Siena’s Parisian Playroom was inspired by our love for the City of Light. I designed the room around Anewall’s Parisian Street Mural Wallpaper, and then commissioned a local Austin artist, Susie Stokes Gibson, to create a Paris-themed mural. My husband, a woodworker, created a custom cubby design for toy storage. The room has a calming, neutral palette with pops of pink and a French whimsical vibe- We love spending time playing in this room!
This basement playroom project started off with a completely blank canvas; the ask was to create a cozy, comfortable, colourful & functional space for a very busy toddler! I wanted this playroom to feel bold and adventurous yet soft enough to work with the rest of the home. So we opted for a wonderful muted jungle wallpaper and an oversized muted geometric area rug to ground the space. These elements inspired a blue, green and yellow colour palette which we layered with interesting shapes, patterns and textures for an elevated feel.
Playrooms always need a solid organizational systems, one that’s easy to stick to! So we made sure to integrate both open and closed storage for this family — the closed cabinetry is perfect for art supplies, puzzles and toy collections divided into clear bins, while the open shelf encourages autonomous play with easy-to-access toys on rotation. Creating designated purposeful areas is probably the single most important aspect of any playroom design.
My clients already had a great dining table, so we used it to create an arts & crafts zone with beautiful soft green chairs. These are my favourite ones to use in kid’s spaces because they are wipeable, have a closed back and are light enough for kids to move around themselves.
To promote imaginative play we added a fun kid’s play couch, a canvas playhouse with the sweetest little windows and a wooden climber. A low coffee table is the perfect spot to play with building blocks, puzzles and trucks! Fun decorative touches bring so much personality to the room, like knotted floor cushions, pom pom bins, a flag bunting and wool wall hangings. The end result is a colourful fun-filled playroom with endless layers of fun to explore!

My little one loves animals so much so we decided to start a little family project to create a fun jungle themed playroom for her. Her older brother and sister both helped pick out items and shared their ideas to help make it the prefect fun and inviting playroom for her.
A modern Spanish twist on a sweet playroom. This space has seating for seven, storage for tons of toys, an art station with supply storage built-in, and a lot of color!
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 1×2 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.
