Traditional Playroom for Kids AND Their Parents

Pin It

I’m in love.

Yes, I’m in love with this playroom. Can you blame me?

This lovely room was featured in Lonny Mag’s Spring 2011 issue as part of a spread done on a beautiful family home designed by interior designer Jeff Andrews. “As a family home, every room had to be good for the kids,” says Andrews. “They play everywhere, with no restrictions.”

The entire home was designed with the children in mind. When choosing items for the home, Andrews says that his criteria was that it not only had to be beautiful, it also had to be fun and interesting.

I highly recommend you check out the rest of the home on LonnyMag. But be warned, it is FABULOUS!

I think this traditional yet relaxed style works well for both parents and children to enjoy a little down time together.

What do you think?
