A quick look at this playroom I just worked on for a client who needed a little feminine feel infused into the design. We went with a softer color scheme and a beautiful "frosted petal" paint color for the walls. I love that this will be a play space without a television. The Carolina grow-with-you activity table was our starting point. It comes in three colors and starts low to the ground but you can switch out the legs to raise the table to a height that works with children's chairs. You can't beat the style and price of the Devon indigo blue chairs. A hand-bent birch frame with a whitewashed finished gives the piece a coastal yet traditional feel. The high back is perfect for snuggles and stories. We added a little texture and patten with the jute chevron rug. It grounds the space and the light colors allow the piece to have impact without dominating the room. The colors are mimicked on the walls in the roman shade and drapes. Not to give it all away, but the couch is on clearance!
So impressed with this OKL playroom makeover for Zanna Roberts Rossi. The space needed to serve as her twin daughters playroom but also work double duty as a guest room. This white linen trundle bed saved the day! A limited color palette creates a whimsical yet sophisticated space. The feature wall with the bird wallpaper is my favorite element of she space.

Just for fun, here are some playroom toys I recommend

Suzanne and Lauren are the mother-daughter design duo of McGrath II. This little corner is featured in their latest work on a downtown Manhattan apartment. I couldn't love it more. The couch is upholstered in Ralph Lauren's "Galapagos-Lapis" fabric and it is an absolute show stopper!

The use of a large ottoman as a coffee table in a living space can bring in different textures and patterns. I especially recommend them to clients that need a "kid friendly" space. A fabric ottoman can withstand the beating of a toy digger, or an actual child climbing or falling in the space (no stitches please). Here are a few of my favorites right now: 1/2
