A Blue, Turquoise and White Playroom Design

We officially move into our house on Monday. I am so excited to get in, get settled and start life in our new home. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been wonderful living with my parents these past few months, but we are ready to have our own space.

We literally have no furniture, because in Tahoe, we always rented furnished homes. I’ve been working hard to piece together each room in our house and purchase as much furniture as I can, so we aren’t sitting on the floor for dinner. Plus we are hoping to host a small family party for Lila’s birthday just 10 days after we move in (aggressive, I know).

We worked with local designer RCI Interior Design to help with furniture placement. colors and to pick out some furniture for us. Since we weren’t physically in the house, it really helped to have some measurements of each room and an idea of where furniture should go.

I’ll plan to take some photos once we are all settled in, but until then, here are some of the furniture pieces we’ve picked out.

First up, the playroom: The playroom is upstairs and will be a mix of white with turquoise and other blues/greens. We got most of the stuff from IKEA for this room, because kids and messes.

I love the white day bed we got there. It has three drawers plus it pulls out to be two twin beds for sleep overs. We are pairing it with white storage cubes with wicker baskets, a bright rug and this cool storage table also from IKEA – each level has storage.

I’m excited to see how it all comes together and to FINALLY have a place for all of Lila’s toys. If you’re interested in any of the items I’ve posted, visit my Playroom Pinterest page and each item is linked to it’s store.

I’ll be back with some photos once we get settled. Until then, wish us luck with our eighth and hopefully LAST move!
