Quick Playroom Update & Happy Weekend

Happy weekend!  I just popped in to share a quick, impromptu project that I undertook yesterday morning.  My three year old has been coming home with artwork GALORE this year.  Which can range from one line drawn on white paper with a crayon to gorgeous and cool Jackson Pollack-esque paintings.  I had a huge stockpile of this artwork and didn’t know what to do with it.  Here’s what my cutie-pie and I came up with (sorry about the iPhone pics):

Before (usual state of the play room, keeping it reals, people!):

After:

I have plenty of room to expand — three more walls to be exact!  Happy weekend!

Playroom Perfection

kwplayroom

Ever since I laid my eyes on this divine playroom in this month’s issue of Cookie Magazine, I can’t stop thinking about its perfection.  The playroom is enjoyed by the children of the one-and-only Miz Kelly Wearstler.

My favorite part about the space is that it is so tastefully designed that it can easily be transformed into an adult library by simply changing the books and adding some seating.  Wouldn’t you love this room for yourself?  With a beautiful overstuffed chaise and all of your favorite, beautiful hard-backed books surrounding you?

The wall color, chandelier (I DIE!), simple window treatments, unique low desk/coffee table, neutral rug and gorgeous shallow built-ins are so simple, versatile and functional.  The neutral background provides a lovely canvas for the bookcovers, which provide the artwork and color for the room.

LOVE.  LOVE.  LOVE.
