when you enter our home, you basically walk into a big open space that is our staircase, living room, and dining room. this space is definitely where we do a lot of our living, but it is far from formal.
eventually, our living room became a designated playroom.
that was 5 years ago, and it’s changed a lot over the last 5 years.
it’s still the PLAY room, but it is really so much more than that.
it’s a place to sit, love, and create.
in the corner, near the front door, i set up a little workstation for myself. it’s a nice place to keep my laptop and be able to have it out of the way of everything else that is going on in the house.
the craft table is now in a nice open location with plenty of room to move around it and add more seats if needed. it is also where the kids eat their snack and do their homework after school.
although toys are not spread all over the floor like they used to be when the kids were younger, this is still the place they play…as in video games.
it is also a space where they snuggle up and read or watch cartoons in the morning.
our dining room is our only eating space where all four of us can sit together, so it is far from formal.
the sofa area is so cozy now.
this space has always been one of my favorite spaces in the house, but i really love this version of the playroom.
yes, that is the cat litter box underneath the easel. keeping it real, folks!
soon, i’ll be posting more details of each area with sources.
home is…the ever evolving playroom.
