Our home has a beautiful loft area that I have always loved! It has been many things over the years that we have owned this house; my office, a boutique, a craft room. Once Addilyn started to get a little older, and mama started getting overwhelmed by the toys all over the place, I decided we needed to create a fun space just for her and all of her “stuff”- ahem (mama’s sanity). About this same time, I decided to close my boutique, so converting the loft to a playroom was the most logical thing!
Now that Lillie is here too, I really wanted to put some effort into making it special for them! I can’t wait to give you a tour, so scroll on! And if you see something you are loving, I will be sure to include links to where you can grab one yourself.
I’ve alway wanted a little teepee for Addie, but wasn’t crazy about the colorful ones. Then I stumbled across this one that was perfect! Light, solid color (you could totally customize this for a boy, too) and it came with the fairy lights for free!
The girls’ grandma bought them a little bookshelf (this is the same one!) that I placed beside it so that Addie could pick a book and snuggle in her cozy spot! Girl loves to read, and my hope is that it affords mama a little quiet time, too!
As you can tell, she’s a fan! The little curtains close, too…for those moments when a girl just wants to be alone.
Like I said, the teepee came with the fairy lights, which was a major plus! Baby girl loves them and they add just enough whimsy.
As for arranging the flowers, they are just tucked in the top with the stems to the back. No one really sees back there, so it doesn’t bother me one bit!
On the other side, we have some energy burning activities and some make believe! I made the flowers on the wall by hand using my Cricut. I made a little curtain out of strands on the vine, and the Sparkle sign was a TJ Maxx find! There’s also a gorgeous boho dream catcher in the corner…it’s a little hard to see in the picture here!
I’m obsessed with these shelves, and they make up a huge part of my office which is on the other side of the loft. I’ll have to show you guys soon! I needed some more toy storage, so I ordered a 4-cube shelf for their side of the room, and some bins. My OCD can hardly stand that the one doesn’t match, but it was a gift and I am all for being practical and not buying things I don’t need (usually!), so in here it stays for now!
Baby girl wanted a slide so bad, for so long. So Santa brought her this one for Christmas and it is perfect in there. To make things a little more fun, we wanted her to have a ball bit too. I tried an inflatable one (that sucked) and looked into the cute foam ones (those cost an arm and a leg!) and then found this life saver! It’s a great price, and fully collapsible so you could totally fold it up and store it in a bin with the balls if you didn’t want to leave it out all of the time. Win, win!
After review stalking, I landed on these balls, and definitely need to order another few hundred now that we have a bigger pit. Both of my girls love these, and it’s been a fun thing for Lillie as she learns to sit on her own!
Side note! Let me do you a favor, mama! Check out the Meal Planning Mom Hack that saves me hours every week! You won’t regret it!
Speaking of Lillie, she loves it up here, too! It’s the only carpeted room in our house, so she gets lots of floor time to roll and explore.
That awesome coordinating (and collapsible) toy bin? Target find! Check it out HERE. The round hamper was a gift and is full of dress up clothes. Some day, I will put a cute little rack and mirror in here, but it works for now!
After hunting high and low for a white kitchen for Addie for months, Santa brought her this KidKraft one and it has been the best! Just the right size for her and she could play with it for hours! It’s affordable and quality made!
(Side note- that little green handle to the left- Scoop and learn Ice Cream Cart! So much fun and a great learning tool!)
We grabbed her this cute little table for her second birthday back in March so that she could have a spot of her own. It has been in our kitchen for months, but with the re-emergence of the high chair, it was time to bring it up. This is where I intended it all along, and she has been thrilled to have her own table to play eat at and have tea parties! (This little tea set has been one of her all-time favorite toys! 10 out of 10 recommend).
Like I said, we are loving this new space! I cannot wait to watch the girls learn to play together up here and make lots of memories. I hope that maybe it gives you a little inspiration, if you are working on a girly play room or nursery yourself!
