California Coast | Play Room

Today's Art in the Home post is kicking off and a leading up to this week's Friday Post: Art and a Baby | Getting Creative with Baby!  Follow along with me on Instagram this week with the hash tags #mhtips4artmoms and #mhcreativeplay to see what fun things my son and I will be doing every day this week!  Hope you can join us!

. . .

This style board is inspired by my son's Play Space, which is just a mash up of things we already had around the house.  It ended up having California Coast feeling - so we went with it!  It ended up being perfect since this space matches the dining/living combo, "Coastal Countryside" I designed a while back - see style board here.  I love how it turned out!

Just want to point out a few things.  LOVE the wire display {5} that we are going to use for showing off my son's art projects!!!  Can't wait to see how that will look with all the cute baby art we do together!  The painted swiss cross {4} is actually my son's first painting that we did as a DIY "tummy time finger painting" project.  After it had dried, I overlaid the swiss cross image.  I love, love, love it!  I put a filter on this one so it matched the aqua colors in the space.  I'm going to do another one this week with him and will be posting about it on Instagram, you can follow along with the hash tag #mhcreativeplay!!

I really wanted the wire basket {16} shown, but we were trying to spend as little as possible putting together this space.  I ended up making a trip to Home Goods and we picked up an aqua blue wire basket with bamboo trim that was much more reasonable AND it couldn't be more perfect with the space's beach-y feeling!  We lucked out and got the director's chairs {15} at a thrift store a few years ago, and at the same time, we sewed our own white canvas seats and backs!  It's pretty much the perfect decor for a Film lover from California.  One last thing to highlight, a DIY Busy Board {7} that we made for my son!  We made it to match the space, you can see the DIY details here.

Hope you enjoy this style board - can't wait to share the how the real room turns out soon!
