Project Fit Fam: Bunk Room Reveal

July 30, 2020

I’ll just say it. Kids rooms are my favorite. There’s nothing better in my job than creating spaces perfect for perfect little people. I love getting to know kids, looking inside their creative minds, and figuring out how best to share their personalities and passions through design. We designed several children’s rooms in Project Fit Fam, and everyone on Team Stagg agrees, this bunk room is one of our all time favorites.

First let’s talk about the backstory of this room. When we started working with the client, this room looked like this:

This room technically belongs to our client’s 9-year-old son, though all of the kids had taken up residence. These darling siblings just loved all being together so much, they would sleep in the bed, the trundle, then schlep in mattresses so they could all sleep together in the same room. It wasn’t a great situation as far as comfort and functionality, and so the idea for a big old bunk room was born.

Occasionally I run across an image of a space or a “moment” in a restaurant, building, or nature that is burned in my mind. I wait patiently for the perfect space to pull some of that original inspiration from and sometimes it all comes together to create the dreamiest bunk room we’ve ever seen. I mean, this room makes me want to be a kid again just to stay here. But I digress….

Several years ago, I came across an article in Architectural Digest featuring an apartment in Manhattan designed by Elena Frampton with some really sweet children’s bedrooms. The dark bunk beds with brass railings were so striking, we used them as inspiration for the bunk room in Project Fit Fam. Our clients loved the high contrast and put our own spin on them with a custom railing design, trundle, shelving, styling and wallpaper (which is a favorite from Stagg Design Shop!).

We designed the custom bunk beds with not only the four siblings in mind, but also cousins which often stay over as house guests. This room sleeps six with the trundles, with extra space in the middle just in case there are a few sleeping bagged sleepers you want to cram in.

As I mentioned, the owner of the room is a 9-year-old boy so even though all the kids like to sleep in here together, we wanted him to feel ownership over the room. His likes, interests, personality, and passions came together in our color selections and styling.

We have a few of our favorite and exciting new Stagg Design Shop products we used in this space, including our Adventure Art Print and two new art prints we are releasing soon in our upcoming Vintage Collection.

I know you’ll ask: the paint color on the bunks, base boards, doors and moulding is Wrought Iron from Benjamin Moore.

Immediately following our reveal to the clients, the kids ran into the room and made themselves at home reading and playing and climbing the bunks. It was such a rewarding moment and I knew we had nailed it.

I’m excited to share more of this gorgeous home project with you! Be sure to check out the Project Fit Fam Design Beginnings post to catch up on the back story, and watch for the next reveal coming up soon.

  2. Amber says:

    Hi. I love this design and am creating something similar in my boys rooms. I wondered if you would share where you obtained your brass rails from? This is the look I want to include and can’t seem to locate them in this configuration.

    Thanks in advance for your time and the beautiful inspirational projects you share!

    Do you have building plans for this set of bunk beds with trundle bed included.

    • Administrator says:

      Hi there, these were custom designed and made for our client so we don’t have plans available.

  6. Carmie Sanchez says:

    I was just curious if the pull out trundle bed has runners that it slides on or does it have wheels underneath?

  7. Danielle says:

    I am struggling to fine the railing. How or where did y’all find the railings?

  8. Kelsey says:

    Hi- What color is used on the bunks?

  9. Anne says:

    Hello! I am making bunks in a new home in Park City right now and funny enough Frampton’s and YOUR post here are the inspiration behind the railings that I’m going with. Problem is, I don’t know how to get those done. Were your railings aluminum? Brass? And would you have any suggestions on how I could find a company to do this?

    • Administrator says:

      Hi there, glad you found inspiration! These railings were custom made for our client project, and designed by our team.
