The start to my new year was such a pump fake. Just when I could see the light at the end of my Christmas break tunnel the weather turned freakishly cold and schools were delayed. This is great news for that 7:00am bus stop wait but terrible news for that preschool delay meaning I only got 1.5 hours without my most, um, free spirited child. I was not about to put my dirty hair up and throw on my Old Navy Uggs just to haul him there for a measly hour and a half. So getting these pictures edited and uploaded seem to take 9,000 hours. With 14,682 interruptions.
Drum roll please….for one of my favorite rooms ever!
I teased you all yesterday with the back story but today it’s all pictures…
This room had a typical playroom layout and included two nooks.
We decided to make one the girls side and one the boys.
Custom birthday posters that we framed using plexiglass and screws from a hardware store.
Sidenote: these are the Pom Pom Organic pillow from Pottery Barn Teen and although I love it, the monogram was very deceiving in the picture online. I expected a much larger letter/circle.
Harper came with to help break in the girls side.
As I mentioned yesterday, I decided to switch up the plans from navy, pinks, and greens, to a more stark black and white color scheme. I love how it makes the room feel a little less playroomy.
Finally had the perfect spot to use the IKEA Renarp lamp.
It took everything in me to not stuff this in my purse before I left her house.
I didn’t want to leave the room without color so we infused pops of it with these mats.
As well as with some new paint on their bookshelf and tissue balls in the nooks.
And of course, space to make and display their art…
(Green chalkboard paint mixed at Benjamin Moore)
The rug in the main area also brings lots of fun and color to the room…
And here is the boys nook…
We used the same coordinating fabrics in pink and green for the custom bench cushions.
Same idea for the roman shades. I wish I had more of a close up of that fabric because the polka dots are actually tiny fabric pom poms.
The little details are my favorite.
I am so glad that I was given free reign and could change up the plans.
The rooms still feels so kid-friendly but with pieces that they can easily transition down the road.
The space is so good that it has taught their almost two year old to read. I’m good!
