|Many parents think decorating is something that happens after the kids grow up. But the anticipation of chocolate smears, juice stains, and rough play doesn’t have to resign parents to a home devoid of style.
Living with Kids is the book families with children have been waiting for. It goes beyond creating kid-specific spaces like nurseries and playrooms to decorating and organizing the entire home to help adults and kids coexist in harmony—and in style. The key: establishing centers of activity for everything, from play and relaxation to grooming and schoolwork. Whether readers are anticipating a new baby or living with a teenager, this book offers clever solutions for establishing an environment that can adapt to the ever- changing needs of growing children.
Useful tips and sidebars suggest great ways to store and organize kids’ stuff so it doesn’t take over the house, to create multiuse rooms that make the most of the space, essential products and accessories that stand up to the wear and tear of kids yet appeal to an adult sensibility, and more.
Realistic and creative, Living with Kids addresses a timeless challenge with savvy, modern solutions.
