Despite storing very little toys in this room, I wanted it to evoke peace and play. To achieve the peace, we kept a mostly neutral color palette with a pop of warmth from the wood and the leather couch. I also tried to keep the decor as minimal as possible (which helps when we have a bunch of tiny humans over). People keep asking what we'll hang above the fireplace, but I'm not sure that we'll hang anything. (Or maybe we just haven't found the perfect thing yet.) If this room were a profession, it would be a therapist. This is the space we bring our messy lives to. I wanted the room to be able to handle it. Of course, this is where we have fun too. I wanted to implement visual fun as a reminder. So we keep Hal's rocking horse out all the time. Kev named him Polo. Hal calls him Whole-Low and drags him all around the house.
We keep a stack of magazines (fun for me). And I just procured those tic-tac-toe pieces from Target (for us). The “game board” it came with was an afterthought, so I ditched it and made my own game board with black washi tape. More often than not, that coffee table is Hal's craft table too despite having a craft table just her size. It endures a lot. bout that TV. We chose to keep in on the ledge and off to the side (not mounted permanently above the fireplace). It's hard to hide a TV in a minimally designed room but it took our out-of-town friend a couple hours to figure out where the TV was. I'll mark that as a success. Our contractor drilled a hole in the back corner of the bench and covered it with a plastic cord cap. We feed the cords through the hole to the preexisting outlets beneath both sides of the benches. The outlets are covered by the wood, so we look cordless!
Look for negative space opportunities, In writing, sentences often contain extra words that without, the sentence would sound just fine. Train yourself to look for those moments in your own home. Is there a narrow wall with a small blot of art that when taken down, would still look like a fine wall? Is there a tabletop with a fledgling vignette that would look just as spectacular if cleared off? Don't look for places where you can take things down — look for spots that seem like they'd be just fine if you took extra accessories out of the equation. Sit with it,After identifying and eliminating a design element to create some negative or white space, sit with it. Don't give it just a few minutes — the immediate result will be like first seeing someone without glasses when you've only known them as a glasses wearer. Sit with newly negated space for a few days or a week.
