Fact: I’m not an interior designer/decorator. I often get compliments on my home’s decor and am proud of our space but the process to get to that point is always a long, stressful one. I’m very visual and very indecisive. I’m notorious for buying a ton of options, seeing them in the space at hand, and then taking it all back. That said, I am so excited about this room for a couple different reasons. The first reason is that it has easily become the prettiest spot in our home and my girls’ favorite, which totally works out for me since it’s upstairs and they can
leave me alone play up there quietly. The second reason is because 90% of its contents were ordered online, which means I wasn’t able to see it all in the space before committing to it. Y’all, that means that I had a vision and it came out almost-exactly how I had planned! Seriously a milestone for me. Because this dream playroom makeover was a total overhaul and I want to show you all of it, I decided to break the reveal into two parts. Today I’m sharing Part 1.
Before we get into the “After,” you have to see the “Before” for true appreciation. In full-disclosure, the room was a hot mess that used to half be an office and catch-all space. Now that my girls and I are home more often, I wanted a room dedicated to them, which meant all of the junk and unnecessary furniture had to go.
This room is divided into two halves, if you will. I envisioned the space as being a home for my girls. The half closest to the door (Part 2) is the “inside” of the home. The far half is the “outside” complete with a magic garden and Land of Fairy Tales. Without further ado, here it is.
These adorable furniture pieces are all part of the Magic Garden collection from Fantasy Fields by Teamson. I love the toy organizer with storage bins because it’s super cute and is a good way to organize and display their toys. The standing mirror was absolutely a must-have for us. My girls love playing dress-up so the mirror paired with the adorable dress-up storage with 4 hangers next to it were no-brainers. The 3-drawer cubby under the window is a perfect fit and is holding more of the girls’ toys and some of their dress-up accessories like shoes and purses. I mean, how cute is this stuff?
Land of Fairy Tales
This teepee* was the perfect addition for “camping” in the “garden” and it was less than $100! I completed it with these adorable floor pillows from Floor Bloom. I absolutely love how big, soft, comfy, and vibrant they are! The colors mesh perfectly with the Magic Garden furniture. My daughters are seriously obsessed with their Floor Bloom pillows and they are often pulled out of the teepee* and played with in the middle of the floor. We love them. This space has already become a little book-nook for them as well as a fun hiding place. The giggles that come from this corner are the stuff memories are made of.
