The Rainbow Room

This is her play room. I started calling it the rainbow room because there are crystals hanging in the windows and when the light hits just right, they cast rainbows all over the room. While we were having work done on our house, the rainbow room was out of out of commission. Now all the work is done and she once again has access to it. We are rarely home when the magic hour hits, so we keep missing the rainbow. Maybe I'll add photos of it later if I'm able to catch it in action. 
On the right wall are wooden storage with plastic bins that she can easily pull out and dump all over the floor. These are just the right size and also double as a table top for her to play on. I switch out the toys on top every few weeks to keep her interest. The table and chairs is from Ikea kids. Burbank has North America's largest Ikea, it's fun to go and wander the aisles, especially on hot days. The bear rug is from The land of nod, we got it before she was born. 
On the far wall is her "Reading Rainbow." Anyone else obsessed with that show as a kid? The book shelves are picture ledges from Ikea  that we spray painted. 
I love this book display, it reminds me of my grade school classrooms. It's double sided and on wheels. She can't move it herself but I switch the books out from time to time. I can't find the specific link to this model but this one is similar.
The wall is covered in cork and I'm hoping we can hang her artwork there. In the meantime, it's got prints and posters she likes. The color spectrum on the wall is a piece of wrapping paper.
Plus a corner where her current mail is on display. After a month or so I change it and it goes into a box marked letters. Cat has claws from Hatch Show Print. Mini starry night painting on wood panel by Genevieve Santos. Felt rainbow banner from the bees knees on etsy. The girls print is from Tuesday Bassen. It's sold out but there's also a card of the same design. The illustration of her as a baby is from Lucy Knisley. 
As always, happy to answer any questions! Just leave them in the comments.
