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!

  • I’ll be done with the vaca pics soon but as I’m here unpacking from the trip (yes, I’m still unpacking 😂) I had to share this portable playpen from @babyseater.us that we received before we left! Normally the boys FREAK OUT if we try to contain them in any sort of baby jail (I mean play pen 🤪) but because this one can be left open at times the boys took to it much better. It was their space for them play and come and go as they please. They didn’t look at it negatively because of this! SO if I needed them contained it wasn’t a huge deal to zip the side up quick while I got done what I needed to do and they kept on playing 👏🏼 I may just keep this set up ongoing for them to have their own space since they seemed to love it so much! I’m going to link this in my stories now if you’re interested! Total game changer for these two #ad #twinlife
  • She was eager to get back to playing golf so we ran out to get a couple drives in before those dark clouds made their way in🏌️‍♀️ #5yearsold #juniorgolf
  • We sure are missing our sunsets at the beach house right about now! I just pulled these pictures off my camera of the girls and they were so happy running off their energy to this beautiful scene ☀️Now it’s back to hitting golf balls at sunset until we move! You can see these little ladies working it in my stories (a full day of the #usopen will do that to ya!) 🏌️‍♀️ #beachsunsets #mygirls
  • Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there! I’m so lucky to do parenthood with this guy. He’s patient, loving, so so funny and fills in all my weaknesses 💙  Everybody he meets loves him too (to the point that I get sighs when I show up to the kids’ pediatrician without him 😆.) I think it’s safe to say our crew hit the daddy jackpot (wether they know it now or not, they will!) ✨ He really is the best! ✨Also, only 1 of 4 kids pictured because, well #4kids 😜 #happyfathersday
  • Today was a travel day for us 🚗 It was time to say good-bye to this trip and hello to the rest of summer break ☀️ The car may have been loaded with a weeks’ worth of stuff jumbled up for our crew but I still love to keep my stuff together (and separate 🤣!) I have loved how multi-functional this Day Trip bag from @loganandlenora has been for this trip and I’m so happy it arrived in time to use! From a crossbody bag to a hand bag AND it slides right on your luggage too 👏🏼 Def my new fav travel companion! #ad #summervacay
  • Last night at the house called for ice cream on the beach for sunset 🌅 Swipe to see these crazy sugar high ladies (& Lo’s sassy self)🍦We had the best week and I hate to see it end but so thankful for the time we had! Hoping our next big event is moving into our house...if it’ll ever get complete 😬 #summervacay #sunset
