Being a first-time mom, I am easily excited about designing new spaces for my son. I had a blast designing his nursery, and as he gets older and more interactive, I'm looking forward to designing a playroom for him. I had a playroom growing up and loved building forts and playing make-believe in it. A playroom is a great space to promote creativity and exploration. This ideabook is all about whimsical touches for the perfect playroom. — Natasha from Schue Love
