New Life To A Room | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

The kids are gone to college and to live their lives, you are left with either a boy’s or girl’s room without any function anymore.
If you are lucky, the kids will not return to live with mom and dad again as a single young adult. The first feeling that assails you is the emptiness of that room. No more mess, no more noises, and no more friends over. Closing the door behind and leaving it in the past, as the kids were still there is a crime. What do you do with that room then? Your budget will tell you what this extra space can become. It can be all yours, for all those activities you have been wanting to do and didn’t have space or time for it.

Often, I have been hired to redesign the kids’ room who flew away and turn them into a dream room for one of the parents.
It was fun to see the various requests I had. I made a game room, a reading room, a guest room, a craft room, a spacious walking closet, a wine room with controlled temperature (these last two rooms were so fun to remake), a painting studio, a music room, a home office, a dancing room, the choices are endless.

This one below was a boy’s room and became a cozy guest room, redesigned with affordable furniture and soothing colors. It is also used as a reading room when guests are not there. Hopefully, the boy of this house will return to visit their parents with a spouse and then with their own kids. The red daybed is there just for that reason.

Enjoy the Before and After transformation.

If you are in the same situation, think of the many possibilities with which you can fill that empty room. Ciao,

    I love what you did to this room, Valentina. I don’t mind if my boys stay home and keep their rooms. I already have a room that I work and write it. It is full of all my antique and vintage dolls and paintings.

      Robbie, you are lucky to have your own room, where you can write and do your thing.
      If I were a mom I would have wanted my kids to stay as long as they pleased. Thanks for the visit.
