Right on the money

As a Mom I strive to make my home a fun place for kids to be welcome, but at the same time maintain a posh living space. This isn't the easiest thing to do seeing that most kids furniture and toys don't exactly represent this. However when I saw this picture on Decorpad I just said to myself that this is the perfect example of what I am trying to achieve. I love the grown up glam green chairs and the matching white tables. The tables give the space a certain uniformity enabling it to flow together nicely. The little white modern S chairs are perfect for the kids but still have that grown up sophistication! Love

I've always been head-over-heels for this dining room. It's the perfect punch of colour! From what I have seen of your home Leah, you have a perfect balance and a lovely family home. Will

omg I love it! Being kid friendly is a big thing for me too as we have a lot of young kids in the family.

Brandi said...

This is so cute! It's hard to find examples like this. since I don't have kids I try to strike a balance between posh and dog/cat friendly haha!

Awesome idea! And, I must say, from what I have seen so far, you are doing a great job at keeping things kid-friendly and totally posh at the same time.

Chantale said...

This is beautiful! And kids love to be included with the grownups as well and not relegated to the kid's table way off in the corner. I love how they integrate the smaller kids table with theirs and in a choice spot! Right by the window.. What a great room!
