children’s outdoor playhouses

30 March, 2014 in kids design, seasonal

children's playhouse & tree house ideasIt really feels like spring here in London today, the perfect time for a round up of outdoor playhouse and treehouse ideas.

I really like a traditional cottage style playhouse with a thatched or tiled roof, but if you prefer go for something more modern. What about a gypsy or circus style trailer playhouse? (In Holland we call these “pipowagen”, Pipo being the name of a clown.) Another idea is to use a small vintage caravan and decorate this to your heart’s content with curtains, planters full of flowers, pretty wallpaper and paint. The ultimate hide-out play house is a treehouse. The one above is from a Dutch company I admire because they do sweet interiors as well. Here in the UK try the Blue Forest company for example. Happy playtime!

zoe barker garden deer wallpaper

garden deer wallpaper zoe barker at from the wild

Spring is officially here today, so to celebrate I wanted to share this gorgeous floral Garden Deer wallpaper by Zoe Barker. Don’t you think that a single panel of this would make a sweet accent mural in a spring nursery or kid’s bedroom? The design can also be printed large scale as individual wallpaper panels, printed at 160cm wide, tailored to your space.

bringing the outside in


Longing for summer, I’m bringing the outside in today. If you have enough space, you could set up a wooden playhouse in the playroom. Alternatively a teepee or play tent will provide hours of fun or a quiet nook to hide.
