Private Residence modern-family-room

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to All Ages Spaces
Bright colors are kid-friendly, but also perfect for risk-taking adults. I love this orange-and-blue combination. This design also makes the most of the wall space, adding (attractive) bits of storage via bookshelves wherever there's a free spot.
Margaret Everton added this to Being Minimalist When You Like Stuff
And, yes, you can claim minimalism even with children. Parenthood just may be the most difficult situation in which to remain pared down and organized. I think it comes down to two main principles: a) be thoughtful about what you accumulate (which teaches a good lesson anyway), and b) organize montessori-like each category of toy in individual open bins where children can get in and put back on their own. (This has been a professional specialty--email me at txranchgirl@gmail for more details.)
Becky Harris added this to 10 Tips for Making Kid Rooms Modern
10) When the playroom extends into the rest of the house, keep everything portable. That is to say, have shelves, trunks, baskets, etc. so that toys can be enjoyed all over the house but easily neatened up and put away.
Margaret Everton added this to Five Hints For 1950 America Redux
This multipurpose room achieves that difficult balance between modern sleek and total liveability. Note how two simple colors of orange and navy do all of the work without any fuss.
Margaret Everton added this to Minimalism
Even homes with toys can keep clutter at bay by creating systems that not only help children get toys out but put them away on their own. Think less in terms of a mass of toys, and more in terms of distinct bins of play materials, such as blocks, etc.
