Modern Playroom Seating & Decor

Friday, November 3, 2017

For years, I said  I wasn't going to let my kid take over my living room and here we are and yes my kid has taken over my living room. Thank god we still have a formal living room, where if I want to feel like an adult, I can head on over sit in my great chairs from REEVES ANTIQUES {online @1st Dibs, Brick & Mortar} and drink a martini. BUT most of the time we spend in the living room playing on the floor.

The compromise... If you have to turn your living area into a mixed space/playroom then keep the playroom seating modern and neutral to match your living room furniture. You really can't control the wild colors of the toys but you can find places to store them and out of sight, out of mind.

My living room is a mix of grey, white, beige, tan and brown. We have continued with this color scheme when choosing our kid decor items that go into our living room/playroom. 


You are most likely going to be seated on these items too, so all of these options are good for you and baby to grow into.

We personally have a fuzzy soft bean bag from Target in cream {comes in 4 colors}. It was an impulse buy on a Target run and I have never been happier!

But I recently found these bad ass chairs on etsy, PILLOWSBYELISSA {also has great pillows obviously} that I have been loving and might add one of these chairs to the mix instead of an additional bean bag. I never like to be too matchy matchy anyways. These Boho Loungers are not kid specific, they would look dope in any room of your house.

We choose the Skip Hop Chevron play-mat. You can change the pattern, make the area larger or smaller and its very versatile. Anders (my 11 month old) in particular likes to pull the mat apart and play with the edges. So much so, that when we recently went to California and Houston on a two week trip, I packed two of the edge pieces to play with.

I am a big fan of Skip Hop for baby stuff, all reasonably priced items that are attractive and blend into your household instead of being a bun of crazy bright prime color eye sore.

Lula Play Rug from RuggishCo {$199}, like this because it is all one piece and then is reversible with interactive map on backside.
Pebble Lily-Pad {$120}, smaller but plush and easy to move anywhere in the house.
