Mood Board: Lyndall’s Playroom

Back with another mood board today! Get your own personalized mood board here 🙂

A few weeks ago we shared Lyndall’s Living Space, and today we’re working on her son’s adjacent playroom space. Here’s what Lyndall had to say:

This room is an extension of our living room and is a bay window nook with windows on nearly every wall making it an unusual space and difficult to decorate. We need to turn this space into a play area for Jaiken with lots of storage for toys as his things are starting to take over!! This room is visible from the front door so needs to look cohesive with the rest of our home’s décor without looking too boring for him. We were looking at getting custom window seats installed under the bay windows with drawers for storage but the quotes came back over $5k so was too expensive. I also need help working out the best layout for furniture/storage so I can maximise this space.

I am looking for this space to store toys, allow Jaiken an area to play and be creative/imaginative, and for the space to be able to adapt as Jaiken gets older and to share with other children/siblings when they come along.

I want this space to be a happy, bright nook for Jaiken to play, read and imagine.

– A set of kids table and chairs or a special chair/lounge/tent for him
– Place to display artwork/drawings/photos
– Toy storage
– Rug on the floor
– Artwork on the walls
– Toys that can be used as decoration as well as being fun for Jaiken
– Space for play kitchen and dress ups

And here’s what I came up with!

Custom Mood Boards |

Note: As some of you may have noticed, I did not include links to the products within the mood board. Unfortunately, I’ve made the choice, based on several reasons, to no longer provide them here on the blog. As much as I’d love to, providing links a second time is extremely time consuming. HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean you won’t have access to sources! I create Pinterest boards specific to each and every mood board that I create. You can simply hop on over and scroll to find any product you may be interested in! Here’s the direct link to Lyndall’s Playroom!

    Thanks for sharing. What a lovely space. I, too, think I may be adopting the ‘pin board for every space’ as it is very time consuming. I used Olioboard for the longest time, but now even their ‘olioboard it’ feature isn’t working properly.

    Great choice of colors and products.

    Love your blog! I had been out of town and was just checking your posts. Love you mood board for this playroom! Just one question – where can i find the drawers (#5)? They seem to be just what I have been looking for my daughters room.

    Looks like this mood board’s details are no longer on Pinterest. Is that correct? Do you have the product sources listed somewhere else? Thanks!
