My daughter’s shared a bedroom until the ages of 14 and 11.(This would mean, until 6 months ago.)Their styles, color preferences could not be more dissimilar.I have the daughter who loves Pokemon, Bakugan, dogs, Harry Potter and the color blue.My youngest loves Barbie, Princesses, white, fluffy kittens and just about everything pink.I did what I could to create a symbiotic room for the two of them short of drawing a line down the middle and saying ‘Pretend the other side of the room isn’t here, OK?’ Now that they have their own space I’ve been looking for inspiration on how to create a lovely space while keeping the decorating costs reasonable.
The book Room for Children, written by Susanna Salk, contributor on NBC’s Today Show and iVillage.com, provides sweet inspiration through attractive photos, eye-of-an-Interior-Decorator tips, and a conscientious reminder that this is the children’s room, ask them what they like.Not only will you find wonderful inspiration from Susanne Salk’s children’s room designs, she includes her special touches for nurseries.Oh, how I wish I had this book when my girls were born!These nurseries use items that aren’t your typical infant furniture findings. Susanne incorporates gorgeous pieces that you would find in a formal dining room.Chandelier over the crib?Sure!Why not?(It’s really a beautiful, serene look).
Susanne Salk shows you rooms that are creative and functional.This book provides delightful inspiration for fellow Interior Decorators and for those of us trying our hand to achieve that professional touch.
