Bold & Bright Playroom

    When you work with colors as varied and as bright as this, it could easily turn into a headache, both literally and figuratively, but I think you have kept it in harmony. 

    How did you make the pom chandeliers?

  • ashley

    i simply ordered the poms from etsy. if you buy from ‘prost to the host’ she includes the monofilament you use to hang the poms. i bought 3m adhesive hooks from lowes and placed 3 on the ceiling in a triangular pattern. i wanted the poms to hang closely so they would look more like one element, so keep your hooks close together. to hang a pom below another, you have to ‘fish’ the monofilament of the lower pom through the upper pom and then to the hook. it was super easy.

    i highly suggest you fish the monofilament through the poms before you try hanging them. i didn’t, and it can be tiring trying to hang them all while standing under those 3 hooks!
    good luck, hope this helps!

    I also think you did a great job working with all those bright and varied colors. I agree with Crumbs that it could have easily spiraled out of your control. I love the bench as well, I think that way you added the storage beneath is a good touch.

    There’s a mishmash of bright colors, but overall, the room doesn’t look cluttered and doesn’t look like everything’s being thrown in. Very well-executed. Not everyone could do this. Not everyone could put in more than two brightly colored elements and still come up with something well-coordinated. You’ve really got talent. I’m sure your little boys would want to play all day long in their bright and bold playroom.

    Hi Ashley:

    Thanks for that tip.  I personally hate it when I have to be on a ladder for a longer time than necessary and we have such high ceilings!

    I’ve just looked at etsy, and found some adorable poms… I think am going with the 7 Pom Design, have it from ceiling to floor near one corner, or do you think that would be too much?

  • ashley

    to creativecrumbs:
    i think that would look very dramatic and awesome! will there be kids in this room? that would be the only thing i would worry about. if the poms are near the floor in a room where kids will be, they might get crushed.

    Hi Ashley, I’m using your room as inspiration for my playroom! Thank you listing where you bought items. I was wondering if the green boxes were from Ikea too. I looked and couldn’t find them! Thanks again!

  • ashley

    to karinmac: the green boxes did come from ikea. they are the kassett magazine boxes.
    so glad you like the room, i think it’s such a fun space! good luck with your project!

    Love this idea!  I am very thrilled to find a playroom so bright and fun, yet you did not have to paint every inch of the walls in orer to achieve a great look.   Thank you!
