Sage Green & Neutral Superhero Playroom


We live in small home and as my little boy got older, we wanted a dedicated space for him to play. I'm a lover of neutrals but also love a single pop of color, so I designed this playroom with that in mind. It's a small room so I focused on incorporating wall textures that packed a punch to add interest but not clutter the floor of the small room.

My husband is a first responder so I designed the room with a unique superhero theme, ranging from the large marvel prints, to the wood wall cutout "the world needs who you were made to be", to the floating shelves styled with with classic mystery books and a fairytale canvas. To brighten up the room and give it a touch of sophistication, I incorporated small pops of warm wood texture, neutral grays, and warm whites.

I designed several features throughout the room to make it extra fun for him: 1) We transformed the closet space into a whimsical, fun sitting nook using Livette's wallpaper and a DIY built in basket space underneath for toy storage. 2) We created a modern asymmetrical feature wall using primed MDF 1x2 board cut at 45 degree angles (paint color is SW 6213). 3) I designed a matching book wall with shelves my husband built. 4) We purchase the IKEA duktig kitchen and I gave it a makeover to coordinate with the room.

Overall, this was one of my favorite design project to date! I kept the large toys neutral so that they'll work for any future kiddos we might have and I can easily repaint the feature wall or switch out the large prints for a completely new and gender neutral feel. Best of all, our little boy loves his playroom and it's the highlight of his day everyday right now.
