I spend a lot of time on Pinterest. It's my new hobby. I have MANY boards. I get giddy when I see that someone "likes or "re-pins" something I've posted. I feel accomplished and validated. I know that my house can look like this. The images on the web prove it. Here are a couple of images that I found for playrooms.
The first is obviously a girl's room, but neutral out the colors, make the mirrors into cars or rockets, change the chandelier and VOILA! I can see my boys sitting quietly in the chairs playing with their puzzles or reading their books.

I think this is precious. All their books lined up on the shelf and some artwork on the walls. Perhaps their toys are organized and placed into these drawers. Shoes are lined up and the rug is clean.
