The per­fect play­house

What be­gan as a sim­ple chil­dren’s play­house has turned into a va­ca­tion des­ti­na­tion,” Julie Kantrowitz of JK In­te­rior Liv­ing says. “It was hard not to fall in love with this Ridge­wood project. Fur­nish­ing a minia­ture house brought me back to fur­nish­ing my doll­house as a child. Any­thing done in such small scale is ir­re­sistibly pre­cious.”

Kantrowitz be­gan this project want­ing to en­hance what was al­ready a great play space. By adding pale pink and vi­o­let hues to the walls, she in­stantly trans­formed the space into a whim­si­cal re­treat. The floor was painted white, and with the help of painter’s tape, a con­trast­ing lime green painted bor­der was added to co­or­di­nate with the fab­ric on the HomeGoods up­hol­stered arm chairs. The pe­tite ta­ble and chairs are from Pottery Barn Kids and suited the space per­fectly for lit­tle ladies who lunch. Soft, over­sized throw pil­lows in ma­genta, turquoise and white were added to the up­stairs loft.

On the front porch, Kantrowitz se­lected chil­dren’s rock­ing chairs and painted them a soft Tif­fany blue. The mail­box was an added touch as the lit­tle girls await their in­vi­ta­tions.

Play­house col­ors in­clude Ben­jamin Moore Soft Pink, Amethyst Cream and Dark Lime.
