Room at a Glance
Who lives here: A 3-year-old boy
Location: San Francisco
Size: 220 square feet (20.4 square meters)
Prior to Rootes’ redesign, the room served as an adult bedroom and a storage space for baby accessories. With a galactic theme in mind, she set out to create a sophisticated vibe while remaining true to the young boy’s wishes. Roote’s theory is that children’s rooms, if done right, can carry kids into their teenage years and beyond.

Rootes focused on low-maintenance decor that could easily be wiped down, and stain-treated the fabric used for the chair. The parents can sit in the chair and read to their boy until he’s able to do it on his own.
