my house :: the playroom


I promised some of you on Instagram an update on the blog about my playroom.  This room has no windows so it was hard to photograph…though I doubt my photos would have been any better with natural light since I have no idea what I'm doing with a camera.

This is when we bought the house… the louvered doors below left are where our tv is mounted today:

After the renovation…..

This room is finally feeling right to me. It went through a slow transformation and we are finally to a stopping point! We spend a lot of time in this room so I wanted it to functional for daily use yet fun for the boys.


To answer a few questions:
1- Artwork is from one of my boys' favorite books that I scanned in, printed, and framed in Ribba frames. I really hope that I don't get in trouble for doing that. I just did it for my personal playroom…. I did not reproduce and sell anything! 

2- Beanbag covers are custom out of this fabric. Contact me if you are interested in purchasing any.

3- Club chair is from thrift store and upholstered in this fabric.

4- Artwork wall is simple picture hanging hardware with wire in between.

5- Walls, trim, ceiling :: White Dove by Benjamin Moore

6- Floor :: It's a porcelain tile… will try to find out details.

7- Pillows are by Lacefield Designs but that style is no longer available.

8- I changed out the shades on the wall lamps linked above.

Love this!! I'd love to have a space like this.....I'd also like to know more about the flooring. I think it would be a good choice for our basement. said...

You are good. Love it all! I am going to (try to) copy your art display.

It's fantastic, Brooke! Thanks for alerting me to the update on Instagram.

I really, really love the artwork grid above the sofa and the trunk-as-coffee table. Very cozy, fun and perfect for 3 busy little boys.
