We have this little tucked away loft area on the second floor. We decided at this stage in our life, with two boys under 5, to make it a playroom and a great place to read books with the kids. We already had a sofa that fit nicely in the loft. To truly turn it into a playroom we needed some kid-sized furniture, a place to stash books, and some smart toy storage.
The loft does not get a lot of natural light. Other than the dark grey soft, the plan is to keep everything else white or light colored. I also want to add mirrors above the sofa to help reflect the small amount of natural light that does make it into the room. In the winter the loft offers a change of scenery within the home. Certain toys, like the wooden tracks and cars, live in the loft. This way it is getting used on a regular basis when the boys want to play with certain things.
I am so excited to decorate a playroom. I think it is a place where I can let loose a little and have some fun. We want the space to be inviting, playful, and cozy. I want to do a lot of DIY art for this space and include family photos.
