For a “homekeeping” and design maven like Martha Stewart, having grandchildren must be a dream come true. The clothes! The adorable toys! The little things that just beg to be organized in cute little boxes and baskets!
Stewart’s daughter Alexis (46) channeled the best of her mom’s abilities when she designed the playroom in her Manhattan apartment, shared by her two children, Jude (17 mo.) and Truman (5 mo.). The elder Stewart clearly approves of her daughter’s handiwork: she’s featured her grandchildren’s playroom in the September 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living.
Martha herself is pictured on the magazine’s cover, chilling in the playroom with Jude – which is exactly what Alexis was shooting for when she put the room together. She says:
“[It's] where we all spend the most time hanging out! I like that it’s both great for kids and pleasing to adults.”
Alexis is the former host of the Hallmark Channel’s Whatever, Martha, a show that poked fun at her mom’s passion for home projects.
