Kids' PlayroomTraditional Kids
Upstairs attic space converted to kids' playroom, equipped with numerous built-in cubbies, shelves, desk space, window seat, walk-in closet, and two-story playhouse.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
FORMER PLAYROOM: The playroom in the Munros’ old house sat over the garage and under the roofline. It featured many of the elements the couple would take to the new house, including the color palette, ample built-in shelving, shared desk area, kid-height whiteboard and cozy couch. A two-story playhouse did not make the trip — the Munros opted for the craft table area instead.Construction: Hurst Home Co.More: Kid Spaces: Ingredients of a Dream Playroom
When I look at this room, all I can think of is the statement by Trudy the Bag Lady in Lily Tomlin’s The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe: “I was not always a bag lady, you know. I used to be a designer and creative consultant. For big companies! Who do you think thought up the color scheme for Howard Johnson’s? At the time no one was using orange and aqua in the same room together.” And with good reason. But here the pairing succeeds because it’s used in a playful way, with alternating dabs of each shade relieved by fields of white, gray and natural wood.
6. Any parent knows that most of a child’s playtime happens outside of a bedroom. That’s why dedicated playspaces are great. This one has everything a kid (and parent) could want: open floor space, individual desks, lots of storage and a whiteboard as the focal point, rather than a TV. Plus, a Togo sofa, Flor tiles and snazzy paint should instill a great design sense in the kids who play in here.
