Mixing different black and white prints and then adding a cheerful dose of bright yellow is a fun way to liven up a play space for your kids, don’t you think? This room is aesthetically incredible, but also seems like it would be such a neat place for little ones to play, create, and hang out with friends. See and learn more about the room here!

P.S. More home inspiration, right this way!

For those kids who love to take over the house and build giant forts on the weekends, this play tent is a wonderful gift! Not only is it made by hand using canvas, wood, and ink, but it also easily folds up, has an awesome pirate skull print, and won’t turn the living room into an all-day no-enter zone. Check it out here!

Found on the Web: The Ama’r Children’s Culture House

We found these images of the Ama’r Children’s Culture House on this site and thought they were too neat to not share here. The house, located in Copenhagen, Denmark, was designed and built by Danish architect Dorte Mandrup, who took into consideration the children’s ideas and wishes throughout the entire design processes. The house offers a unique variety of spaces (nooks, caves, stairs, and angles galore) and activities for children, and from these pictures looks like a wonderful place for kids to play, create, explore, and grow. Read more about the house here – it is quite fascinating!
