Where we play

We have a playroom in our house. It is supposed to be the formal living room, but we needed a playroom. Since it is in the front of the house, I wanted it to be fun but not too young and not too Fisher Price like.

I wanted grey walls. I just thought they would be nice and crisp with the white crown molding and baseboards. I knew I also wanted black and white to go with it. Then at the Atlanta Gift Mart, I saw some napkins that were black and white with lime green! I LOVE lime green! I knew that I could make the space fun with lime green!

I started with cornice boards. Since it's a playroom I didn't want curtains. I wanted something simple.

There you have it. Simple cornice boards with a touch of whimsy. Refreshing, isn't it?!


  1. I love the black and white cornice board! Can you tell me where you found the fabric, it's perfect for my daughters room! Thanks for any suggestions!

    1. Minton Domino. Just found it!

  2. Hi Kristi
    SO sorry, I just now saw this comment?! I found it at a store in Raleigh, NC called Mill Outlet Village. It is an amazing fabric store with some great prices (some not so much!). This was one of the great priced ones. I believe it is Waverly. I also firmly believe it was black. Some might argue that. I found this while trying to google it for you. I like this too. I bet if you called and/or showed it to someone at a fabric store they might know it...especially at a true fabric store (not a craft store). Good luck and let me know if you find it!! Can't wait to see your daughters room!!
