This week’s favorite comes to us from Goat & Lulu.

Look of the Week: Playroom Reading Nook

As a designer, there’s nothing more exciting than getting the green light to experiment aesthetically with willing clients. Since many customers skew towards a more traditional, conservative taste, it can be extremely thrilling to accept those more unique, whimsical challenges. Although these can be few and far between, enter the exception- the kids’ room.

Children grow up fast, and their tastes invariably change- so as a designer, it’s enormously enjoyable to take advantage of the opportunity to employ that youthful, imaginative design before it’s outgrown by your tiny clients.

So as a salute to childhood spirit, this week’s #LOTWDesign offers tiny readers a dreamlike escape similar to those they’ll explore in their storybooks.

Lime green garland, a illusory dangling princess tent and a wall full of charmingly cute imagery come together in the spirit of daydreaming to create Goat&Lulu’s playroom reading nook for kids.

If you’re coordinating a similar study spot in a client’s playroom, embrace that feeling of unshackled creativity- flexibility in appropriate color, pattern and décor spirit allows for a great deal of personal innovation and fun when it comes to youthful design.
