When a couple decides to bring children into their family, it’s a transformative experience. Not only will they have another mouth to feed and life to care for, but they will almost certainly need more space. Children need room to create, to play, and to grow while parents need their own space where they can work, relax, and generally enjoy themselves. It can be a challenge for some designers to marry these two needs, but in this home from visualizer Denis Bespalov, it is accomplished. A sleek, modern style winds its way through both the public and private spaces of the home to create a unified style that works equally well for all members of the family.
Storage and shelving are a necessity turned chic with the recessed design here. Light wood cabinetry contrasts with the slate gray shelving beautifully.
The living space opens up to the dining area, which is decorated with modern dining chairs.
The minimalist chairs and very simple table make the room feel that much more spacious and add a sophisticated touch of simplicity.
The simple desk gets plenty of natural light, which can be a boon to productivity.
Colors like mint green, gray, and white work well with the subtle pattern in the area rug as well as the natural grain of the wood in the door and desk.
Plenty of space in the room is left empty, so perhaps the children could play on the floor while mom or dad works away diligently.
Moving deeper into the private areas of the home, we have a bedroom decorated in plenty of cool tones,
Cool tones like gray can be especially good for a relaxing night’s sleep.
The idea of recessed shelving also manages to carry through into this bedroom with a recessed television mount.
Overhead, recessed lighting adds to the spotlights of the pendants and bedside lamps.
The en suite bathroom uses an interesting black and white pattern for the tile, as well as a standout toilet paper holder.
A cluster of the IC S Pendant Light design is a very stylish addition to the bathroom decor.
A large deep tub, overhead lighting, and soap and lotion dispensers complete this bathroom in style.
Over the sinks, which feature unique faucets, a round mirror with its own flattering ring light is a wonderful addition.
In another bathroom, wood plays a bigger role in the design.
Against the wood, white tile and porcelain give a chic air.
Recessed shelving continues to appear, here next to the tub for toiletries.
And of course, the kids rooms. A bit of brightness is only natural in these more playful areas.
But turquoise and orange are not allowed to take over, only add accents to white and grays.
This room is another example of how kid’s decor needn’t be cheap or garish to be fun.
In another room, bunk beds and a double desk are a bit more practical than a teepee.
Indeed, bunk beds are one of the most fun ways to incorporate kids’ beds in a design.
And just because double workspaces are a necessity in some family homes does not mean they need to be cluttered.
