It has been a while since we styled a playroom. And this one is quite a special one as it’s more of a playground. It is one of the rooms that we designed for the villa on Zaya Nurai Island, a large and beautiful open space with natural light and an arched entrance. Kids with the ages between 0 to 11 will be playing here so we could not wait to get started.

For the back wall we chose a stunning string cabinet from String Furniture. This side of the room can be used for homework or storage. The EcoBirdy chairs and the wooden Ikea stools can be pulled up to the desk too, or can be used at the white table. Mix and match works very well in this area with all these subtle neutral tones.

The enchanting Zoe Rumeau lights above the  custom made storage cabinet we designed ourselves spells PLAY… just in case a reminder is needed what the space is intended for.

On the floor you we placed a large cream colored Berber rug to keep tiny feet warm and comfortable. It softens the grey and white tones tones and adds a classic touch to this space. Another nice soft touch is the Anne Claire Petit plant. No watering required!

The space is finished with adding the Nest bean bag and storage tables. All are very swanky and inviting pieces making them desirable items when it comes to styling play rooms.

We always love to share our projects here on the blog and we do it with the purpose of inspiring you to get creative as well.

For the Jotun Kids Collection 2018 we were asked to take care of the Art Direction and styling. It was a dream come true!  With lots of beautiful products and some fun and enthusiastic kids we saw everything come together. You can see the final result in the Jotun brochure and on our blog.

Two boys, one room…. that is something we can relate to. We had so much fun designing the space for these little boys.  Creating a stylish space enjoyable for sleeping, chilling and having fun with friends. We made comfort one of our top priorities for the design of this room.

Our starting point was the Jungle wall paper from Bien Fait. It’s an old time favourite and one you might have seen before in nurseries, playrooms and in a shared bedroom. It makes a statement doesn’t it?

The two identical Kalon Studio beds on one side of the room are complemented with bedding in contrasting colors. We still can’t get enough of the teal blue, green and mustard combo… Can you?
Teal blue is in any case a theme color for this room. The opposite wall has been painted with Jotun Fusion 5362, speaking of statement walls. On top of that, we chose a teal blue Bemz sofa cover which we think is such a fantastic way to upgrade your IKEA sofa to reflect your own personal style. This area has ‘chilling’ written all over it.

A product that was on our wish list and is now decorating the wall behind the couch is the Anne Claire Petit big lobster. The color, the craftsmanship, the material… I guess a new favorite.

A combination of Piet Hein Eek design by IKEA and a white round table gives the boys space to be creative. Whatever they do in this room, we just know that there will be many laughs and big stories.

Did you have a chance to look at our latest post about  photoshoot of the Jotun Kids Collection 2018 (a.k.a. our dream job of Art Direction and styling)?

For this collection, Jotun created three themes based on Children’s imaginative stories. The eight colors of each theme form a beautiful pallet which was the starting point for our designs. We created nine settings and want to share our favourites with you.
You can find the end result in the Jotun brochure and on our blog.

Perhaps it will inspire you to get creative too…
