I thought you might enjoy this fun, modern playroom I designed for a dear friend and client. Liz, from The Lemon Bowlis a local and very well known food blogger who also happens to be my friend. Her family recently bought a fabulous home and I am honored to work with them to create an intentional design for how they really want to live. 

The Client Brief

*design for 10 years by creating a space fun enough for kids without being juvenile
*modern and colorful 
*a playroom for two boys
*enough space for many cousins to play
*drawing and board game surface
*sleeper sofa for occasional guests

First task was looking for inspiration.

I started with the rug! I was so inspired by the texture and modern vibe. This gives them so much flexibility for the future because it doesn't look like a child's rug, and has enough color that it could work in many other rooms in the future should they choose to move it.

Add a sleeper sofa that also looks awesome and adds a punch of color!
Plus a darling toy storage with added texture.

They also needed a piece to ground the TV and in a playroom, extra storage is always key.
Plus, the boys need a desk that has room for both of them, plus the little shelves leave room for storing papers and board games. I paired the table with two blue chairs. Did I mention we wanted color? ;-)

Finally, a teepee to call their own. Because two little boys need a lounge-y hideout. 

There you have it! What do you think? 
Is this a playful space you'd like in your own home?
