15. Bright and cheery in MinneapolisPerfect for a busy space where there is a mix of colours and accessories, such as this kids’ study and play area, the Lou Lou Ghost chairs pull the vibrant look together.Tell usDo you own a Ghost chair? What version do you have and where in your home do you place it? We’d love to see photos in the Comments.MoreBrowse eclectic-style spaces
Bring order to kids’ roomsWith the Christmas influx of more stuff, January is the perfect time to do an audit of kids’ rooms. I love that rule whereby for every one new thing that comes into the house, one must go out of the house. Get your kids involved in the process; explain to them that they do grow out of toys and games.Start with a clean slate and plan the space. Clear everything from the room, give it a good old clean and then assess and zone the room: play space, storage space, chill space, etc. Then sort through games and puzzles to make sure that all the pieces are still there. Place puzzle pieces or dice and game pieces into ziplock bags to keep them together. Anything broken should be discarded and anything damaged, mended.TIP: Make a game of cleaning up the clutter at the end of each day to involve the kids and teach some early good habits!
9. Stash toys awayEven the smallest of rooms can become a fabulous playroom. The smaller the space, though, the more organised your storage system will need to be. This playroom works because toys and clutter can be hidden out of sight.
