Carli wrote us to share her children's lovely, light-filled play/music room in Sydney: There is one room, right now, where I can walk in and say 'This room is just right'. Toys, books, crafts, a piano, and a play kitchen all find a harmonious home in a space traditionally reserved for dining which her family felt was better put to use as a play area.
My three love this space we created together off the kitchen in what is supposed to be the dining room. I like it that they are close to me when I'm cooking so I can admire their imaginative games. And that it opens to the outside is a huge bonus so we can take everything outside on fine days (we have sunny days about 99% of the time), especially good for backyard painting because all their craft stuff is kept in this room.
