Children have active imaginations and can create their own form of play and art with nothing more than sticks, rocks, mud or other natural elements found in their outdoor surroundings. Take, for example, this trio of kids who are entertaining themselves with something as simple as a tree log.
Wanting a place where their kids could safely roam, the homeowners asked Eisner Design to convert their basement into an indoor playground. The space includes a climbing wall, swing chairs, a bookcase with a built-in reading nook and a loft for movie nights and sleepovers.
With its proximity to the playground, this modern pavilion is a great space for families to come and enjoy their days. With a clear line of sight from the sitting areas to the playground, this structure gives the parents a place to stay cool in the shade while their kiddos enjoy the swings.
A light wood bunk bed features circular cutouts, a fireman's pole and a slide leading from the top bunk to the floor for a fun and playful bedroom design. A blue and green checkered rug creates a turf-like look and matches the green and blue hues used in the cityscape wall mural. A hanging chair dangles below painted clouds for a swing-like element.
This family-friendly backyard includes entertainment for adults and kids alike. A playground with a small slide provides entertainment for the little ones, while a two-level deck creates enough space for outdoor dinner parties for adults.
Kids of all ages would delight in this amazing pool that mixes fire and water features, a rope swing, water slide, waterfall, and plenty of places to relax. Watch all the fun from comfortable lounge chairs on the pool deck, underwater stools at the cabana's swim-up bar, or take it easy in the hot tub.
Soft, luxurious details add elegance and personality in these homeowners' spaces. A minimalist chandelier adds light to the bright space, while fabric head chairs give texture and dimension. Detailed paint draws the eye to the storage buffet at the rear of the space. All of these details work together to create an elegant, lived in space for these homeowners.
The homeowners wanted a luxe, feminine space with lots of texture in their master bedroom, so designers incorporated soft velvet bedding and signature window treatments in neutral tones to frame the gorgeous, unobstructed canyon view.
A large, stylish kitchen is the perfect relaxing space for the family to cook together, enjoy their meals and entertain their friends. White cabinets around the main section of the kitchen keep the space light and bright, while the blue, arabesque tile adds a splash of muted color. To add contrast and counter space, designers installed a kitchen island whose color scheme is the opposite of the rest of the kitchen-dark cabinets and white countertops-to add interest and create a transition between the kitchen and dining areas.
The neutral living room is a perfect collection of simple furniture and elegant details. The sofas and chairs used in this space are simple, stylish, elegant and durable-perfect for this growing family of four, while the elegant chandelier and minimalist decorations keep the space from feeling too cluttered, making this area of the home the perfect place for the family to relax and unwind together.
The homeowners wanted a cool, masculine space for their newest addition, so designers brought in a rustic, wood crib and fun sports accents. A mobile with all sorts of sport balls hangs over the crib, and pennants from the homeowners' favorite sports teams adorn the wall. The finishing touch is a masculine name plate that hangs above the crib, making the space personal for the family and their new baby boy.
