Jaxon’s Cheerful Playroom


I wanted to create a space for Jaxon to play and let his imagination run wild. {Secretly I wanted my living room back too..} We're expecting our 2nd son this November so this will be a room that they both can play in. I love how it turned out and that I was able to mix and match the patterns and colors throughout many different things to tie the whole room together.

Design Inspiration

The different fabric patterns and bright, bold colors inspired the whole feel of the room. Once I found the fabric, everything else just fell into place. I knew I didn't want the room to be too grown up, I wanted it to look like a playroom where our kids could play and have fun! I tried to think of things that I would have loved if I had a playroom back when I was a kid. From the chalkboard wall to the little book nook under the giant leaf, I wanted Jax to think this was the coolest room to create memories in.

Decorating Style

My decorating style is modern and playful.

Project Details

Most of our things came from IKEA.We found a lot of great things that went perfectly with our vision (circus canopy tent, giant leaf, storage and bins, light fixtures, shelving, wire for artwork, numbered storage bins and red buckets above chalkboard). Some of the artwork I created myself. I made the bunting banner out of fabric I bought on sale at Hobby Lobby and found a pattern online. The bench is 3 expedite single units pushed together since we couldn't fit a large one in that space. The seat is a piece of wood with foam on top (from Joann Fabrics) all covered in matching fabric. The fabric is stapled around the foam into the wood. I was really happy how it turned out. The other DIY was the 16x20 canvas I bought at Michaels and covered in fabric. I spray painted letters and numbers from Hobby Lobby and hot glued them on. Lastly, I bought the letters PLAY from Hobby Lobby and modge podged scrap book paper onto the them to carry out the colors and patterns.
