A Colorful Kids’ Playroom

Updated: Sep 12

Today I want to share with you a recently completed playroom project for one of my very favorite clients.

I have been working with the Goldstein’s now for about 4 years on several different projects in their home.

We started out years ago with their family room and sunroom, and over the years have completed their dining room, sitting room, library, master bedroom and toddler bedroom.

Our most recent project is the kids’ playroom.

The Goldstein’s are a wonderful blended family of 10 with 5 children still living at home; ages 14 years old to 3 months old. They wanted a space that was all about the kids, that would be fun, safe, functional and suitable for all their ages – teenager to infant.

The large game room on the second level was the obvious choice to transform into a fun kids’ playroom.

We were starting from scratch with this room – All new paint, furniture, storage, art and accessories. The only keepers were the existing red patterned custom drapery panels and large TV and equipment. The red draperies were the inspiration for the room’s color palette.

The Plan


We brought in a sectional from West Elm that we scored a great deal on, A large wall unit from Ikea with plenty of storage and room for the large TV and equipment, two swivel chairs also from Ikea, a kid’s play table and chairs from Land of Nod, an end table from Ikea, and a custom coffee table that I designed and had made by my carpenter. The coffee table had to be large enough to accommodate a train set.

The Before

Ready for it?

The room was very cluttered with toys everywhere due to the lack of storage. Brace yourselves 🙂


The Color Palette

The color inspiration came from the existing  red custom drapery panels that they had made about five years ago. The draperies were still quite beautiful and in very good condition. I had my seamstress modify them slightly so they would look a bit fuller. I decided to go with really saturated colors – leaning towards primary colors in green, yellow, red and blue. I also brought in a bit of black and white to help balance out all the color in the room.The wall color is also a neutral pale gray green (Sherwin Williams Useful Gray). I kept the sectional and wall unit neutral as well, since they are the two largest pieces in the room.

The Finished Play Room

Here is the new space……

Here are different views of the space. These photos were taken with my iPad, but will have professional photos done soon




The Piece de Resistance

Every room needs art to make it complete. My clients love original art. In fact we only use original art in their home. What better way to add a unique and personal touch than having the kiddos paint the art for the room using acrylic paints in the room’s color scheme. I then selected six, and framed them in picture frames from Ikea. I think my little Picassos did an amazing job! Don’t you? 🙂

There it is!

The install went well and my clients (including the kiddos) love the room and are very happy with it! That makes me happy 🙂

Could you handle this much color in a room? Leave me a comment below

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Be Inspired!
