If you’ve visited my blog before or follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably figured out by now that I’m a total sucker for fun, colorful kids’ spaces.
I love looking at playrooms, nurseries, kids’ rooms — you name it, I love it. It’s so fun to see how other people style childrens’ spaces. I also like getting new ideas for ways to organize toys and books, and am constantly inspired by the colorful, whimsical rooms I see around the internet that, frankly, make ME want to go play in said room.
I mean, that’s the goal, right?! To have an amazing space where both parents and kids love spending time and creating memories.
Here’s a quick look at our main-level playroom. Well, at least the main attraction of said playroom. This is one of the first spaces I set up when we moved into our home about three years ago:
I’m currently working on creating a playroom/lounge area in our basement, and it’s so close to being done. More on that soon!
In the meantime, I wanted to share these 10 amazing playrooms I found with you that are sure to inspire your decorating efforts in just about any kid-oriented space.
It’s hard to pick a favorite space out of all those I’ve shared here, but I guess if I was forced to choose, I might have to go with Rebecca’s space that she created in partnership with The Land of Nod. It’s modern, it’s colorful, it’s fun — seriously, what kid or adult wouldn’t want to hang out here?! Oh, and I am obsessed with that teepee — we actually own the same one!
Those chairs. And those pillows. And all the fun colors! Please promise me you’ll go check out ALL the photos of this adorable space.
While we’re on the subject of super cute playrooms created with lots of items from Target’s Pillowfort collection, please look at this lovely spot created by Kristin Jackson. I love the bench seat — especially the “We All Scream for Ice Cream” throw pillow — and you can’t go wrong with vertical storage and those crates! Such a good way to keep the space tidy and organized.
I love this fun, modern playroom created by Cyd over at The Sweetest Occasion. The best part is that it’s stylish and, most importantly, it’s PRACTICAL. Here’s the thing: While I love “pretty” toys just as much as the next person, the reality is that your kid might need a foam playmat, and she might love that Fisher Price plastic walker. (My kids did!) I really appreciate that Cyd created a space that is both beautiful AND real.
I’m in love with this bright space from Steele Street Studios. If your kids love crafts and/or have toys with a million little pieces, I’m a big fan of using a dresser to conceal the potential clutter and keep things organized. And these colorful baskets, and that wall art…..excuse me while I move right in.
Here’s a great space from Kirsten of House of Jade Interiors — she partnered with The Land of Nod to create this cute playroom. Those white shelves are the perfect addition to a play space (I love those colorful baskets, which come in about a dozen colors!). And floor bins and baskets are a must to collect all of those “the shape of this is so awkward that I have no idea where this would fit” toys.
As Lauren says, this playroom makeover is sorta Joanna Gaines, sorta Emily Henderson. All I know is that it’s a whole lot of adorable-ness (yeah, that’s a real word, you guys) in one spot. And if you’re into the modern farmhouse look, then this post is full of inspiration!
Okay, so this is a nursery, not a playroom, but how fun are these shelves?! And the turquoise stripes on the ceiling are incredible. Get more inspo from Ashley over at Curls and Cashmere.
If you’re a mama of all boys, then you will love this space designed by J & J Design Group. Again, that shelving unit and my favorite Land of Nod gray and white-striped bins are ON POINT in terms of corralling toys, games, and more. And the gray poufs are a perfect addition to this kind of space, as they can serve as extra seating or a makeshift side table to hold a juice box.
Aubrey’s colorful playroom / TV area is a great example of a dual-purpose space that has tons of personality. I also appreciate the fact that this example shows that you CAN decorate around pieces that aren’t the latest and greatest — like a comfy taupe sofa that is PERFECT for kiddos to jump and lounge on — and still wind up with a beautiful space.
What are your favorite ideas from these playrooms? One of my biggest takeaways — and I hope one of yours, too! — is that play spaces don’t have to be filled with super pricey fixtures to be both beautiful and fun. Think simple shelving, colorful storage baskets, a table and some chairs, and lots of open space for playtime.
