Playroom on the Main Level
The playroom is finally done! I had a vision for this little space from the moment I saw it. The day we came to see the house, I saw this room and immediately imagined it as a playroom and I saw our babies playing here. Isn’t it crazy where our imagination can take us? Fast forward two months later and we are living here and this room I saw, became their playroom IRL.
This room was suppose to be our office but we gave it up so we can have a playroom on the main level — the other option was upstairs in the Bonus room or the Basement. But, since we have little ones that aren’t great with the stairs yet I preferred to have it on the main level where it is easier for me to keep an eye on them while they play. In about three years or so we will most likely move it upstairs to the Bonus room.
Decorating the Playroom
This space is right off our entryway so I didn’t want to go too juvenile but I also wanted to make sure it still felt different than the rest of the house – and playful.
I love a colorful playroom but I cannot do obnoxious colors so we kept it more to a pastel tone throughout.
And because this is a playroom we needed a lot of storage for toys so I had the idea of doing the entire wall of storage cubes and it worked out perfectly. I was able to fit in three six cube storage units in here.
We also have a huge closet in here where we store extra books, games and puzzles as well as all of our Homeschool things.
We used White Dove by Benjamin Moore for the walls and the ceiling is ultra pure white.
Most of you know I love my essential oils, so this cute Owl diffuser was a must have in the playroom. We diffuse oils daily in here and some of my favorite for the playroom include KidPower, Peace & Calming, Lavender and Geneyus.

We have five kids — oldest being seven, Vasilije and second oldest being five, Mateja. They prefer to play in the Basement, where they have “bigger” toys. So the playroom was more catered to the girls, three year old Anastasija and sixteen month old Aleksandra.
Eventually, I plan on creating a big kid space in the Bonus room where I can add some real seating for them and a bigger reading corner. A space the bigger kids can enjoy more. But, because home takes time and we have only been here for a month and a half, I am taking it slow and doing everything as time permits.

All of our books were random purchases from all over. All of our Serbian books were purchased while we visited Serbia, but you can order Serbian books from here.
I am so happy with how this space turned out, and even though it may not be as neutral as the rest of the house I love seeing it in color. It makes me even happier when I see them play in here.
