This bright blue playroom is for perfect for little ones with lots of energy. Complete with two ladders and a stocked toy chest, there's plenty to keep the kids busy. When they tire, uncover a submerged sleep space beneath the floor—and suddenly nap time is no longer a bore!
The homeowners spent a ton of time in their basement, but before the redesign, it was awkward and drab with no seating. They wanted a space that would function for family life, but also be fun and inviting, so designers used a fun color palette, anchored in blue with pops of yellow and orange, and durable fabrics and furniture to create what the family needed.
A light blue and white wall color with rustic wall art creates a stylish, yet functional play area for any little boy. When friends come over, the entire center of the room can be left wide open for ample space to lay out games and participate in activities.
The homeowner loves art and has an extensive art collection, some of which inspired the designer's choice of color in this space. To complete the color story, designer Caroline Kopp personally painted two Mark Rothko-inspired paintings to hang on the display shelves, creating a graphic backdrop to the colorful space.
The goal for this space was to create a room that both adults and children could be comfortable in. With the homeowners' two small boys, the space would need to contain durable fabrics and materials, so designers chose a sectional that could easily be wiped clean with lots of multicolor pillows for comfort. Then, they had a stylish, nylon carpet installed that won't stain and would match the aesthetic of the room, while remaining practical.
The playroom is designed for both kids and adults. A small table and chairs, train table, a soft area rug and low bookcase is kid friendly, while an elegant chandelier, comfortable sectional and pretty decor, like the printed window treatments, gives the space a grown-up feel.
Dark trim, dark hardwood flooring and a mix of furniture styles create subtle whimsy in this transitional playroom. A peacock blue wingback chair pops against the mostly neutral palette and connects the space to the high-gloss blue room beyond. A curved ceiling adds sophistication.
