Playroom Inspiration

Ugh I've been thinking about this playroom since January y'all! Now I have less than a month until Edward turns 1 and a family room that is overrun with toys and it's time to make some moves.  The problem: I would like the room to look like one of the rooms above, which is probs not happenin'.  Sigh...

This was my original moodboard.

I still like it, but I'm too lazy to paint the walls, which are currently a pale blue color from Restoration Hardware.  I also think I need to bring in more bright colors, since it is Edward's playroom and not my own personal sanctuary.

Me and Katy B. in her awesome playroom circa 1983! 

The good news: Kip and I moved all of the stuff out of there this weekend so I pretty much have a blank canvas.  I'll be interested to see how it comes together.  Of course, I'll share it with y'all when it's up to par, which may be next year ;)


  1. I'm so jealous you just have a room for toys that is not your living room. I dream of a walk-in utility room and a playroom...and a garage...and a walk-in pantry...

  2. These are some super darling rooms! I have not been able to banish toys from the family room because it's right next to the kitchen, which is where we all hang out. Oh well, I figure that when my daughter is a teen she's not going to have her toys all over the floor anymore.... :)

  3. That will be so much fun starting with a blank slate! Can't wait to see, even if it is next year :)

  4. So exciting...can't wait to see what you do!! Love the first playroom ~

  5. Where were all these beautiful play rooms when I was a kid? I loooovvee your moodboard! Can't wait to see how it turns out! Lots of pics please!

  6. A blank canvas is the best way to fun and I cannot wait to see what you do! I LOVE your moodboard, that wallpaper..swoon! All of it is stunning, great inspiration..happy planning.
