Show Us Where You Live Friday!

This week on "Kelly's Korner" the featured room is Playrooms/Bonus Rooms/Laundry Rooms. I was excited because we actually have a Bonus room. We recently re-decorated the room to make it a safe playroom for Dominic when he is mobile. What I love most about the room is the fact that there are NO cords in reach for Dominic, there isn't a TV or DVD player that he could reach up and grab. The couch is very soft and the room is open--perfect for playing! :) Thanks for taking a look!

If you've noticed in the other room tours, our decor isn't extremely "girly" and when we decided to paint the walls of this room-I jumped at the chance to have a peaceful purple room!

You can see attached to the ceiling is a HD projector. LOVE IT! This was Lou's dream (a media room) and added the surround sound. We plan on having an actual "movie theater" type room when we eventually move.
This room is still in the works. We haven't installed the curtain hooks or added pictures to the frame. I plan on using all black & white photos in here.
This was SO easy and I love the way it turned out. We were going to frame in the screen but decided that we would just leave a white strip on the wall. Thank goodness for a laser level! The white square inside the white strip is actually a piece of paper that is covering a light switch we had moved...the room is still in the works! lol But look--nothing plugged into outlets but the safety covers! :) You can also see the door to the half bath on the right. (the butterfly bathroom)
The picture is actually very clear but at the time we were watching "Hells Kitchen" and clearly this potential chef was cooking up a storm! I can't wait to watch some Buckeye Football games this fall on the 90 inch screen!

One of our wedding gifts, from Lou's cousin Nicole and her husband, Jared. Isn't it so neat?! This still needs a black & white photo to replace the colored one.

I'm so proud of this!! I actually bought the large "G" and placed a matted frame around it. You can really see the different levels & shadows in person.

This room is on the first floor of our three story home...I'm planning on spending a lot of the HOT summer down in the coolest room! Thanks for taking a look! :)

Liking that G! I have it on my list to find something similar and that's a great idea to consider!

Riley said...

WOW - what a great room! My husband and I would love the media room - so fun! Your son is adorable :)

Shelby said...

You did a great job! I just have to say.. I adore the photos of your son with the bear dressed for different holidays! SOOO CUTE!

I love the movie screen. I can't show this to my husband or he'd want one next. Thanks for sharing!

April said...

Great neutral space for a bonus room! I like the L shaped furniture. I hope to have something similar if we ever get our basement finished off :)

I love your son's photos with the same teddy bear. I wish I would have started something like that. He's adorable. seems we are on the same path of life right now. Married in summer of 07, had our first son's this past fall. They sure grow fast huh?

Thanks for visiting my blog! Hope to hear from you again.

I love this room! I love that it's "baby safe"...I need to be working on that myself! The framed "G" is SO creative!

Nice job - Your room looks great - I know my husband would love to have a media room, I might just have to take some decorating ideas from you!

Love your large G! All our husbands would die for a projector system like that one!

Have a great weekend!
