Rock the Block Season 3 | The Kid’s Spaces

Written by Jenny Marrs on . Posted in .

All along, we planned this house for a family. We knew that whomever ended up living here would want to live in a home that facilitate creativity and imagination and FUN. And, the third floor bonus and second floor kid’s room were the spaces we really just focused on creating spaces that were designed specifically for having fun. 

This adorable beach cottage bedroom is the perfect room for any kiddo – complete with a playhouse / bed and landing spot from the upstairs slide! Our own kiddos even got in on the phone and painted the artwork for this room (and the second floor homework station too!). I love the warmth and coziness of the cedar shake siding on the playhouse and the adorable dutch door that conceals the ladder up to the bed and landing area. This whole room is whimsical and I absolutely love it! 

The Playroom

The idea of bringing in a slide from the 3rd floor playroom down to the bedroom below was a little crazy but Dave Marrs managed to pull this one off! We completed the slide with a little dock-inspired launch area – the top of the dock features a perfect cozy nook for reading books. And, of course, the climbing wall across the room is perfect for getting energy out. The gorgeous mural by a local artist completed the entire space … we move from the mountains of the Carolinas to the low country in this playroom and I couldn’t love it more! 

Everything about this space is meant to foster creativity and to be a place where joyful childhood memories are made. I hope the family who moves in has as much fun in this room as we did designing and building it. Everyone on our crew (and all of our neighbors on the block) had a blast on this slide! So much laughter has be infused into these walls already and that makes my heart happy!
