My name is Jenny Bash. I design, decorate and paint nurseries and kid’s rooms and have so many stories of happy little kids who love their rooms. I am the owner of Burnt Toast Studios. Burnt Toast Studios began as two former college roomies who would meet in our kitchens and dream up crazy art projects to keep our creative spirits lifted. Today, we design, decorate and paint rooms for clients in and around Chester County.
I tell you that story to help you find your own design direction for your kids’ rooms. Start with something they love be it a character, a toy or just a combination of colors. Use it as your launching pad to complete the room. I approach room designs the same way I had approached creating ads (ages ago before I had kids and found my second career), by interviewing my clients and listening to what they like and want to achieve. For example, if you’re decorating a nursery do you want to have a sleepy place that’s soothing and relaxing or do you want it to be a place that stimulates and sparks some activity? Or, do you want a combination of the two – a bit of play space AND a nice sleeping area that will keep them peaceful for hours? Once you make that decision then it’s on to what goes where and which colors are more dreamy and which are more energizing, etc. Make a plan, draw it up, and then keep your eyes open everywhere you go for those special accents and toys that will help to make your vision fall into place.
