Homeowner Kathleen would be the first to say that this room in her house was just kind of sad. It was intended as a playroom for her kids, ages 6 and 9, and as a place for the family to hang out together. With paint, some new furniture and colorful accessories she was able to breathe life into the room to make it a vibrant, stimulating part of the home. She even found a way to make the big brown couch work in the space.
Kathleen shares the details of bringing this room to life:
To begin, this was the dullest little playroom - no life, no color, no light, no organization, no nothing. So I started with selecting the base color for this space. A color that would be great as an accent adding a little extra umph, but blending seamlessly in with other colors. I selected a beautiful shade of pumpkin orange because it is a great unisex color, can grow with the kiddies - transitioning nicely across the ages, and it's fresh, it's bold, and can pack a colorful punch!
While keeping some furniture pieces, other pieces (bookshelves, side tables, and ottomans) were carefully selected to provide much needed storage. Some of the pieces were refinished/upholstered to compliment the design.
The kiddies absolutely love this space! It's a space that's fun for the kiddies and equally as fitting for mom and dad's design taste.
