Storage, storage, and more storage was needed. And, if it could be pretty storage, even better. This space needed to function as an all-around playroom including a table for tea parties and coloring, dollhouse for barbies, open space for push and ride-on toys, small storage for small toys, and large storage for big toys.
Everything gray, white, or patterned.
Even though it's a kids space, adults spend quite a bit of time in there too...with their kids- so I wanted some sort of sophistication to the endless kid stuff. So, I framed all of the kid artwork, and tried to add a little bit of sparkle with the acrylic lamps.

The ones that are personalized or homemade like the framed kids artwork, tend to lend themselves to creating most of the colorful character in the space.
Create separate storage solutions for big and small toys. And, 'showcase your kids' artwork.
