Entries in children's rooms (37)
Don't you sometimes wish you could be a kid again? After seeing this play structure by the office of mcfarlane biggar, I ABSOLUTELY DO! sam + pam is a play structure for kids. The two-metre by two-metre twin structure is made entirely out of 2×3" spruce-pine-fir protected from the elements with a clear varnish. 'Sam + Pam' suggests new forms of play from the premise of doing "much with little". Inside the slatted three-storey towers are ladders for climbing up to various perches and protected spaces. Kids can clamber through the multiple entrances connected by a rope bridge and monkey bars. Outside one of the towers, a pole slide offers another escape route. (It was built as part of the Playhouse Challenge for charity)
Neither Kim nor I have kids. It goes a long way to explaining why we don't feature children's rooms on Desire to Inspire. (Besides which Kim's twin sister Julia has a great kid's design blog the boo and the boy so why compete :) The trouble is when I came across Petite Vintage Interiors by Belinda Kurtz I started oohing and aahing and gushing. I stopped short of wanting to have a child. I'll just have me some of the gelati spotted, vintage fun instead. I wish my room had looked like this when I was little.
