A Trading Spaces Star Created the Cutest Kids’ Decor
Genevieve Gorder’s new collection is what magical kids’ rooms are made of.
If you spent most of the 2000s watching TLC’s room makeover show Trading Spaces, then you likely already know designer Genevieve Gorder’s classic-yet-modern style and fun-loving personality. For her recent collaboration with Land of Nod, she brought along both. Timeless investment pieces, such as a sturdy seven-drawer dresser, will survive the transition from kid’s room to grown-up bedroom, while whimsical accessories (think, shiny star-shaped pillows) add a pop of playfulness. Once your child’s room is outfitted with these stylish pieces and adorable details, don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to swap spaces.
Latticework Grey Daybed
This piece may feel like a splurge for a kid’s room, but the ageless design and the versatility of a daybed made it a worthwhile investment. Little ones will love using it as their personal sleeping nook, while teens will use it as a hangout spot, and it can even follow them to their first apartments, where it will become a TV-watching lounge.

Star Throw Pillow
A shiny metallic throw pillow adds serious star power to a child’s room. Pop this celestial accessory on the bed or a side chair, or buy a few to create a room full of stars. This pillow also makes a sweet gift for a little one who always picks out the shiniest thing at the store.

Grey and Gold Nightstand
Gold details add a bit of glitz to this streamlined nightstand. Another piece that will work for years to come, this nightstand has a sleek silhouette that will never go out of style. The top drawer offers some bedside storage, while the open area below is the perfect spot to tuck a basket or small garbage pail.

Lion Furniture Knob
If you aren’t in the market to buy a brand-new dresser for your child’s bedroom, update the current one with a set of lion drawer pulls. From afar, this hardware will add a touch of metallic to the room, while up close, it infuses an older piece with personality. Equal parts regal and whimsical, these pulls will make you smile every time you open a drawer.

Coiled rope baskets are showing up everywhere right now—and for good reason. The durable design is ideal for stuffing with toys, blankets, or shoes. This one is adorned with sections of colorful fringe that turn this serious organizer into a not-so-serious accent fit for a kid’s bedroom or play space.

You can’t go wrong with a pillow sham that combines two favorite things: flowers and stars. Adorned with illustrated blooms and constellations, this bedding will give your child the impression they’re sleeping under the stars, in a field of flowers. Order the complete set, or purchase just the pillow to perk up the current bedding.
