3 stylish playrooms: trends to try now

Playrooms are one of my favorite things in the world to dream up and design (as evidenced here and here). Since September is officially Baby Safety Month, Munchkin asked me if I’d do a few different playroom design roundups showing off their brand new premium baby gates. Playrooms don’t have to follow all the rules — they can be as whimsical and crazy as you can imagine! But being design-conscious, I particularly love that Munchkin gets that and made some pretty fab baby gates to keep it all tied together aesthetically. Form & function!

Pastel playrooms are the stuff of cotton candy dreams – happy yellows, pretty pinks, and soothing mint all come together beautifully. I love it paired against crisp white to tone it down a little. Look for natural wood and organic accents as well as unexpected details like the pastel-painted details on the bookshelf below. The Munchkin Vibe gate in Cherry is a happy pop of color to continue the color scheme down to the very last detail.

Black and white is a HUGE trend in interiors, not only for grown-up spaces but especially in nurseries and playrooms. It’s been a big deal in Europe for awhile and it’s finally starting to trickle over the Pond to the US. I love it – it feels fresh, unexpected, and it has the potential to age well with your kids.  Go bold & graphic — black & white stripes, stars, polka dots, and swiss cross designs all star in this look.

The Munchkin Luna safety gate is so cool – it has an LED light which is such a smart addition, especially in a place like on the stairs.

I love the mishmash of styles happening in this roundup. Bold color countered with traditional details make for an all-new modern spin on a classic style. Experiment with vintage artwork and different textiles in varying scales. It’s all about personality and the Munchkin Vibe safety gate in Ice blends seamlessly into the background.

Which one is your favorite? I’m hoping to update Jude’s room later this year and depending on what he wants, we might go the Mod Pod route…

Thanks to Munchkin for sponsoring today’s post! If you’re in the market for safety gates, theirs seriously can’t be beat. I only wish I’d waited a little while longer for these cool new updated versions!
