If there is one trend that seems to be holding true to the modern day parents it is the desire to move away from colorful, plastic and cluttered playrooms. They are simply a thing of the past. Parents these days have more of a desire than ever to have a playroom (more so than we’ve seen in the past) but more than just a playroom, they want a space that is purposeful and safe. A space their kids can enjoy but also wont be such an eye sore to their design. I am one of those parents. In fact I can tell you a handful of my friends who have done away with a room in their house (most commonly the formal dinning area) and opted for an inspiring play place for their kids instead. Having a space for my girls and their toys is important to me. Having it filled with quality toys over quantity is also just as important. The modern day playroom provides a safe place for your children with design and products that make any millennial parent proud! Here is how I accomplished just that with our current playroom:

  1. Be Picky: With toys that is! Ever since my girls were little I loved shopping for wooden toys for them. If you know me, you know I am a huge supporter of the Montessori Method and providing my girls with open-ended toys for play. That still hasn’t changed and now I have the perfect new source for all toys safe and sleek. The collection of play toys at Peuro Baby is out of this world. Not only are their products pure and safe but their eye for design is amazing. Peuro Baby is your one stop spot for all natural baby essentials. Their toys (and products in general) are promised to be free of the following:                                                                                                                                                 (The Puero Baby Checklist)

  1. Channel Your Inner Minimalist: I must admit I am the farthest thing from a minimalist and I am totally happy with that. But when it comes to the playroom I want to keep it purposeful. I have broken their room down to stations (mommy & me play, puzzles, role play, music play etc) and I keep on top of the things that don’t get touched after time. For example: Music play is one station (bucket) and contains a few wooden musical instruments (found HERE) for them to explore. I have an area for fine motor skills which include things like puzzles and this adorable Prism Birds Wooden Stacker. Everything is in reach and at their disposal but most importantly gets used often and is safe for them. 
  2. Neutral Colors: The key to keeping this space modern in design is neutral colors. Don’t get me wrong, I love a pop of color and that’s important too but when picking out furniture for the space think light and bright. I love white and natural wood so you’ll see a lot of that but since I am your stereotypical girl mom I had to add some light pinks. I also love this Organic Big Apple Traveler Play Mat to add some color to space as well. My infant nephew is over a lot and this provides a safe and comfortable are for him to explore as well.  modern playroom, modern day playroom, modern moms, safe toys, montessori playroom, peurobaby, peuro baby, wooden toys

Sticking with these three easy steps you will find your playroom so much more functional and purposeful. Remember, a modern playroom doesn’t have to be boring and chances are by deciding to pick quality over quantity you will see a huge difference in the way your children interact with their space! Let me know your thoughts! Enjoy!

  • Today we frolicked with the fishies at the aquarium for their school field trip and let’s just say these girls couldn’t be happier! What a special way to kick off the long weekend AND Lo’s birthday 🎉🐠 Seeing them so happy is what I live for! #sistersister #birthdaygirl
  • How can I not feel blessed? Everyone I pass when I’m in public with these 4 blesses me as we pass by 🤣 I’ve had multiple people tell me how calm I seem with them (one of those people asked me if I was on drugs...I can’t make this stuff up!) and they have said that next time they feel stressed they’ll just think of me lol...One of those people was a dad so to his wife, you’re welcome, hopefully he comes home in a better mood 😂 I really should just start writing this stuff down because some of the comments we get are too funny! What is the craziest thing you’ve ever been told when out with your kids!? #momof4 #twinmom
  • Double yap this! Where are my target 🎯 friends at?! Not only is target doing their big toy sale right now but @justplayproducts also has the cutest new #Vamperina toy sets out and these girls certainly approve!! If you have a Vamperina fan you can stock up now while the sale is running!  #ad #justplayproducts #easterbasketstuffers
  • These goofballs performed “Shallow” by @ladygaga & Bradley Cooper in their school talent show last week and I finally got it up on YouTube 👏🏼 🎤 You can find the link in my bio or in my #YouTube highlights! I love watching these girls be so brave and standing in front of a crowd like it’s no big deal. If nothing else these girls are learning confidence and I’m just happy to be their biggest cheerleader 📣 #shallow #talentshow #theyalsosangfrozen #becausetheyreextra 🤣
  • So much thanks to @rutheckerdhall for hosting us today at the Daniel Tiger LIVE ‘King For A Day’ show ✨ Everything was perfect and it’s always a favorite venue of ours to attend. The show was adorable and we had 3 little ones with the biggest smiles on their faces the whole show 🐯 Head over to my stories for more of the fun! Do you like Daniel Tiger?! #hosted #danieltigerlive #rutheckerdhall #kingforaday
  • I’ve never had to be more patient than I have these last couple years building this house. Today was a breath of fresh air and reminded me why we chose the builder we did and why it’s taking as long as it has. He met us here on a Saturday to personally help facilitate the design of our front yard (which includes totally changing our driveway 🤦🏻‍♀️). I hear “change” and I immediately shut down but ultimately he wants this house and the finished product to be just as perfect as we do and that I can respect/appreciate! The house will get done and it will be worth it (I’m telling myself this not you 🤣) I shared a question box in my stories about what you’d all want more of on my feed and house updates were one of them! Here are some from today and I will share more as we finish this project up! The kids LOVED watching the lot get prepped for landscape ☀️ Live action of what they’re looking at is in my stories now!  #buildingcasabryant #newhome #custombuild
