Kid's Bedroom Photos: HGTV Green Home 2010

  • The exterior roof line creates an angled ceiling in this bright and festive room, where pillow fabric inspired furnishings and the room’s color palette.

  • Nestled near a mobile storage cubby, a cozy nook, illuminated by paper-mache lamps, provides a perfect spot to read, relax or catch up on homework.

  • Clothing rods positioned at waist height encourage kids to stay organized. “Helping children learn to hang up their things is an important part of green – learning to put away, be organized and be tidy — because it ultimately makes life simpler,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

  • Bulkhead-style lighting with thick frosted-glass lamps and a polished nickel trim add a nautical twist.

  • Bunkbeds, custom-crafted by MacKenzie Brothers, maximize floor space. Each bed features its own dedicated nautical-style reading light.

  • After considering rope, galvanized piping was chosen as the construction material for bunkbeds, which counter the room’s traditional architectural frame.

  • Colorful pillow fabrics continue the circles and squares design motif while tying in the red color inspired by the kitchen’s quartz countertop.

  • Serving as the room’s focal point, a recycled-paper mirror, purchased in Yarmouth, elevates the playful design. “It’s fun and a little silly, but still has a nice pow,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

  • Pet portraits by Nicoletta Poli, including Green Grass Pink Tongue, deliver a lighthearted look.

  • Eco-friendly toys, chosen to match the room’s color palette, offer up hours of entertainment.

  • A foam croquet is ideal for indoor or outdoor play, as posts are weighted to remain stationary.

  • A recycling play truck is appropriately crafted from recycled material.

  • Building blocks tell a green story, as they are fashioned from reclaimed material.

  • A level-cut loop carpet with a large-scale diamond pattern continues a red theme that flows throughout the house. The bound rug more than looks good – it contains 25-percent, post-consumer recycled content and is recyclable.
