Why Lucy Liu’s New Playroom Makes Us Want to be a Kid Again

Lucy Liu's Playroom

Fit for almost any age, Lucy Liu’s playroom design definitely has us wanting to hang out and play. Working closely with her designer, and communicating up front about her wish list for the playroom, Liu was able to create a space that is safe, functional, and most of all playful while not disrupting the flow of her sophisticated New York City apartment. Here are a few reasons we love the end result.

Organized Chaos

Knowing this was a playroom, no one expects it to be perfect all the time, but considering it’s open to the rest of the house, Liu needed to find the balance between fun and organization. Functional storage options make clean up a breeze, and help reduce clutter. Plus it’s always a good idea to have the little ones help in clean up!

Continuous Color Scheme

Living in an open floorplan, it was important to work with a color scheme that followed that of the entire home…perfectly blending the work/play idea together in the design, yet adding fun pops of color and vintage children’s artwork to include more childlike touches.

A Place to Create

Liu made sure there was plenty of room to create, draw, and read. Butcher paper mounted on a wall roll, rustic-framed chalkboards, and comfortable chairs for reading provide for playful and relaxing options in the space. And a fun Teepee tent is the perfect place to play and dream!
