Whether you're adapting a child-free zone for the arrival of a baby or starting from scratch because your family has moved, Judith Wilson has the answer. This bestselling book (the original edition sold 80,000 copies) shows how homes can be adapted for children without surrendering order and good taste, while at the same time giving children their own spaces to enjoy. With inspiration drawn from real homes, teamed with photographs by Debi Treloar, this book proves that children, style, and great design can happily coexist.

Comments: Awesome Ideas This is a truly beautiful book. And it's about time it came along. No more circus animals painted on walls and other run of the mill decorating ideas. These are beautiful - modern ideas for creating spaces for children. Look out Martha Stewart.

Comments: Appeals to all tastes This book is fantastic, it has a wide range of contemporary, classical and eclectic designs (with a unique twist). This book is overflowing with great unusual ideas, however reading it just once won't do the book any justice. The stockist and suppliers page at the back of the book is invaluable, as most items in the book is easily accessible (eg:IKEA). If you like plain, boring frilly bedrooms, then this book is NOT for you!

Comments: Still inspires Even though this book is a couple of years old, I still find it inspiring. Debi Treloar has a way of photographing everyday life so the beauty of it stands out. Judith Wilsons text is helpful and with lots of useful, practical advice. She knows children and links this knowledge very well with ideas that are not only decorative, but also functional. The style is mainly modern and urban, but followers of romantic country will also find some inspiration. Most of us like a bit of both - and maybe that's why I find this book so enjoyable.
