The Half Gray Room - Bunk Bed - main image

Today, Tamar Mor from Roomer Design share with us one of her kid’s room designs: a monochromatic, fresh shared bedroom for two boys. You will find a gray children’s room plenty of fun details and practical solutions. The key to a monochromatic space is to stick to the one color (in this case, the bottom half of the room was painted in gray) but draw interest by adding splashes of color with pillows, prints, and other décor accessories.

The two young boys living in this room in Tel Aviv, Israel, needed to upgrade their toddler beds into a cool bunk bed. Their room was pretty basic with random decoration and furniture and their mother wished to turn into a chic monochrome kingdom.

The concrete pillar located in the middle of the room was quite a challenge to solve and I had to think of a creative idea that will integrate well with the rest of the room. I thought: what can be built around the pillar and be both functional and pretty? The answer was a shelving system with a desk. I designed a pretty simple desk with shelves that were supported by the concrete pillar on one end and the wall on the other. And here you go! The pillar is almost gone 🙂

The design concept was a “Half Gray Room”. The bottom half of the room was painted in gray including all the carpentry: the bunk bed, the wardrobe and the desk. All in the same gray tone.

The decoration was going in the same direction with monochrome tones and accessories. Touches of color are given with some pillows on the bed and the children’s books that are located on the shelf. Posters and postcards hanged on the wall with some colored washi tape can also do the work.
