wall height - This is a fun idea for a kids space. I wondered what the wall height is. Would my basement--8 foot ceilings--be able to have a space like this? thanks!

I don't see why not. You could leave off the steps and just have a regular doorway for grownups if there wouldn't be enough headroom otherwise.

The rug is something the client already owned when we did the renovation. Sorry, not sure where it came from.

How many feet are there between the cool wall and the back wall? Fantastic idea!

Paint color - What is the paint color?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

As for the garden-level floor, Brendan says, "The space at the bottom of the stairs is a kids' playroom—the odd leftover space under the stair was turned into a playhouse—with portholes and a small tunnel for toy trains and toy horses." Oh, and about those circles Brendan says, "Portholes are way fun! It needed to be whimsical, and yes, there is a fort behind the portholes and the stair—good times!"
Becky Harris added this to How to Ease Your Way into Bold Color
Experiment in a play space. Speaking of more casual spaces, try out a new hue in a child's bedroom or playroom. Your little ones will have strong opinions and brilliant ideas about color you may not have thought of.
In this playroom, an accent wall defines a separate area, which makes this the perfect space for group play time and individual play.
Becky Harris added this to 9 Townhouses from Coast to Coast
Coburn continued to make the most of the stairwell, adding portholes and a fun fort for the kids tucked underneath the stairs.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Kid Spaces: Making Room for the Brood
Room dividers. Don’t have an extra room to designate as the kids’ playroom? Consider building a divider in your living space. The kids will have their own area, and you’ll have a place to round up all the toys and gadgets out of sight.
Becky Harris added this to For the Kids: Secret Forts Indoors
This space under the staircase is a lot prettier than what my brother and I had going on. The perforations in the wall add a whimsical element for the grownups and peek-a-boo spots for the little ones.
Becky Harris added this to Need More Space? Look Under the Stairs
This is the ultimate fort, complete with kid-sized opening and porthole windows.See more secret forts
Vanessa Brunner added this to Get Organized: 5 Ways to Keep Toys Tidy
4. Pay attention to comfort and style. While you want your child's play space to be clean, you don't want it to be sterile. Add color and texture, and make it a comfortable space to hang out in. Choose flooring that's comfortable but easy to clean. Stain-resistant carpeting is always a great choice, but padded play mats or rugs can work just as well on hardwood floors. Having a play mat also gives your child an assigned surface to play on. Mats can be stored under beds or rolled up, which is helpful if your child's play space is shared with another room.
Use every surface. Instead of there simply being a plain wall here, the cutout openings, longer bottom step and change in ceiling height combine to create a unique open yet clearly defined passageway, with space for a child’s playroom.
