Interior Designer Yvonne McEachron Shares 5 Ways to Make Your Kids’ Playroom a Space You’ll Love as Much as They Do

1. Play with Patterns 

When mixing patterns, work within a similar color palette for cohesiveness. Here, we chose to pattern play with the window treatments, the wall mural and the area rug. When mixing patterns, have fun and get creative. Nothing is off limits.

2. Hide All the Clutter 

I’m a proponent of closed storage. It offers clients a home for toys and books and helps to keep a space from looking cluttered and disorganized. To help keep things organized, label the inside of each door.

3. Treat Your Windows 

Make a statement with a bold pattern on your windows. In order to not compete with the colors in this room, we opted for a geometric pattern in a neutral palette. For a modern, clean vibe, we went with roman shades instead of curtains.

4. Wow with a Wall Mural 

Statement walls can come in the form of wallpaper, a bold paint color or a mural. Wall murals are a playful way to add interest to a space. I like to incorporate a wall mural particularly when working on a child’s bedroom or playroom.

5. Designate Special Spaces 

When working with a multifunctional playroom, it’s important to separate the space thoughtfully. We set up the art corner, the toy table and the lounge area separately. The placement of the furnishings offers a relaxed flow to the room.
