The room with the most fun!

We are now onto the second room reveal for our Palm Springs inspired house, Palma Soleada.  The first room reveal, our Master Bedroom, was a huge hit and I have no doubt that this next reveal will receive the same overwhelming feedback!

What room is it you ask?

Well, of course, it’s the play room!  The place where Ari and Chloe spend the most of their time.  So much mischief making and cheeky plotting happens in this room.

As with the Master Bedroom, we worked with Katrina from De Vere Design Co, who is a complete wizard at interior design, conception and styling.

Here’s a note from Katrina….
When planning the playroom we had such a lovely large space to work with!  It can be quite a daunting task taking a large space and creating a sense of comfort in a play room. So we zoned the room , creating little play pockets around specific types of play that were also interchangeable with other areas in the room.  We began with a very natural pallet of white and rattan, and then layered upon that with pops of soft colours and loads of texture in our cushions and floor rug.  We worked with current interests the kids have like dressing up, playing Mum’s and Dad’s, reading, and of course open space to still make a beautiful mess in.  What I love most about this space is that Natalie and Ryan can also relax in here with the kids, there is loads of space to unwind and enjoy each others company.
