Tristan’s Montessori Room


My goal was a Montessori-inspired bedroom in reds and browns, light and airy and entirely at the child's level.

Sit on the floor and look at the room from your child's perspective. Rather than putting everything up at adult height, try to see it from the height of a little person and find furniture to fit and hang wall art low.

Did you use a twin size mattress or crib size mattress?

You did such a great job considering your child. I really think that most of us forget about what a room might look like from a toddlers point of view and how overwhelming that could be. Bravo for this amazing job! I'm so inspired by this.

Such a child friendly space. I will be doing something similar for my son. Thanks for the inspiration.

It's nice to see just a mattress here. It's safe and comfortable. It's like sleeping the traditional Korean way.
