Good morning! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I’m trying to get back into the swing of things here. Today I’m sharing another room from the Montgomery House with you. For those of you that may be new here, this house was one of my first ever professional projects. I finished the downstairs back in April and then shared it on the blog in a series of posts (find those here) and just recently I went back to finish the upstairs, which includes a large playroom.
This space needed to function as not only a fun place for the family’s little guy, but also provide storage for all the fun stuff, and give a comfortable spot for the grownups to hang out as well.
You might recognize those big letters? We bought them from the same vendor in Round Top where I found the “Home” letters in my living room last spring.
They already had the couch but we got a new slipcover for it and added in lots of new pattern and texture with pillows and throws.
And how cute is this rocking chair? My client found this and it was a big inspiration for the entire room- kind of a modern take on an old classic. Those stripes and that beautiful buttery leather would look amazing with just about anything!
On the opposite wall, I created a little hideout/stage area from curtains hanging from the ceiling that you can see to the left here. Behind that are a few bigger toys that can still be accessed but then also stored out of sight. We used the train table as sort of a “coffee” table.
These are my favorite Ikea Kallax shelves– I love using them in kids’ spaces. They’re perfect storage-books on top and bins full of toys on the bottom.
And how adorable is this little vintage table and chairs they already had? Perfect for a little guy and all his art supplies.
This room was so much fun- lots of color, pattern, & texture- plus working with such a sweet and fun family- it’s totally the best! Paul and I had a blast hanging out and taking these pictures. Next week I’ll share with you the rest of the upstairs- a guest room and bathroom.
Also, I’ve got Christmas on the brain… how about you? I’m excited to share with you some pictures and thoughts about all of that- coming soon.
As always, thanks so much for reading!
