Taryn and Mike's downstairs room is a mishmash of a space and they aren't sure how to deal with it. They want to use it as a playroom for their children, but one wall is taken up by Mike's bookshelf, the toys are hard for the kids to reach, and there isn't a comfortable place for the kids to play and the adults to sit. The room needs definition. For inspiration, Genevieve is reaching back to the past to emulate turn of the century sensibilities, giving the playroom a general store feel. Building an indoor playhouse with a classic Victorian look, adding a chalk board wall, and using a colorful braided rug will achieve the vintage look she's going for. Picture frame wallpaper with family photos in the frames and rocks for climbing will add a modern touch and give this new playroom some extra punch.
