I am not very good at designing rooms, but I try hard! That being said, I am very pleased with how our playroom is coming along. What was once the least appealing room in the house (not including the master bathroom) is now quite enjoyable to spend time in. I discovered that it is hard to convince your children to keep their toys in a room if you don't enjoy being in there with them. We still have some things to work on, but things are coming along nicely.
The plant is the first plant that I was ever able to keep alive. It is a Christmas Cactus that I received as a housewarming gift in one of the apartments I lived in. Since then I have kept alive 3 more. (I know that impresses you!)
The other end of the room has a great tyndall stone fireplace. Unfortunately I did not get a nice picture of it. The couch also needs to be slip covered (again) - so I deliberately left it out. The colour of the room is Cedar Key by Benjamin Moore.
