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 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.

Neutral Wildflower Playspace

Adding a wall full of wildflowers to inspire play and creativity was the reasoning behind adding this feature wall in our playspace. The taupe colour of the wildflowers is both neutral and airy, allowing for visual interest that doesn’t overwhelm the area. Livette’s Removable Wallpaper was simple to install and the quality is second to none. Suddenly, I find myself wanting to add wallpaper to all the rooms in our home.

Arts & Crafts Colorful Playroom

About a year ago we moved my hubby’s home office to the basement and dedicated his old office to house Lily’s growing collection of toys. I wanted to design it right away but life, work, and all the things got in the way. One year later it is finally done! Check out Lily’s brand new arts and crafts themed playroom!

Hoopstar Playroom

I chose this project because a ton of our kiddos are schooling virtually and so much of how they perform depends on environment.  I love that this playroom is dual functioning with a desk area for today’s virtual learning and a bean-bag lounge area for breaks.  This project is inspired by my client’s love for basketball so it’s a locker room theme.  When designing a playroom my advice would be storage, storage, and more storage!!  The lockers were a Facebook marketplace fine with a DIY repaint.  They tie in the locker room theme, but also give great storage!

Playroom Reveal

This room grants me a lot of free time to work, be in the kitchen, and gives me lots of mental peace that its able to contain MOST of the toys. Keeping the surrounding rooms from being overrun by toys is definitely a challenge! I am happy that our home and layout allowed us to have a designated play space that is separate from other rooms. The main goal for every playroom is to provide lots of storage, playfulness and fun. Since I wanted the theme to be a mix of adventure, travel and planet Earth I still wanted the look to be somewhat cohesive with the rest of the house.

Bright & Colourful Playroom with Mastermind Toys

It’s finally time to reveal the corporate playroom i’ve been working on for several months. Mastermind Toys, Canada’s largest specialty toy and children’s book retailer, wanted to transform an unused room at their HQ office into an inspiring space. It needed to be fun, bright and full of wonder… and I was up for the challenge! I was asked to create an environment that could serve many purposes. One to host vendors and suppliers, to hold internal meetings and workshops, as well as to capture all of their social and marking content. I had two large set walls built in order to create some pretty iconic and special moments and even transformed a small office space into a full photography studio, perfect for capturing product unboxing videos and storing photography gear. We were so lucky to have such wonderful partners join in to help bring this space to life; floor knot cushions from Juju & Jake, storage bins, rugs and bedding from Pehr, wall decals from Urban Walls, a reversible floor mat from Play with Pieces, wall decor and a bean bag from Gautier Studio, a slide from Catchu Boutique and wallpaper from Chasing Paper. The pièce de résistance is definitely the 5-foot custom neon sign from Neonific that really lights up the room with a playful and bold aesthetic. I am so proud of this incredible playroom that brings a sense of imagination and a twinkle to everyone’s eyes…
