Lucy Liu’s Son Has The Most Stylish Playroom You’ve Ever Seen!
With her son entering into toddlerhood, actress Lucy Liu knew it was time she transformed a sparse room in her NYC apartment into a playroom for two-year-old Rockwell. The actress teamed up with designer Nicole Fisher of The Studio At One King’s Lane to create a sophisticated space with a soothing color palette, tons of storage, seating and a craft area.

“It needed to be sophisticated — the kind of place where you wouldn’t mind having a few friends over for a glass of wine,” says Nicole on the design. To achieve that, a neutral palette was enhanced with warmer tones and textures.
A reading nook set off to the side features two nesting tables and a mid century-style lamp. Subtle pops of color are brought in with the throw pillows.
A tribal-style mask on the wall was hung to reflect Lucy’s desire for a space representative of multiple cultures.
Even Lucy seems to be enjoying the play tent placed between a pair of windows and sofas.
Plush toys are housed in a striped basket, keeping things organized without compromising style.
A patterned wallpaper is the perfect backdrop to the colorful toys displayed on clean-lined shelves, which evidently steal the show.
Open bins keep toys within easy reach, while low shelves holding paint and chalk flank either side of a kraft paper station, encouraging craft time.
Some of Rockwell’s artwork is hung with colorful clothespins on triangle garlands, adding a personal touch.
Here’s Lucy with designer Nicole, posing in front of their finished project.
The colors of the Moroccan baskets hung above the fireplace complement the rest of this mantel’s decor.
