Creating A Kid’s Playroom

A dedicated playroom in your home can be a great benefit for keeping the kids occupied and safe, while allowing you to concentrate on life’s daily chores.   But to accomplish this, it is critical to properly plan and design the room from the onset.  All kids have different likes and needs, and the playroom must be designed to address those interests.

In addition, you must consider that your kids will grow faster than you think, and the playroom will no doubt be used less and less as the kid’s get older and develop other interests.  So unless the budget is not a factor, you probably don’t want to invest in expensive kid’s furnishings at this early age, since the room may change purpose and personality in only a few years.

Area Rug Trends

Last week I stopped in at Capel Rugs.  For a long time, Capel has been one of my favorite Dallas-area retail suppliers of area rugs.  They have everything from reasonably priced machine made rugs, to exquisite hand knotted masterpieces.  But the best part, is that the rugs are all hanging instead of laying one on top of the other on the floor.  I can take my time and flip through the selections at my own pace.  Once I want to see one on the floor, the staff is fast and accommodating.

I loved seeing all the new arrivals.  Here’s a few of what I saw.

Yellow and gray, one of my favorite combinations, continues to be popular in home decor.

A white room is indeed a luxury.  It’s also the ultimate in sophistication!  Unfortunately it does come with practical limitations, but if your circumstances allow you to surround yourself in white, you are indeed fortunate.
