Child's Bedroom Photos: HGTV Green Home 2009

A mermaid and seashell motif lends magic to the citrus-infused HGTV Green Home 2009 child’s bedroom, designed by HGTV’s Sabrina Soto.

A palette of bright orange and hot pink reflects HGTV Green Home's subtropical surroundings and offers a modern take on the pale pink and white combination traditionally reserved for girls' bedrooms.

The day bed, crafted from reclaimed wood by carpenter David Brown, is padded and upholstered in a bistro-stripe outdoor fabric called “Azalea.”

A mermaid “sock” doll from Blabla Kids pulls Sabrina Soto’s whimsical decor theme together.

Hand-embroidered butterfly pillows from Kuk-May provide a shot of turquoise.

The pillow's embroidered details echo the room’s lively color scheme.

An upholstered club chair and papier-mache table lamp from Stray Dog Imports pair well in the cozy reading nook. A shiny, lacquered side table provides a nice foil for soft textures and nubby surfaces.

The papier-mache lamp takes the shape of a tulip tree and lends storybook detailing to the space.

A refurbished cabinet contains a collection of locally sourced treasures: children’s books, fun frames and seashore-inspired decor items.

A custom-crafted ABC chair rail that runs the perimeter of the room features pegs fashioned from discarded curtain rods.

Sabrina Soto's finishing touch – a collection of seashell plaques – was pulled together with shells from a local conch farm and backers made from scrap wood.
