Before + After: The Lake House: Studio Slash Playroom

Oh look. Another yellow room. 






























I've been working on it.

It basically serves as a creative space for me and the kiddo.  Andrew found me this perfect dresser for Valentine's Day, and after hauling it up three flights of stairs I decided this room was finished enough to take some photos.

I'm still contemplating adding a climbing rope for Aston.  We'll see.

I know babies grow with time and that's a fact but he's becoming a little kid!

And I'm SHOCKED!

The space is beautiful. XOXO

I was just going to ask if Aston pounds on the piano keyboard yet and then I saw that last pic. I love it!

What a nice space to relax and play in. It turned out beautiful.

So pretty! Love the rugs. Where did you get the wire thingy with the hooks? I have three or four cookie fortunes floating around in my purse and I love that idea.

Oh good grief ! Look how big that boy has gotten !! You have to start posting more often, I missed you guys :)

Okay, with all the little corners, do you lose him sometimes? Because we just have a box, basically, and I'll run into the kitchen to turn down a pot or something and by the time I get back around the corner Rowan has disappeared and I have a heart attack and die. And then find him in the cat cave and come back to life again, but with more wrinkles. Does this happen to you?

Oh yes, must also add: it's lovely. And the dresser is fab.

Thanks for sharing this! I loved it! I am having a hard time finding houses for sale in Centerville Utah. Do you by chance have any recommendations for me?

Gorgeous! The only sour note for me was that stringy thing hanging from the doorknob. I'd fear that Junior might get tangled up in it.

Found your blog through the apartment therapy post and have now spent hours reading your blog. Thanks for keeping me entertained on one of my last days at a job I hate. And the post on Aston's birth was traumatic to read. I can't even imagine how you and your family got through that.

What a cozy place. The light makes it look like it has so much space! I really like the kids scene, having a little baby myself? What kind of piano is that if I may ask?

This is gorgeous. You have such a way to make a room look put-together but not overdone. Classic, but not stuffy. Love it. As always.

Is he obsessed with the guitar? Henry's favorite thing in the world is daddy's guitar. He'll crawl from other rooms to get to it. We've been on the lookout for a kid-sized version.

Caroline @ The Feminist Housewife said...

Love this space! Sure makes me want to be creative! = )

SHERRY HART said...

That is a great space...! Love how you put it all together.

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

You really know how to take great photos and style a room without it looking overdone, I love it! You make me like white rooms when I typically don't. Also, baby at the little piano made me melt.

Deb said...

That room looks so cozy - I'm with Sara in that I typically don't like white rooms either but that one looks warm and inviting. Of course, the baby in the pictures helps makes me feel all warm and fuzzy :)

Sarah @ Cozy.Cottage.Cute. said...

Ah man, I want a room like that.

(whiny voice)

Heh heh heh.

I think we're due up for an update on that cute boy.

Just sayin'.

;)

You must definitely be planning to make it special and memorable by
keeping a good theme, ordering the best food and choosing the best games.
