*There’s a giveaway at the bottom of this post for one of my favorite items in this room.
I thought I’d kick off the home tour with a really fun room that is fun for the whole family.
The playroom is located around the corner once you get to the top of the stairs. We designed it on the plans like an upstairs den. It has three full walls, and the missing wall is open to the hallway that leads to the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms.
We love that it’s an easy place for all of us to sit and hang out while the boys play, and someday when they don’t really play with toys anymore, it can be a place for them to sit and watch TV or play video games (do they really have to grow up and do that someday? ha!) and hang out with their friends. I love that it’s not closed off and feels open and bright.
The boys and I cleaned it up so we could take some pictures of it last week. It gets cleaned up every night before bed, but during the day you can imagine what it looks like.
This storage system from Land of Nod was the only new thing we got for this room. It is the perfect solution to tiny toys, books, movies, and really helps us stay organized.
The polka dot rug was in the nursery at the old house and I love that we got to find a new home for it at the new house. And Truffles the dog was a baby present for Hudson when he was born.
If you’ve been reading for a while, you remember this monkey from Hudson’s monthly updates. And the Happy Land pillow may be my favorite thing in the world! I got the pillow last summer when my mom and I were at market and I couldn’t wait to put it in the new playroom.
Sweet little Fiona is my shadow, so it’s remarkable she only made it into one photo!
The sofa was the very first piece of furniture we bought for our old house. It lived in our living room for five years and we moved it up to the playroom when we moved in here. It will probably need to be recovered someday, but it is so comfy. And it’s my favorite nap spot!
The green glider was in the nursery at the old house, too. I like that we were able to have enough seating in the playroom for when we have play dates and a few parents are hanging out in this room.
