Functional meets fun when shelves are used in a play room to store kids’ books, board games, and toys. Create a studious yet stylish vibe by lining the top of the shelving with a collection of vintage globes and maps. To avoid a mess of crayons, papers, and rogue game pieces, install pull-out drawers to hide what you’d rather keep hidden.
