Kidz Rule: Laura Bohn at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House

Kips Bay 2012

At this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House—the 40th!—we’ve designed a playful, stimulating child’s room, focusing on two senses: sight and touch. Animated images are projected onto walls and ceiling, courtesy the digital wizardry of Insight Onsite; many surfaces are painted high-gloss Benjamin Moore chartreuse (our signature color). For a tactile experience, we’ve lined one wall with fuzzy brush tiles from Robin Reigi, and installed 3-D tiles above. A round shag carpet from Edward Fields adds texture on the floor. A space-saving unit by Resource Furniture that converts from a desk to a twin bed frees up precious square-footage for play—a must in any city apartment.

Laura used a space-saving unit that converts from a desk to a twin bed from Resource Furniture, and lined some walls with fuzzy brush tiles and 3-D tiles from Robin Reigi.

In one corner she installed a blackboard and a dramatic foil curtain
from ElasticCo. The fabric is embedded with magnets that allow the
curtain to fold on to itself.
