Irma's Colorful Swedish Playhouse

Dos Family

My parents swear it's not true, but I'm convinced I have some Scandinavian ancestry to account for my deep love of their design aesthetic. And it turns out this aesthetic carries over into play spaces for children; like this one, Irma's Playhouse, with the trademark white walls with pops of bright color.

A little bit of diy craftiness, some vintage finds and a dash of Ikea and you've got the recipe for Scandinavian flavor. Irma's space has a play kitchen, reading (or napping bench), a doll bed, artwork, toys - all the things a good playhouse needs.
