Fabrics used in the Kids’ Craft Room carry over into the Kitchenette for easy, breezy curtains and cushions. Chairs and a table in the alcove invite kids and their friends to enjoy a beverage and freshly popped popcorn after playing a board game or creating a construction paper masterpiece.

Colorful Fiestaware in crayon colors extends the creative theme and fits the traditional yet modern theme of the Showhouse. First produced in 1936 by the Homer Laughlin China Company in West Virginia, this American classic still wows with bright, vibrant color and sturdy practicality. Whimsical patterns on kitchen towels and fun kitchen accessories make for a happy space.

Kids’ Craft Room
Taking cues from the peacock blue, dark blue, olive green and gold palette used in the Guest Room down the hall, the Kids’ Craft Room adds a splash of coral for fun. Low work tables with floor cushions encourage kids to sit and draw or paint, cut and glue.
There’s plenty of storage for art supplies. A fabric-covered bulletin board shows off the work of budding artists. Fabric banners drape across the window, and handmade paper mobiles hang from the ceiling.
