Caits Room

Single Mom of 2 beautiful teenage girls, interior designer in Johannesburg South Africa. Children are my passion, I adore my job and strive to make a difference in the lives of autistic and ADHD children through thoughtful design.

Charlotte’s Playroom

Little Charlotte’s playroom was a birthday surprise from her Mom & Dad for her 1st birthday! With limited space in their home, they commissioned me to design a playroom area in an unused section of their living room.
The brief stated that the look was to be uncluttered and classy but playful and functional, whilst easily blending in with the rest of the adult space – a definite challenge on a limited budget!
I chose a contemporary pastel grey shade for the walls, which complimnted the taupe in the rest of the living area, and then introduced a fun element with a polka dot decal feature wall. The result was not only beautiful, but extremely cost effective and of course removable down the line when Mom & Dad get tired of it!
Next I designed a bespoke window seat/toy storage bench with a beautiful mint textured upholstery for the seat cushion. Adorned with gorgeous scatter cushions, it created a dual purpose solution in a previously barren nook.
A teepee is one of the most loved play pieces for littlies, and paired with scandi book ledges, creates the perfect little reading/chill nook.
Belly baskets added to the toy storage solution, and cute scandi house boxes were mounted on the wall for a touch of contemporary decor.
A firm believer in encouraging a child’s perception of their self worth, I custom designed framed quotes of affirmation for little Charlotte to grow up reading everyday.
A soft shaggy rug completed the picture, and left enough floor space for both play and a future junior Eames set. Charlotte adores her playroom, and didn’t want to leave the teepee!
