Gwyneth Paltrow's Kids' Playroom Is So Gwyneth Paltrow

As the guru of lifestyle brand Goop, it's no surprise Gwyneth Paltrow possesses a penchant for organizing. The pristine pantry in her Los Angeles home made headlines earlier this year as fans oohed and aahed over the custom set-up.

Those perfectly-arranged cans are so soothing to look at, don't you think? Paltrow must have loved the outcome too, because she enlisted the Nashville-based organizing service The Home Edit yet again to revamp her Hamptons retreat.

Founders Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin paid a visit to the star's beach house and restyled not only her pantry, but also the playroom. Take a look:

The spotless space looks perfect — maybe even too perfect? Celebrities live another life, but any playdate in the real world would turn that meticulous room into a tornado of board game pieces and building blocks.

The white cabinets? Scuffed in minutes. Forget buying patterned toys and books — if it doesn't fit into the rainbow color scheme, there's no place for it here. And that tiny loveseat doesn't look comfortable for sleepovers in the slightest.

Although Apple (now 13!) is almost all grown up, Gwyneth's 11-year-old son Moses would have a tough time doing school projects in here. Do the "zones for reading, games, art, crafts and science" include a drop cloth? We hope so!

While we love the look and dream of our own kids' playroom looking like this, it's probably better left to the A-list. No matter how pretty a white carpet looks in the showroom, families without a full-time cleaning crew should probably skip the stain magnet. Sigh.

Even if the space isn't practical for the non-Goop people of the world, everyone can still enjoy looking at Shearer and Teplin's pleasingly-perfect designs. The pro organizers also tackled the house's pantry, with equally enviable results:

Here's just the inspiration we need to try using clear canisters (yet again).
