playroom style board(Don’t forget to enter the awesome Little Choux wallpaper giveaway!  The winner will be announced tomorrow!)

Currently, we are working on turning the basement into a playroom for Vivi.  Formerly, it was Chip’s office, and then a space where I worked on wooden signs and other projects, so it had become quite a mess of abandoned work, paint, and stuff that had nowhere else to go upstairs.  Finally, we managed to carve out some time to start working on it, and I’m so excited to have a fun space that is entirely Vivi friendly.  I really want to have a spot where I can host playdates and have mom friends over, so I’m working to make it comfortable to both hang out and play.  (No, I don’t have nor will I be purchasing that amazing Clarke sofa.  I just drool over it whenever we go into room in board – I’d like it in navy, please, or the blue velvet – and the color of this one is just similar-ish to the sofa we already have to use in the space.  This is me dreaming.)  This isn’t all precise, and some things will change, but it’s an overall idea for the feel of the space.  We aren’t planning to paint, and the room is currently a toffee color with awkwardly high wainscoting that is white, so it’s sort of half and half . . . guess you’ll just have to see when we post photos of the finished room!

Any tips on playroom storage/planning?  Or any questions you have that you’d like me to explore in this process?

    I have found that Ikea bookshelves and cloth storage bins are the most kid friendly way to store things. That way it is easily accessible for them and eye friendly when put away for you.

    Fun! Love, love, love!! Perfect timing too… I’ve been thinking about Zoe’s for awhile now, but haven’t made any progress yet. :) I’m sure Vivi’s room will be super fab!

    I love the idea of a baby and mama friendly area.  Especially somewhere that everyone could be comfortable for playdates.  The pink lamp is fantastic- and the couch- LOVE!  The fun color palette seems perfect for a basement- really cheery! Great ideas!

    Super cute! I’d love to hear you address making a play space work – visually & practically – when it can’t be separated from the rest of the house. We’re in an open floor plan loft so the playroom is in our living room. KATIEGNAUKIkKATI
