Urban Cool Playroom…

So, I have to be totally honest. Prior to having children, I cringed at the thought of having brightly coloured toys scattered around the house.  I thought it would make my house look messy, cluttered and disorganized. To me… it was a design “faux pas” right up there with sponge painted walls and carpeted bathroom floors!

“Why do these kids need so many toys anyway?” I would think to myself. But what did I know? I wasn’t a Mom yet!

To put it simply, I had no idea how amazing it would be to see my daughter stack a blocks for the first time. I had no idea that teaching her how to cut a million pieces of paper in my living room would bring me so much joy! And I definitely had no idea that my heart would melt every time my daughter found ANOTHER toy phone and put it to her and said “Mama…”

So I guess you can say that I have come to terms with the clutter. I have learned to embrace our messy toy filled house. That being said however, I still really wish that I had “proper” play room for my girls.

This takes me to the most amazing play room I have ever been in! It belongs to friends of ours and I just love how much thought, love and creativity went into designing this playroom for their sweet little boy.

This room definitely has it all! A modern look that ties in to the décor of the house. The coolest fixtures and furnishings and anything else a child would need to let his or her imagination run free!

So with that I say, just let kids be kids! Let them have their own little space, that allows them to grow, play and explore, no matter how messy it gets!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
