I love working on spaces for children. I want to show you a quick peek at some recent and ongoing projects. I am currently working on a playroom remodel in East Texas and hope to show more of that soon. In the meantime, you have to see how my client in New York recently added this under the stair playhouse nook in her basement! So cute..we are adding a little sign or numbers soo and she has painted the inside so it’s really coming along.. I love the dutch door.
Batman apparently approves of the space as well! Oh and don’t you love how they used the ceramic tile “wood flooring” on the floor..smart choice for this space!
The light is from Lowes and the carpenter just hinged the little window and of course no glass.
I love the little vintage mail slot..and the dutch door…The navy blue window trim keeps this little playhouse from being too girly in this house of little boys. I can certainly relate to that line of thinking;;
Below is a space I am working on closer to home in The Woodlands, Texas.
We just need one one blind hung and then the installation will be complete but I have to show you a sneak peek! I love how the fabrics aren’t particularly just for children…but grouped together with fun accessories and art from the homeowners own childhood room make it feel like a young space ready for when the grandkids are in town. The client has such fond memories of that circus art, it is really special to her and I am so glad we used it in the room. I love how it works with the fabric and other vintage accessories but the elegant headboards really fit with the overall style of the home. It turned out so well…I can’t wait to get better shots..these are just from my phone obviously. This is actually a “grandkid guest room” so the white headboard should be fine (in case you are wondering)..if it was an everyday kid room..maybe not;; I love the industrial old school inspired cabinet and sugarboo art. I will show the big picture soon. There are actually two beds. I love matching twin beds for little ones. And yes I also like chevron shams and soda crates for kids as well. You may have noticed!;
To see more of my kids spaces click here. Oh and I went to IKEA today (yes on a holiday, very smart..not!) and saw lots of cute things for kid spaces..i will be showing those later in the week or soon! In the meantime, please tell me about your favorite things to include in kid spaces or to make adult spaces more kid friendly. Maybe its baskets of children’s book or little vintage chairs or stools at the coffee table…I want to hear what works in your home!
