This Mer Mag project combines two awesome things about summer: outdoor play and more time for reading together. It's a perfect spot to get out of the sun and enjoy story time. It looks pretty adorable lit up at night too.
I'm still struggling with our playroom. We bought a modular storage system that I thought would look great in there, but it's the first purchase for our new home that I really regret. It looks cheap and it wasn't. Eventually, it's going on Craigslist. In the meantime, I'm still collecting ideas and inspiration. This playroom is on the opposite end of the spectrum from my usual minimalist style, but I love the bohemian feel. There's a lot going on, but it doesn't feel overwhelming.

5) Miffy, my favorite bunny of all:
This might be the coolest use of an attic space I've ever seen. It has everything: sleeping space, play area, desk for studying. And it's all so bright and happy.
I adore MiniWilla posters. While I was trying to track down a stockist in the US, I discovered Sandra (one-half of the design duo team behind the brand) and her Instagram account. Hope you enjoy these shots of her family, her home, and her awesome products:
For all you crafty people, this DIY project doesn't look too hard, and it's a big payoff in the end.
Today I'm searching Pinterest, Houzz, and catalogs for playroom ideas, but I'm not finding much inspiration. This has definitely been the toughest room for me to design. My biggest hang up is storage. We stick to a minimalist philosophy when it comes to toys, but we still need to store and display what we have. I want a combination of closed and open storage. I want something that makes it easy for a little person to find a toy and then put it away when done. I want it to look nice. Nothing that I can find is exactly right. If I had to pick my favorite playroom out of all the images floating around out there, it would be this one. It's still not quite what I want, though. I'll update you if I have a breakthrough.
I love playrooms. We have space for one in our home, but I haven't done a thing with it. This room provides some inspiration and motivation to make it happen.
