In this month’s August Family Homes issue, we featured a reinvented playroom for college- and high school-aged kids designed for a West Little Rock family by designer Peri-Gay Walker. Today, we get to share a little look at the before, so you can see how the design began for Peri-Gay and her clients.
Here are a few “before” images of this project. This is such a good transformation of a space that really grew up for the children who use it most. I’m just gonna say, I bet those kiddos loved that built-in indoor tree house when they were little! It’s so fun, but needed to change with this changing family.
While taking all the client’s wishes into consideration, Peri-Gay went to work and created a couple rough sketches of her design she offered to share with you…
Peri-Gay put together the ultimate design plan for a brother and sister pair who use the space most. They wanted a lounging area and an extra place for friends to sleep if they stay over. So, Peri-Gay transformed the tree house into a sleeping loft with padded walls and a custom mattress. Genius! Also, the space included a new sofa with a foldout mattress. Now, the space can accommodate these older teenagers and is a great space for them to lounge and host their friends.
Here’s a look of the finished space…
What a great transformation. Thank you, Peri-Gay, for sharing this project with us and giving us a peek into the “before” images!
