Meant for the young, the wild and the wandering. This is a bedroom designed for the explorer in all of us - a journey through a half-imagined almost restrained oasis on the horizon, balanced with an unearthing of the wilderness deep within the jungle. It’s a room intended for climbing, hanging, and pure adventure - a hideaway for the seeker of all things fun and free.
To create the space, colorful, whimsical and textural design elements were integrated into the design:
Wall Treatment: The walls are covered in Calico’s ombre wallpaper and create the backdrop, a song to the African sky at dawn. For an unexpected layer, artist Cody Blocker painted silhouettes of safari animals onto the wall.
Bunk Beds: The custom-built tree fort-inspired bunk bed provides lofted space for the small room with the ladder doubling as structural support and an element of play.
Rug: A custom-colored circular Kyle Bunting rug anchors the room and is reminiscent of a giraffe.
Termite mound inspired play enclosure: Inspired by safari photos of sand hills and termite mounds, the wooden play space was custom-made using sheets of plywood and provides an escape from reality.
Lighting: The 3D wooden elephant mask projects visual art, adding stunning layers.
Shelving: Trapezoid-shaped shelving units arranged in a zigzag configuration on the wall provide another dimension.
Table and Chairs: The seating area features a custom-designed table that matches the angular shape of the stools.
Gym rings: Wooden rings hung from the rafters add interest and another dimension to the room.
Never stop exploring!
