child-style design project in the marine style for their child. The interior of the children's room was part of the overall apartment project.

General interior style - eclectic with elementsclassics. In the nursery, we decided to leave the classical profiles a little, left little accents in the decor of furniture, designed according to my sketches. It was also required to provide the maximum storage space, but at the same time leave room for games and self-expression (the boy likes to draw).

Under the nursery was chosen the most lit room, without a balcony, located next to the parents' bedroom.

Children's rooms are one of the most difficult rooms. In designing a room for a child, special preference is given to safety, environmental friendliness, ergonomics and functionality. In our children's access to power outlets for security purposes is closed. They are placed either in furniture, inaccessible place for the child, or covered with blocking caps. Alexey Eliseev, co-owner and CEO of Manders:

- Children after three years will approach wallpaper, dedicatedtravel - adventure and travel like everything - or the hobbies of the child (ballet, sport, drawing, Indians). At this age it is important to take into account the interests of the child and his opinion.

Environmental friendliness has determined the choice of finishingmaterials: paper wallpaper, water-based paint for walls and ceilings, flooring - brushed engineering board. Due to the pronounced texture of the board, there are no scratches on it, besides the tree is very nice to touch, so the child will be happy to play on the floor. For the self-expression of the young master, we have a chalkboard. On it you can not only draw and hang your drawings, the board will also help you prepare for school.

The issue of storage was resolved thanks to two cabinets: under the clothes (closed) and under the books (open). The wardrobe under the clothes has different levels under the hanger. The book rack (height 2.65 m and depth 40 cm) is very light in its construction, for greater stability we fixed it against the wall, which is also a carrier. Alexey Eliseev, co-owner and CEO of Manders:

- For kids it's better to choose wallpaper with funnyanimals and birds, letters of the alphabet, cartoon characters. Before going to bed, you can tell a story about each character, learn the alphabet or come up with words beginning with each letter, and even whole stories.

Place near the window we gave under the desk, toWe also took care of his choice carefully. In addition to the fact that it is made of environmentally friendly materials, to avoid problems with the spine, the height of the table is adjusted for the growth of the child.

We put up a playground with a Swedish wall. A bed made of MDF, made according to sketches, width of 110 cm, is not a single suite with a cabinet, but it is combined with it thanks to a repeating decoration element. Not only adults, but also the small owner of the room participated in the choice of colors, drawings, themes and prints - the last word was always behind him. Alexey Eliseev, co-owner and CEO of Manders:

- Do not overload children's design. Intense print on all walls will distract attention, prevent you from concentrating or relaxing. You can beat different zones of children's wallpaper by companions. For example, the game part should be highlighted with wallpaper with a picture, the wall near the sports complex should be highlighted with wallpaper in a strip, the rest of the space should be decorated with background wallpaper with a fine pattern, monophonic wallpaper or painted. For a children's bedroom is better to choose wallpaper with a calm pattern. Also we offer to combine wallpapers of different colors. We always try to publish the most detailed estimates of this or that project - it's a pity that it's not always possible to look "behind the scenes" for repairs. We do not have a full estimate of this project, but we know for sure that it was purchased in the store to decorate this child.
