This bright and playful room belongs to Tove (age3) and Rykken (age 2). Jennifer shared the photos with us and tells us a bit about how the room came together: I wanted my children to be surrounded by colors in they're bedrooms and playroom. I think color stimulates creative play, affects moods, and adds joy to a household.

I love to use craft paints from JoAnn Fabrics. JoAnn has a brand called Craft Essentials that I use a myriad of colors from, as well as Apple Barrel brand, and Delta Ceramcoat brands of craft paints. The beauty of these paints are they are inexpensive, wash off in many cases, and come in many color choices. They work with stencils, rags, paintbrushes, and stampers, too!

I am very fond of warm colors, purples and oranges, and glow-in-the-dark (for glow-bugs and stars and planets).

Thanks, Jennifer, Tove & Rykken!
