This sweet girls’ playroom in Cincinnati is the work of Reusch Interior Design, and it’s designed to look much larger than it really is (look at how narrow the space is!). The sweet window ledge and little table for tea parties are perfect for hours of dreaming and playing, while the chalkboard wall makes for a stylish art space.
