The boys' stylish book storage house

Kid-friendly & sophisticated

My ideal look is sophisticated enough for an adult but secretly geared for children.

I enjoy finding creative ways to tie my children's needs into the design of my home, like by storing toys, trinkets, educational and art supplies in unique, visually appealing containers that work for them and the room. I recently scored a second hand play house for $6 that I now use for a mini bookshelf in the boy's room. I'm in love with it.

We are renting now, but when we own a home again, I'm dead set on installing a swing somewhere in the house and perhaps a super cool climbing wall...we'll see.
