A Great, Graphic Playroom

Professional Project

Name: Maddie (5), Harry (3)
Location: Dallas, TX

We have a small upstairs playroom just off the laundry room. The goal was to maximize the space and encourage learning/creativity by designing creative book and art walls.

In addition I had custom wallpaper made for the room with a special photo of our kids on the beach in Australia last summer (their Dad is Australian). We also took a tired looking train table and had it lacquered and the top painted with chalkboard paint. The rug is an indoor/outdoor rug from my shop and the stripes on the ceiling just make it fun. I also used plastic canisters and an acrylic magazine rack to make access to art supplies easy for the kids.

It is a room that is much loved and well used in our home! Just outside the playroom I added a little upstairs mom's desk in an unused hallway alcove outside the room. It functions as a place to put up birthday invites and school stuff so we don't lose track.
