There is something to be said for a playroom dedicated entirely to the children. It contains all the toys and you can just shut the door when not in use. On the other hand, it's also nice to have a shared playroom/living room in the house where the entire clan can congregate.
This room we spotted at Light Locations has it all. There is comfortable seating for adults to curl up with a good magazine or book. Meanwhile, the kids can break out the toys in the same light-filled room. Keep toys limited to the space that you have and you can easily create a playroom for the entire family. If this photo has made you want to see the rest of this gorgeous home, run over to Light Locations.
