This is pimp:
No, kid's rooms do not have to be full of color.
Yes, it can still be playful and interesting with a muted pallete.

Le Souk "unique living"  offers both the amazing crib (that grows with your child), as well as this great deer printed duvet. Check out their website for more beautiful pieces.

Tine K Home

Tine Kjeldsen opened her company in Denmark at the young age of 22. Kjeldsen has stood out amongst the other "shabby chic" interior decorators in the area by creating "a more minimalistic approach: clean colors in grey, blue, white, dark brown and black which eventually lead to the creation of a collection of cushions and quilts, and consequently the foundation of the company Tine K Home."

The posting below is a selection of images from Tine's own Danish home which clearly defines her company's style and methodology to creating a minimalistic home (all the while offering a cozy feel)

"According to me, the future is interesting, difficult and rather complex, but I try not to complicate matters: live your life in a simple way – and live in happiness.
I am confident, I stay true to myself, and I am sure my collection is a reflection of how I perceive myself. Hence its name: Remember Yourself."          - Tine Kjeldsen

First seen at Remodelista.com, this selection of kitchens exude class by using several complimentary materials (i.e. tile, brick, cement, wood) and all posses a well organized, clean environment with their methods of storage and placement.

Notice that the majority of these kitchens do not have over-the-counter cabinets. . . Those days are over. Welcome to the new way of storing "above the counters" - Shelving.

It's about time someone started making kids rooms and their toys look like something other than a cartoon. I love the way Restoration Hardware has included their rough, industrial elements into the semi-playful characteristics of their children's line.

Here is a selection of some of my favorite images from their website

As opposed to the rocking horse . . . The rocking dog
Kid's height industrial school table
Canvas floor cushions

A girl can't ask for much more  . . .

Love the rough metal mixed with the soft linen, silk screen liners

Could this get any cooler? I mean seriously . . .

so slick - what if all children were so privileged as to ride one of these around?
