“This is one of my favorite rooms,” says Jeff of the playroom. “It’s fun, and not just for kids.” Overscaled pendant lighting adds edginess, flanking artwork by Los Angeles artist Matthew Hall. The painting is the lyrics to Madonna’s “Little Star.” The design began with the printed linen at the window. The sofa is covered in a gold chenille. The khaki-gold feel-good rug is forgiving.
