Whether you’re adapting a sophisticated, child-free zone for the arrival of a first baby or starting from scratch because your family has outgrown your current home, Children’s Spaces from Zero to Ten is the book you need.
Judith Wilson shows how stylish homes can be adapted for children without surrendering order and good taste, while also ensuring that children have their own special spaces to explore and enjoy. Children’s needs may seem obvious, but in fact their demands change with alarming speed. Children’s Spaces from Zero to Ten helps you to plan all the practical aspects of children’s rooms and provides plenty of affordable ideas and inspiration when it comes to their design and decoration.
With rooms for children between birth and ten years old, and chapters on babies’ rooms, rooms for girls (how to cope with the pink flowery phase), rooms for boys (how to avoid the military look) and shared bedrooms (how to create a room that works for both boys and girls). There are also chapters on practical storage and areas that children and adults share – bathrooms, play areas, eating areas and outside space.
Children’s Spaces from Zero to Ten contains a wealth of inspiration drawn from the homes of real families, with real kids, which amply proves that children and great design can happily co-exist without compromising on style.
