As much as I love that our kids enjoy actively setting up imaginary shops, or building train tracks that run the length of our house, there are some afternoons where I wish that I could shut the door and hide the mess that is ensues. I've often thought how great it would be to have a kids playroom where they could leave their imagined worlds set up, all ready to go for tomorrow's dreaming. I'm inspired by all of the below, and hopefully one day, we'll have enough room to make a playroom a reality. Until then, we'll continue with our 'let's just tidy up at the end of each day' mantra.

Emma, at Beau Monde Mama, is based in New Zealand and has kindly provided notes on where she sourced all of the items she's used. We love the peachy tones and we're pretty impressed with the news that Emma created the feature wall in this room herself!

The buzz in our office around the upcoming New York trip had me searching for travel inspiration for kid's rooms on Pinterest this morning. One trend that caught my eye was the use of large maps as art in kids' rooms. There's something magical about the adventures that await a new life and maps are a great way to encourage little people's imaginations. Below are a few of my favourite...

There's something calming about the combination of white and grey, especially in kids rooms. We're about to start renovation number 2, so I'm looking for ideas for our little one's new room and found loads of inspiration on Pinterest. Interestingly enough quite a few of them also contain animals!

Are you a fan of the white and grey combination too? Or do you prefer to push the boundaries with colour in kids rooms?
