Stripes of wood flooring create a rug-like effect in the home’s second guest bedroom, designed to accommodate a young boy. “That’s where the character starts in that room,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

The bare surface is ideal for play. Linda equipped the space with American-made toys fashioned from 100-percent recycled plastic milk containers.

A reading area comprises an adult-size chair upholstered in green fabric, a felt pillow and a Merino wool throw. “It has a very masculine vibe, which is a nice contrast to the pink room,” says Linda.

A table lamp, inspired by industrial bridge columns, is detailed with rivets and an oil-rubbed finish.

A stack of colorful children’s books provides endless hours of bonding time for parent and child.

An appliqued throw pillow, crafted by artist Alexandra Ferguson, incorporates felt fashioned from 100-percent recycled plastic PET containers.

The reading chair’s geometric pattern adds sophistication in a space that will grow along with a child. “It’s about textures, grays and creams in that space. And it’s very cozy and warm,” says Linda.

A topaz wall color complements light wood stripes in the flooring. The standard-size bed, crafted by carpenter David Brown from old doors, is as comfortable for a child as for an overnight guest.

A mirror is framed in recycled pieces of tin — a global tapestry of recycled iron sheet packaging.

An elephant bust, crafted from recycled cement bags and clad in vintage book paper, makes a green statement in the room. “And it’s fun, whimsical and silly,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “And I think silly is good.”

An industrial-style photographer’s task lamp spotlights the four-poster bed, a cozy space to do homework or catch up on reading.

Bedding incorporates a cotton voile bubble quilt in a soft-washed shade of iron, ikat-striped organic cotton sheets and custom-made, botanical-print pillows.

A steel and solid walnut ball coat rack, based on Charles and Ray Eames’ original “Hang It All” rack design, adds a retro twist to the room design.

Two natural grass hampers provide storage space for toys or laundry.
