The play room is right off of the living room, with a door on each side of the fire place leading into the room. The breakfast area also opens up into the play room, although we have added a child gate to help keep the room a bit more contained. The location of this room in our house makes it an ideal place for a playroom because I can see and/or hear what he’s doing from several rooms in the house. But this also means that I had to be careful what color I chose for the room because it could be seen from the main parts of the house.
I really wanted the room to be lime green. But my husband was opposed to the idea because he didn’t want to see lime green from the living room or kitchen. The compromise- one wall, the wall that is shared with living room that can only really be seen from the breakfast area, would lime green and we would leave the other three walls light gray. So when the painter came to paint the new patio doors, I also had him paint the wall lime green.
