I recently had the pleasure of getting to work on a playroom design for a young family from soup to nuts.  My clients had recently added built-ins and beautiful wainscoting to an "office" that was adjacent to their living room.  They have a young son and are...

I've been helping some good friends who recently bought a new home with several spaces in their house.  One space that is coming near to completion is their playroom and so I thought I'd share a few of the elements of the space with you.  Here's the design...

Let's start with what they already have.  They have two beautiful wooden, antique twin beds with great, simple white bedding.  They have a great campaign dresser that they had lacquered in a really pretty navy blue.  The beds and the dresser are laid out as they ar...

When we got our new playroom set up, we brought in a large shelving unit from our living room to house the television and toys.  I have found that by displaying the toys openly on the shelves, rather than sitting a basket on each shelf to disguise the toys, my children...

About a year ago (gosh, how time flies!) I posted about how we were thinking about trading in our formal dining room and instead turn it into a playroom for our kiddos.  It was a really big decision for me because I hated the idea of a) giving up a formal dining room a...

I'm working on a room for two girls to share at a beach house so I put together this mood board for my client to get a sense of what direction we are going in.  I want the room to have a coastal vibe without beating you over the head with beach, you know?  I also want...
