A few weeks shy of being in the house a year, I am putting the finishing touches on the playroom. It took the longest because I needed the kids to looove this room. A place the kids wanted to play in, read in, watch tv in, even disappear to, if you know what I mean….mama needs some alone time…sorry!! The playroom is honestly one of my favorite rooms in our house because of its shape and A-frame ceilings. It has little nooks and crannies with built in desks, along with four little closets that house the girls toys in one, the boys toys in another, stuffed animals in another, and Kaitlin’s secret hide away in the last one. One day I’ll convert the girls toy closet into a playhouse. The other side of the house, just above the garage, has an exact replica of the playroom. That side will eventually be a movie theater-office for my husband. Yep the playroom took precedence…is that bad??
Okay so back to the playroom. I’ve had a lot of fun putting this room together. One of the biggest most important pieces for this room was the couch, it had to be just right! Side note, before we bought this house, the only non second hand piece of furniture we ever bought was the Christmas of 2013 and it was a couch. I was so excited I could barely stand it. Couches to me are the most important part of every family or living room. For the playroom, I needed something super stylish but also durable and easy to care for. Lets be honest, five kids, two of which are two year old twins can pretty much destroy anything in two minutes flat, trust me they have!! Enter Jonathan Louis Furniture. Getting the opportunity to collaborate with them has been amazing. They offer pretty much every piece of furniture you would ever need for your house, from sectionals, to sofas, to chairs to beds, even cocktail ottomans. Every piece by Jonathan Louis Furniture is high quality, durable and long lasting…just what this family of couch jumping, table flipping, marker drawing crazies need.
The hardest part of the whole process was choosing a fabric. I knew I wanted gray but they had about 100 different grays to choose from. They sent me a ton of fabric swatches from their enormous collection and as soon as I received them I knew immediately which one would look best with the Maddock Sofa, my playroom decor, and also hide marker, soda, dirt, and sticky candy. I could go on and on but I’ll spare you the crazy things I find stuck to my furniture.
The sofa arrived and it was even better than I had imagined in my mind. I added a little bit of Christmas to the room and viola…the playroom was done and in perfect time for Christmas gatherings. We have a ton of little cousins that are going to be playing in this room in the coming days and I hope that they feel the magic of Christmas around them. I know I sure do…so much that I may not want to take down the decorations. Oh but wait that just means I get to shop more for little accents to replace all the Christmas, so it isn’t all bad. One thing for sure is that the Jonathan Louis sofa wont be going anywhere for a very long long time. Since the couch arrived they have migrated from the main family room to the playroom…and honestly that allows for a little more alone time with the husband and more control over the TV…sorry just being honest!!!
