GET A ROOM

|The Study Hall|

Welcome to Get A Room, a new concept in online interior design I launched for 2018. Each month I will provide an inspiration design board for a fully designed room along with all the details and vendors so you can cherry pick the items to make your dream room a reality for your space.

Introduction: 

What is GET A ROOMEach month I will provide my followers with a free Vision Board complete with all the links to recreate the room in their own home. It will all be designed, matched and balanced to create a perfect room every time. All you have to do is know your room dimensions for windows, rugs and furniture pieces. Think about those box cosmetics and fashion subscriptions, it is the same idea but no charge to my followers.

Why is it FREE: First and foremost I LOVE Interior Design. I have decided, that while I personally love Industrial Farmhouse Chic and Farmhouse design, which is uber hot right now; I know it is not everyone’s cup of tea. As a Interior Designer I can appreciate all forms of home decor and I wanted to provide some of my other creative visions. Then, make them available to my followers, for free.  Also, I get a lot of inquires about interior design for specific types of rooms and yes I can still do some custom design work.  However, I felt like this was the quickest platform to package a few universal designs and you might be able to find a design that works for you, that you just love.

THE STUDY HALL

Back to school will be here before you know it and depending on what grade your kids are heading into, it might be a good time to think about creating a study hall in your home. Today kids come home with so much homework, way more than I ever remember having when I was a child. So, the concept behind this area is simple, make a communal work space where homework and school projects can be done. The space gives a much needed diversionary line between work and play. Studies have shown that having designated areas designed specifically for work helps to keep all individuals, including adults, task focused and distraction free.  A study hall also gives you a perfect location to store reference books, maps, craft supplies, or other learning material that you may not otherwise wish to have stored throughout your home.

What makes a good study hall? Lighting has got to be the #1 key to staying focused and being able to see what you are working on. Make sure that your area is well lit, especially if you are utilizing a space without natural light, such as a basement. Since this space will have a common worktable, I recommend a large light with multiple bulbs to give off plenty of light. I went with this more industrial looking fixture because, it’s a kid’s space and it kind of looks like an octopus or monster, which is cool. Also, kids tend to be rough on stuff, so nothing too fancy or anything that requires a lot of cleaning, would be a good selection. I also recommend several floor lamps, like the  61.25″ Tripod Floor Lamp   for individual reading areas, these will provide direct  light perfect for specific task. 

 

Atchison Dining Table

 A large dining table will work great for homework, writing assignments and computer based projects. You will want it to have a nice sturdy top that can withstand all kinds off arts and craft projects. I would recommend a rustic look, it tends to cover the daily ware a tear and looks intentional. As for the chairs, you have plenty of options, metal, wood or even an acrylic are fine and all of them will pair nice with a farmhouse style table. I personally like the the modern school house Bentwood Round Chairs (Set of 2) acrylic chairs seen on the inspiration board. I think for smaller children the durability factor would be better. However, I also think the metal Alyssa Dining Chair (Set of 4) would probably be a very close second choice and work well with older children, plus they come in a variety of fun colors too. 

For individual reading assignments, I recommend several individual club chairs or even a kid size sectional sofa that could possible be split into sections. I also really love the idea of having personalized pillows for each of your children made to designate their own space. These were a couple of really cute ones that I found ranging from sassy to sophisticated.

Okay this might be my favorite piece in the entire room. The Abbottsmoor End Table With Storage, also has a hidden USB charging station built into the base. Y’all I love this for a study hall, a living room, a man cave, a guest room, basically  anywhere you have people and devices, this is a handy piece of furntiure. I especially love that they have notched the sides so you can still use your device while it is charging, with the end table in a closed position. 

 

COPY MY HOMEWORK: 

Really this should say copy Joanna Gaines homework, she is the one that made using sugar molds to hold crayons and pencils so popular, but I love the look and stand behind the functionality of these pieces. So here is every size imaginable for whatever length table you have. I personally own a 12 hole sugar mold and love it.

  1. Thanks Ingrid, I appreciate it. It is funny I got me degree in Interior Design years 20 years ago then went in a completely different direction, in fact I worked at the head quarters of a large mutual fund company after graduation, and got my 6, 36, 63 licenses so I would have a “real job” (which bored me to tears) because there was no money in Interior Design when I graduated unless you owned your own firm, LOL. Go figure! Now I can go back to my roots and do it for fun.

  2. Jen, this is a wonderful idea! It’s so fun to share your passion with others just because you love it! Your style is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing your ideas and being so willing to help others!

  3. Congrats on being an interior designer. It is one of those I always wanted to be, I like that you do not just focus on the aesthetics of a space but also on functionality. That is a good thing.

  4. Great idea of free content. I love interior design it’s something I’ve always been interested in 💗

  5. Absolutely LOVE the “Get a Room” concept! So cool. And this “Study Hall” room is making my inner nerd so happy. Especially that light fixture! So neat!

  6. What a great sense of style! I love the pendant, it’s super cute.

  7. Thank you Lisa I really appreciate that, sometimes it is really nice to get back to your roots. I am pretty sure my parents would be happy to see me actually using my degree again…. for something besides just for a paper weight….LOL 🙂 Sorry a bad Interior Designer joke, probably why I never actually went into the field properly.

  8. Having a study room is definitely helpful. I was actually just thinking about making a study room for my boy. He is still about to start kindergarten but I wanted a place where he can focus on learning without his toys to distract him! Thanks for the tips!

  9. Jen, this is brilliant. You are an amazing interior stylist, I can’t wait to see more of your room ideas!

  10. Awww thank you Madison, you know are always so sweet and complementary of my design work, I really appreciate that so much. I really to a step outside my comfort box this time doing some kids spaces, but interior design is interior design whether you have children or not, the principals are still the same lol.

  11. It is another winner Jen! I love this space so much, and that the furniture you chose was kid sized. You made a beautiful space that caters to the needs of little people that value their independence, especially when it comes to school work. Great job.

  12. Thanks Terri I am so glad that you like the concept. I have to say I really fell in love with that chalkboard art too! I can see it as the focal point of the room. 🙂

  13. This is such a great idea, for the kids and the perfect time of year to add one to our home. I love that periodic table art, it is so cool! I will have to check it out.
