There's a worldly theme going on in this fun eclectic living room: A map rug lies underfoot, a globe sits on a side table, a collection of globes made from repurposed children's books hangs from the ceiling. A mishmash of colors, patterns and textures throughout the rest of the room keeps the space lively and whimsical.
On the other end of this fun playroom, designers created a reading area for these busy boys, complete with a great collection of children's books on a modern book rack, blue bean bags and something to climb on. More storage lines the right wall in the space, and large, glass front doors allow mom and dad to be able to check on their kids at all times.
In the nursery, bookshelves are hung low so that they are easily accessible to the homeowners' small children.
