The homework nook in this contemporary kid's playroom features hand-drawn wallpaper and a red vintage chair. The built-in shelving in the desk is stocked with vintage toy cars that add a playful touch.
Fresh red flowers add softness and a touch of color to the top of the old world-style chest on this side of the bed. A fun red toy car and a stack of interior design books that offer inspiration for future home projects also sit on top.
Small toy cars can often turn up missing or scattered around your home. In this racing-themed child's bedroom, a basket placed on an open shelf at the bottom of a nightstand gives both parents and kids an easy way to gather and store the cars. This helps avoid lost cars and having the toys be a tripping hazard.
Compared to his sisters' rooms, this boy's room was cooler in tone with slate wall covering, gray wall paint and shades of blue decor. Acrylic cubes and shelves display the toy car collection in a modern and unique aesthetic. The acrylic finish does not distract from the wall covering behind and creates a playful "floating" look.
On the other side of the room, a closet with doubles doors keeps the little one's wardrobe neat and organized. Because there's so much space inside, the owners can also tuck stray toys -- and Barbie cars -- out of sight.
For kids who like playing with letters and numbers on the fridge, why not take the fun on the road? Buy a mini magnetic board, pack some letters and numbers in a plastic baggie and, voila, you have some educational (and non-digital!) entertainment for the car. You can also use the board as a play surface for magnetic toys like Magna-Tiles.
