5 The juxtaposition of crisp white walls with an invitingly childlike mural (by Jason Brammer) in bold, high-contrast colors makes this girls’ room feel fresh and modern. The pop of pink at the window was interior designer Alex Jordan’s idea.
6 The high-energy combination of pink and orange makes the perfect backdrop for this sweet room, also by Glazier, while some grown-up but playful touches—a small-scale sofa with a zebra-pattern pillow, a sparkly chandelier—add spunk.
7 Decorator Laura Soskin combined her teenaged son’s interests in art and music and her penchant for decorating with large-scale vintage and salvaged pieces to create a cool room for a growing boy. The funky industrial credenza is the perfect place for stashing clutter.
