Our clients wanted us to convert a small breakfast nook off of their family room into a play area for their kids but they did not want it to be seen when they were entertaining.    Our solution was to design and build a custom bookcase that had a sliding hidden door built into the back of the bookcase nook!  The resulting design served three purposes.  First, it allowed the kids play are to be "hidden" when the parents were entertaining, second it served as a beautiful design element for the family room and third and most importantly it created a mysterious and exciting play area for their beloved children!  
Once in the playroom, the children are greeted with a fun Crayola theme! The room is complete with craft table, stools, a chalkboard wall, built in storage, book shelves for their favorite books (mounted at a height that makes it easy for them to access), seating area and custom magnetized hanging frames ready to showcase the children creations!  To bring the Crayola theme home, we finished the space with primary and secondary colors on the walls, drapery, ceiling, light fixture, stools and rug!
