Bright Basement Playroom


When we moved into our house a year and a half ago I didn't have much time to decorate the playroom, and over time it became a mish-mash of color, stuff, and kid clutter. Recently I revamped it with some paint, fabric, new storage, and new play zones (pretend, reading, legos etc.). All of the details can be found on my blog,

Design Inspiration

I found a great fabric at Ikea and used it as a "jumping off point" for the rest of the room. 

Decorating Style

When it comes to decorating kids rooms - I'd describe my style as thirfty, fun, and functional. 

Project Details

Oh, there is a lot of DIY in this room! My favorite thing is the play tent I made with a couple of sheets and a hula hoop. All the project details are on my blog,

Favorite Items

Besides the pla tent I also really like the kid friendly daily schedule. It helps the au pair plan acitivities and keeps my 3 year old motivated. 


Don't be afraid of color!

I like the fun colors, the spacious center space, the storage, and the fact that there's a lot of things or activities the kids can do here.
