Pajama lounges are having a serious moment and they're the dreamiest home trend of all time — there, we said it. If you haven't heard of a space like this before, it's essentially an upstairs living room that's very private and the perfect place to gather as a family after rolling out of bed in your (you guessed it) pajamas.
This concept is part of a growing trend of , where it's more secluded. "They're designed to be a place where the family can gather and hang out away from the high-traffic areas of the home," Paul Fischman, principal designer at Choeff Levy Fischman in Miami, told . Still can't picture what we're talking about? This Massachusetts room, designed by Frank Roop, is one strikingly gorgeous example of a pajama lounge.
But this space, which is also known as a "feasting room," has more perks than just having a close couch to collapse on come Saturday morning. If you're hosting a few friends or your monthly book club, your children or spouse can hang out in the pajama lounge without having to miss out on their fun.
When it comes to designing this space, since it's not a place guests frequently visit, you can get creative and experiment. But we'll say right now that a good soft and cozy accessories are a must. "Having a variety of comfortable, low seating would be best," Lisa McDennon, interior designer and founder of Lisa McDennon Design in Laguna Beach, California told . "Think pillows, poufs, and lots of cozy throws to bundle up in on cold days."
From there, it's important to make sure the space can serve multiple uses for your family. Include a couple desks if you want your children to do their homework in this room or a bookshelf full of games if you want to use it to host game nights. You'll use this multi-purpose space more if if checks multiple boxes for your loved ones — and they'll thank you for it later.
