My New House: Playroom Scheme

I just realized I already did a post about our playroom, but now that the gym and bathroom are done, I rethought things and think I may do something different. Now that we have a full bath downstairs, this room needs to serve as a guest room as well as playroom so I want it to be fun but also easy to tidy up for extra guests. I’m thinking now of doing a moody grey blue wall to coordinate with the velvet sleeper sectional I ordered.  And while I already used my new ikat Rhys paper in the gym, I just LOVE it in this colorway and think it would be a great accent wall on the back wall. When I received the sample of this new playful Schumacher fabric that has both the right blue and a hint of the green from the bathroom off this space, I thought it would be the perfect roman shade fabric.

bookshelves // bins // wallpaper // roman shade fabric // sleeper sofa // sofa pillow fabric // side table // play table and chairs // beanbag // similar zebra ottoman // media center // playmat

The media center fits perfectly in the nook where the TV is hung. Eventually I want to take that patch of tile out and put down new carpet but maybe not right now (I.e. bleeding money).

HA, Baxter in his diaper is cracking me up.  On that back wall ideally I’d do built ins but financially I gotta save up for the kitchen/ master suite- so I’m thinking I’ll paper that wall, add those CB2 wall mounted bookcases to the sides, hand some framed kids art in the middle and call it a day.

Obviously these pics were taken before the gym was completed so we have no treadmill and that train table is gone, so there is actually a ton of space. We now have our Cedarworks playset down there instead, which Emma loves and calls “Weeeeeeee”. :)

Stay tuned! Sofa and media center due in January (maybe- we’ll see, I do not hold out hope!). So this will be an easy room to transform for the kids, who spend SO much time down here now!
