Playroom Inspiration

Now that you all know I am working on our playroom I thought I would share with you some of the pictures I have saved over the last year as my inspiration…………..

Love the colors.  The lamps are what makes this room pop!!
I also like the addition of baskets for texture and a depth of color.

Great option for storage.

A perfect spot to read. The books on display are not only decorative, but it encourages reading, and I am all about encouraging  children to read!!

The colors used in this room are, fun and the extra storage under the bed is always needed.

I like the clean look of the furniture and the low profile of storage.

Again, I love the colors, and I think a cozy nook for reading or napping is a great idea.

Great looking fabric on the roman shade and the bookcases outlining the window make a perfect frame work.

Add a little navy and turquoise and I would love the colors in this room. I think the small daybed with storage is great for a child's room.

This room just says, “FUN” to me. I love the use of bright colors and the baskets are another great storage idea.

So there you have my inspiration!! Can you tell what direction I am going to go towards and what are some the elements I will be using.

If a client were to give me these images I would dissect them to find out which of the above elements would need to be in the clients room in order to please them. Can you figure out mine????

I'm with you, I love to see lots of books easily available for reading. I don't believe in hiding them behind doors or covering them. My children have go-to books based on the covers!(And, at 4 my daughter reads fluently.)
As for the playroom you are desiring...clean, well edited, pleasing colors and fun toys to ensure good memories!

It looks like your priority is storage. But I'm seeing a lot of different elements that most of the images share-white trim, texture, fun colors and, of course, Roman shades.

I think nooks and built in's around windows. They are very useful and make a great presentation.

Well, I think it will definitely have blue and green, bookcases and baskets. Plus there will be a great place to read. I can't wait to see it. Hugs, Marty
