Playroom Design Board

A sweet friend of mine is having a baby girl this summer, which makes 3, so a gender neutral playroom is in order for their family. We all want a space where our kids can retreat to make a mess to their little heart's content. This new space will be in what was the dining room, which opens up to the main hallway. We knew organization and tidiness was in order to hide the clutter and millions of toys. Here's what we brainstormed together on the premise of using primary colors. 

We had a successful IKEA trip the other day where we picked up most of the items except the Expedit which they were out of. The new high gloss gray is a nice alternative to the white I usually gravitate towards.

The chevron rug was 60% off over the weekend (score) so it should arrive in the next week, and the room is being painted Friday. We hope to make some progress over the weekend and next week. I'll of course share the progress with you.

This is a race against the baby clock- K arrives in 8 weeks or less and Mama will need a place for the boys to escape to for her sanity!
