Playrooms are usually areas of controlled (or uncontrolled) chaos. However, playrooms can be just as stylish as the rest of the home. Colorful palettes, creative toy storage, and room for imagination can create playrooms with unexpected style. Here are 8 stylish playrooms that encourage the imagination and contain the chaos:

Children's Room

A colorway of primary colors establishes a bold style for this organized playroom. Love the cluster of colorful shades above the play table. Buckets, boxes and bins make for stylish storage.

A predominately white room sets the stage for bold color and pattern. Contemporary style isn't gender specific. And who wouldn't want an indoor slide?

Clever thinking can turn a small or awkward space into a charming and stylish playroom. A cloud shaped nook with a lovely mix of pendant lights becomes a magical reading space in this contemporary playroom.

Architectural salvage creates a charming playroom space in this attic garret. Using architectural elements can create a separate area within a larger room just for play.

Colorful textiles and wall coverings add style to any room, especially a playroom. Vintage inspired curtains and border add a nostalgia to this colorful playroom. Love the pennant garland.

Toys with style fill this playroom. Inspirational toys and the space to play offer opportunities to let the imagination run wild. Love the teepee and book nook.

Chalkboard paint is almost a must for a stylish playroom. Where else can you draw on the walls and not get in trouble? Chalkboard paint now comes in a rainbow of colors if you think black is too dark. We like the way the colorful drawings pop on the dark wall.

Use art to inspire colors in a playroom. Bold, graphic art works well in a playroom. Carry the color into the room through accessories and storage for a stylish playroom. Again pendant lighting over the work table is the perfect lighting choice for this space.

Thanks so much for coming by my blog Susan, and for leaving me such a sweet comment about my son’s room.

Hope you’re having a great day.


P.S. Love the collection of rooms you have posted. Would love to have a play room for my kids someday.
