Inside Our Home: Playroom
How we choose to decorate homes and what we surround ourselves with tells more about who we are and then we even realize. I’m one of those people that loves seeing other peoples spaces. Today we are giving you a peak into one room in our home. Enjoy a look inside our home to the girls adorable playroom.
To begin design, I broke up the space into four sections: Seating, Art, Imaginative Play and Reading.
Since the room originally was used as a guest room we wanted to keep that function and no better way than a sofa that doubles as a Queen Size bed.
One of the first decisions made for the room was the lIttle village removable wall paper from Chasing Paper that we put up as an accent wall behind the sofa.
I'd like to say it was easy to put up but Joe and our neighbor Jarod may disagree. I’m sure other designs would be much easier but all the lines needed to be lined up perfectly so the whole thing didn’t look off. The crooked lines of our old house may have had something to do with the extra difficulty as well
We stocked the table with a paper roll and a cart with everything from construction paper to crayons. The goal was that the girls would put markers and crayons back to their assigned containers. Which for the most part they seem to be able to follow however rarely do the markers have their lids and if someone has a secret to get kids to stop ripping the paper off the crayons than my OCD would thank you forever.
Every room needs good storage so we utilized the space under the table. I love these white bins with wooden lids from the container store. They not only look nice and clean but make it simple for the girls to pick up their own toys at the end of the day.
As soon as a saw these adorable rainbow chairs at Crate Kids I knew they would be the perfect bright pop I was looking for in the room. We paired that with this affordable rug from Target that adds the right amount of cushion on the hard wood floors.
No playroom is complete without an area for your imagination to run wild. My goal was for this corner to feel like a little play house. The Ikea Kitchen set is the perfect neutral and affordable kitchen option. Throw in a few empty spice containers and vintage kitchen pots (thanks Ebay) and you have yourself a sweet little kitchen set up.
The trunk which is used for dress up clothes we found at Crate Kids and adds beautiful texture to the space.
The whole room is filled with sweet items from friends and family including the wooden rack for them to hang necklaces and purses on. Above the kitchen are two cartoon portraits made by my dear friend Ellen. She created these pictures of our girls that perfectly sum up their personalities. We have tons of her other work throughout our house. Check out her work at https://www.ellenkilmer.com/about-me
All of the little details in this room make this space one of our favorite rooms to spend time in which is good since we spend a lot of our time here.
Thanks for stopping by to see inside our home.
