Fun and Functional Playroom


I wanted to create a neutral gender space. It had to be fun, joyful and at the mean time stimulate kids imagination and creativity. It's also a very easy to achieve project, on a budget with minimal DIY. 

Design Inspiration

The main idea was to create an indoor and outdoor of my daughter's little home. The lower part (yellow paint) represents the inside of her house : kitchen, table, books,toys....and the top part (blue paint) to be the outside world: Blue sky, Jungle animals, Butterflies.....

The color inspiration is the warmth of southern france. 

Decorating Style

To me, decor has to be a mix of personal taste  and functionality, especially when it comes to little kids. It was important to choose furniture that would keep her toys and books well organized  but also visible and accessible to her. 

Project Details

Bookracks are from Potterybarnkids. 

Kitchen: Is from target, it's a great size pretends play kitchen that will grow with the kids. It also has a lot of space for extra storage. I like the fact that it's double function furniture. 

Toy organizer, table and chairs are from Costco. 


I love the little animals hooks to hang Jackets. 

DIY Wall shelves with baskets:

Mirror: Ikea too.

I used kids mushed laundry basket to store all her soft toys and stuffed animals so she can see them and grab them:

Little magnet to hang her art works and pictures :

Wall decals :



Favorite Items

The caricature we had done together at the Zoo. Priceless. 


Make sure to leave some space between furniture while designing your playroom. Kids love to play on the floor.
