Brittany from Addison Wonderland is known for her bold use of color and pattern. In a world of neutrals, whites and grays it is a fun welcome change. I asked Brittany to share one of her kids rooms for my article in Everything Home Magazine for my column on Kids Spaces that I write for. She shared her daughters play room. Her daughters are pretty lucky girls to get to use their imagination in this space.
Brittany has one rule when it comes to kid spaces and that is to have fun! She also says that there are literally no rules when it comes to playrooms and kid’s bedrooms. It is what she loves most about designing these types of spaces. She says nothing is too bold or crazy or whimsical. When Brittany starts selecting the look for a kid space, she tends to think most about gender and age. That is always the basis for how she starts the design process. She likes to make sure it works for them individually and captures their personality.
Brittany suggests when designing a new space to start with an inspiration element. For her daughters playroom, she knew wanted something mega bold, colorful and girlie. She fell in love with the emerald ikat wallpaper. That was definitely her starting point for this playroom and she says it’s the element everyone seems to love most!
Brittany feels the most forgotten area in a home are the ceilings. She made WOW statement with a hot pink ceiling to coordinate with the fun wallpaper in play room. I love the contrast and how the painted the vent on the ceiling the same color to disguise it. She also painted the ceiling in her home office…
I asked Brittany how she manages all of her kids “treasures”. Brittany said her trick is using a lot of cute baskets. She always grabs hampers, boxes and baskets at places like HomeGoods for all of their “stuff”. She says you can never go wrong decorating with them plus it makes clean-up time a breeze! Thanks for sharing this kids space with us Brittany! Make sure to read the new magazine of Everything Home HERE to see other great features like this.
