A Project For
this was the first playroom design for evaru and it turned out even better than i expected. i was able to use one of my favorite color combinations, chocolate brown and tomato red; among yummy lime greens and a hint of bubblegum pink for carter. i love how this room is totally for the tots, but is sophisticated enough that mom and dad love hanging out in it too.
believe it or not, the lamps were my jumping off point. i built the entire scheme around those lime green lamps. i'd love to say the graphic animal pattern fabric was the start, but that was actually the last thing i added to my design. it just worked out perfectly!
since i'm usually designing for clients, i'm able to adapt to their style, but my style is typically more contemporary with a twist of traditional elements. i love throwing a touch of unexpected into the rooms i design.
white toy boxes with circle fronts, www.viatoybox.com all other furniture, www.ikea.com/us lamps were from homegoods rugs and curtain rod from jc penny; www.jcp.com poms and alphabet decal from www.etsy.com fabrics from www.maryjos.com paint is sherwin williams 'celery' sw6421 all curtain panels and bench cushion were custom i used picture ledges from ikea to house books
the custom cushion for the bench is one of my favorite things. i love combining fabrics, and the three i chose for the cushion look so great together. i'm also a huge fan of the pom 'chandelier'. it was the first time i had used poms, now i'm hooked!
playrooms are fun spaces with no rules. don't be afraid to combine bold colors and patterns; you are trying to inspire creativity! storage is key for clutter control, but to make things more interesting, it's better to combine different types of storage.
