Jake Martin’s Play Room


Turning the dining room into a playroom....not yet finished.

Design Inspiration

I found the fabric for the curtains and already had the Serena & Lily chair cushions, so we just went from that.

Decorating Style

fun and playful 

Project Details

Made own curtains, turned an old ugly print into a chalkboard, painted an easel from ikea and used inexpensive bookshelves with doors from ikea.  I'm still trying to decide on what to do for the chandelier....I welcome any suggestions! :)

Favorite Items

The curtains & the canvas on my little guy....I just love the star fabric, and I added red ribbon to them for the trim.


make it kid friendly yet cute & stylish

Where did you find your star fabric?  I LOVE it and have to have curtains of my own like that!!  Thanks.

What a pristine-looking room! I absolutely love the all-white walls and shelves! It surely highlights the toys and all the other colored objects.

I agree with hawahawa. The room's bright and it looks very clean and neat and unassuming. It certainly is a good way to be different, with most playrooms and nurseries nowadays painted with whatever color combo available.

What I like most about this room is that you painted your walls white and not any playful color available. You also have a huge window where the sunlight can enter. In effect, the room's really bright and sunny, and it surely makes playtime more fun.
