Featured One Kings Lane Project: Lucy Liu’s Playroom
Paintzen is thrilled to present this One Kings Lane project we worked on.
How do you imagine your favorite actor’s home looks like? Is there a picturesque kitchen? Artwork hanging on the walls and luxurious furniture? Maybe.
But when children are involved, it might take on a different look. Kids will be kids – which means there may be messy bedrooms and playrooms with toys everywhere. Don’t forget about the constant marks on the walls.
Playroom or Storage
Lucy Liu recently partnered with One Kings Lane interior design to redesign her son’s playroom in their Manhattan apartment. The design of the space was neglected because it was just a storage room for toys.
Lucy was ready to change that. The goal was a room that works for both Rockwell, her son, and function as a living room for guests. To bring that transformation to life, this One Kings Lane project with the help of Paintzen needed the color and texture on the walls to change.
A Neutral Palette
When selecting the color palette, Lucy and One Kings Lane designer Nicole Fisher decided on a neutral, contemporary style. They chose to avoid primary colors, which are overused in children’s rooms and playrooms.
Instead, they chose to have Paintzen paint the walls in a cozy gray with warm beige undertones. (Try PPG ‘Slate Pebble’ for a similar look!) It created a perfect backdrop for the decor selected for the room, which included a tepee for Rockwell, some Tribal-inspired artwork, Moroccan woven baskets, and some framed artwork.
Take a closer look at this smartly designed space, featuring a beautiful neutral color palette and lots of exciting textures!
