Where do the toys go?

Since a few of you asked this question after this post, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite features of this house. There is an extra bedroom on the main level of the house...aka PLAYROOM!!! I love having a room where I can close the door and make the mess go away. The toys still creep out into the family room...and kitchen...and dining room...and...

...but that's okay.


These windows leave in a lot of light, and sometimes Adeline can even watch our neighbors chocolate lab running in their backyard.  Good times.


I also thought I would try again with the bathroom, but really, this still doesn't do justice to my asparagus color.  Patrick and I finally hung these black and white photos from all of our travels this year.  I love it!  We do also have a double sink, toilet (in it's own cute little room), and shower, but to show you these would require cleaning the messes off of the sink and moving the towels and washcloths hanging around the shower, and I just wasn't there this morning.

The black and whites are so cool! And yes, having a playroom is HEAVEN! We had one in our place in Korea and it was great!

Guess you don't use the tub? Cause I don't have flower arrangements and framed pics on mine, just bath toys and bottles of soap. Looks like a magazine pic. Can't wait to see the wall color in person!

i love the green in your bathroom - the pic's look great.

the playroom is awesome with those big windows. isn't it nice to have a space to put all the toys and not worry about them. we have our bonus room now but in our old house we had a toy room in our basement and i loved it. if it got too messy we could just shut the door and forget about it.

so glad you are enjoying your new home.

I'm loving that bathroom! It looks like you guys are really getting settled in!

First of all, your playroom is waaaaaay to neat. We need to get the boys over there to show Adeline how it's done. Secondly, I love that some of your photos are in ovals, not just rectangles. I totally plan on stealing this idea for my very plain, very white bathroom. Thanks!

I am a firm believer that playrooms are gifts of God Himself. And I know you said that it wasn't all picked up, but that bathroom is WAYYYYYYYYY cleaner than mine. It looks gorgeous!

And now that I've seen it in person I have to confirm that the bathroom color is much more vivid and avocado than it looks like here. I like it. I think it's my favorite room in your house!
