The goals for the playroom design? Practicality, lots of comfy seating, clutter control and flexibility (the owners wanted a room that could be adapted as kids get bigger). A cozy built-in bench handily solved two of the needs, upholstered in performance fabrics for better durability and easy cleaning.
This playroom is decked out in modern style. A bubble gum pink sofa complements a white mod coffee table and hanging lanterns in the sitting area. To the right, a floating countertop acts as a craft area, topped with wall-mounted shelves and under-cabinet lighting.
Pretty and on-trend pinks and mints bring this kid-friendly space together. Designer Gina Sims recommends being strategic when it comes to shelves in shared kid and grownup spaces. "If you have a book shelf, allow the bottom two shelves to have tall baskets for toy storage and the other shelves can house photographs, vases, books and other items you love. Brace these pieces to the wall and you're good to go!"
Built-in storage acts like a magic trick on kid clutter. Toys, books, stuffed animals are organized easily away into this playroom's built-in shelving. In another kid-friendly move, the bench cushion is upholstered in durable performance fabric.
Geometric Framed Art With Pink, Orange and Neutral Triangles Over White Background in Black Frame With White Mat
Look for wall art anywhere and everywhere, starting with your school supplies. We found this geometric notebook divider in the office supply section for less than $1. It looks super sweet in a frame, right? The black frame pops against the white mat and background.
The beautiful navy sofa accompanied by lustrous vinyl gray ottoman creates a neutral base for this playroom to come to life. Bursts of hot pink throughout the space-from the artwork to the accessories-bring in a lively, feminine feel, while orange zigzag poufs bring out the orange accents in the artwork, adding to the dimension of the room.
