Whether you have one child or a whole host of little ones, it is almost inevitable that your house will be taken over by toys, books, clothes, and countless art supplies at some time. Most of us try to combat the mess by sequestering our kids’ playtime to one or two rooms in the house. Other parents, however, embrace the mess in a super cool way. Instead of hiding all signs of tiny life, they incorporate play and lounge space for their little ones in really cool ways. All of these living rooms are fun, stylish, and kid-friendly all at once!
