THis is a great post! It looks great and lots of room for imagination. I think that I would add baskets of things your child can collect like pine cones, stones, and leaves , or moss. Bring nature inside like hanging plants and trees inside. I think that Waldorf has gone a little elitist and gotten away from its roots in nature. More and more I see so many nice wooden toys but the are in a solid form unlike a large piece of bark that can become anything from a dish to a gnome/fairy bed. The things my children like the most are different shaped wooden tree branches that are sanded and blunt cut so they can stand. Moss is also wonderful. And I know it is messy but having real tins full of oats, flower petals, and bird seed that can be poured adn mixed are great discovery play essentials. Good work mama!

It looks great to me. I must admit I'm jealous because I don't even have large enough space in my house to have a playstand.

I love the playroom! I think I will post pics of mine, although it will have to wait until my Mother leaves since the room serves as a guest room and the couch is pulled out right now.

I'd love to see pictures of other playrooms, if anyone is willing....

Thank you for sharing the pictures of your beautiful room. I have a small preschool and hope to have my classroom look as beautiful as that someday. I try to make small changes as I can afford them (this is only my second year). Your room gave me inspiration to keep making those changes! Thanks!

I'll share.

Looking into the room
Playstand
Playstand left
Playstand right
Bookshelf - we have a bigger bookshelf w/more in the living room
Shelves
Flower tent
Doll pram & stuffed animal box
Activity table
Dress-up rack, dress-up box, play kitchen

To the OP - I love your playroom! That playstand playsilk is great - did you make it yourself? I also really love the house thing with all the playsilks clipped to it. What a fantastic idea! I know my girls would love something like that.

I really enjoyed your pictures. I'm trying to finish up my kid's playroom and I am always looking for ideas!

Do you know if there is a magic cabin outlet in VT now? I would LOVE to visit if you know where it is!!!

Oh my!! Looove that little house! Wondering if I might just be able to make my own (DS would love a project with such a wonderous result ).
What treatment did you do on the wall? Looks nice. Thinking about Lazure ( a woodsy mural) on one wall...

Very motivating, thanks!!

Darcy you can totally made a rainbow house,it looks so simple to make
all we did to the walls is paint them an off white, we wanted to do more but we are renting this place and the military will be moving us in a year or so...so we didnt want to get too involved,kwim?

I think it would be a great project, inexpensive and pretty easy. I am going to look more closely at it to get a real sense of the construction, and try to mimick it as closely as possible. I'll post plans if I am successful.

Funny I was just thinking of completely rehauling (re-doing) my 4 year old daughter, and 3 year old son's shared room. So I was going to post to get some inspiration on making the children's bedroom more Waldorf. I have plenty of acorn caps, pinecones, stones, rocks, wood (dh and I have a tree service) but one thing I am cringing on is the replacement of their bedroom carpet. I want to put wide plank pine flooring down but have no idea the cost, or how much this will set us back. I think though for now if I just take a look at all of your wonderful photos then my mind will start turning

Thanks for the sharing of your personal photos of the playroom setup.

No way, me too! I mean that there was an outlet here . . . but I never saw a rainbow house
(you aren't in SE VA by any chance are you??)

I'm working on slowly converting my dd's space. The nasty old carpet is still there, but we're using a comforter like a big area rug to cover it, LOL. The main non-waldorf thing now is a pink collapsable Disney Princess playhouse . . . but hey, it was free which is far more in line with our budget than the Waldorf ones LOL.
I'll post some of our St. Patrick's day visit from the Leprechauns pics where you can see their room. Oh, and there are still plastic Disney fairies but, again, free so I deal with them until we can slowly do the old replace-and-disappear trick :

2+twins, where did you find that lovely bookshelf?
The room is very nicely done.

OP, I am really inspired by your photo, so beautiful, and am going to make some changes for my ds room now!

Can anyone else post photos to give us more wonderful ideas?
