Kids Craft Room: 2010 Atlanta Symphony Show House & Gardens

Pin It

If you have space in your home for a playroom/kids craft area, I suggest you take some notes from this showroom.

One of my favorite details in the room is also a budget-friendly project that any of you can try in your home.

There were 3 doors hiding massive storage that were covered in metal sheets and converted into magnetic boards. The doors were totally wrapped on the front & sides was finished on the back for safety reasons. The corners were smooth so there would be no issues to be had with little one’s running around this door. Nail head toppers were also added to cover the screws to make it look like a built-in and not an “add-on”. The magnetic board can be seen in the top left of the photograph below.

Margaret L. Norcott, Principal of Millieu Design Group, is the mastermind behind this room showcased at the 2010 Atlanta Symphony Show House & Gardens. Margaret says that the main inspiration for the room was the Middle Window Floral Fabric {by Duralee}. “All the paint, fabrics and accessories to Floor tiles were a result of this wonderful, gender-neutral (not to childish) fabric.”
