When Wendy Buck relocated from Southern California to Arizona last year, she found the home of her dreams — a 2,600-square-foot contemporary Southwestern style house in suburban Phoenix. Since her granddaughter, Lexi, is a frequent overnight guest, Buck wants the 2-1/2-year-old to have a special room of her own, but with a small 10x10 space, she needs help turning the confined quarters into a playful room that will grow with Lexi.
After meeting with all the designers, Wendy Buck chooses Dan Heldenbrand, whose colorful, storage-filled idea seems to best capture her vision for her granddaughter's room. Color on the wall, as well as the colors and fabrics on the bed, headboard, chair and window seat, really liven up the room and tie everything together. Baskets under the window seat, along with the desk unit and nightstand, add character and storage while maximizing the small space. From the newly matted pictures and the vintage plates to the toys on the shelves, it is easy to tell that this is a playful child's room. Just as Buck had hoped, it is also one with lots of character that can easily grow with Lexi.
