When the decision was made to convert our bonus room (before pictures found here) into a playroom for Harper, I immediately did what all rational people do... I headed over to Pinterest in search of inspiration! Since I really didn't know what direction I intended to go with the room, I browsed various playrooms until I could get a good grasp of what I was looking for. After coming across hundreds, if not thousands, of different rooms, I finally came up with some ideas for the space I was hoping to create. Below are some of my favorite spaces and how I plan to incorporate them into Harper's playroom.
A Sitting Area
After coming across Lay Baby Lay's daughter's playroom, I knew without a doubt I wanted to include a couch in Harper's playroom. It would serve as a great place for us to hang out as a family and watch Disney movies, curl up with a good children's book, or just a place for us mama's to sit as we host play dates with our friends.
Who doesn't love a teepee?! After seeing these cuties all over the internet there isn't a doubt in my mind that Harper needs one in her room. I want her to have a comfy spot she can crawl in with a good book or even take a nap in after a long day of playing.
Speaking of curling up with a book, I love the idea of using Ikea's ribba ledges to display books. Harper absolutely loves books and to be able to display them for her enjoyment makes me giddy. I think it'll be so much fun to display books for the seasons. Too bad this is her Christmas present so I won't be able to display her 25 books of Christmas this year! Boo :(
A Craft Space
Even though Harper is just now getting interested in markers, crayons, etc. I want to go on and include a table where she can sit and color in the near future. I also love the idea of hanging a chalkboard on the wall for her to doodle on as well as adding a place to hang her artwork so that everyone can see it!
A Play Kitchen
You might not remember that back in the summer Kevin and I picked up a Kidkraft retro kitchen for Harper for a steal. I randomly ran across a brand spanking new one on Craigslist and only ended up giving $75 for it. It was intended to be a Christmas gift for Harp but she saw it in the garage and so she got it much earlier that we'd planned. My plan is to move it upstairs to her playroom right before Christmas. Her kitchen area won't be in the closet like this one but I definitely love this little area.
A Play Market
I absolutely adore this little children's market. Harper absolutely loves her play kitchen and all the things that go in it. If we have the space, I would love to create her a mini children's market complete with a chalkboard sign and a cash register (;
A Dress Up Space
Harper is still too young for a dress up space but isn't this one just darling?! I definitely foresee us adding this little nook in the room as she gets older!
Well that's all the inspiration I have to share today! Check back next week for my two favorite playroom spaces and their color schemes!
