The single mother and daughter who live in this Decatur home outside Atlanta share a pretty space where toys and other kids gear is hidden within the beautiful design. A buffet cleverly hides bins with toys. "This project is a great example of a common request I get from clients with small children, who do not need a formal dining area: how to create a play space without having a room that's completely devoted to kids and toys," " says designer Gina Sims. These clients want a space for their children, but do not want to lose the "adult" feel of the room. This is a common issue as more clients choose open-concept homes.

Wood walls are accented by white cabinets for a clean and warm look in the Francis family's newly renovated kitchen and living room in Atlanta, Ga.

This space hosts the two Stansell boys, who share this bedroom that could also be described as their own little well-curated museum of interests. Their personalities and evidence of their adventures are proudly displayed around their room. If you look closely you’ll spy that at least one of the boys is a budding chef. They also have a small family of hamsters between them, and they love yellow tractors. The boys’ room is a really good example of how I approach kids' spaces: always go monochromatic with walls and bedding. Between their toys, books, art, rugs, etc. there will be plenty of opportunity for stimulation/adding interest without becoming too busy. My fave in the room? The drapes are perfectly appointed: they look fun and put an exclamation point on the entire space.
