This is a fun books with many good ideas. I enjoyed the "fantasy" aspect of designing a child's room. The main setback for us with executing many of the designs is budget limitations. Also, be aware that this is the same book as Sunset's "Ideas for Great Kids' Rooms". We bought both not realizing they are the same book.

I brought this book when I was planning a nursery for my little girl. It gives lots of realistic ideas budget wise and safety wise. There are lots of photos and it gives good tips on how to plan a room for your child that he and you will not be sick of after a year or two.

The photos in this book look like they were shot in the 80's. Hideous wallpaper, ugly paint colors, and gross fabric. Also this book is almost page by page an exact copy of the early edition entitled "Ideas for Great Kid's Rooms" ISBN 0376017546.

Yes there are a few good ideas in this book so I gave it two stars instead of one, but unless you can get it used under two bucks, don't waste your money.

Comments: Great ideas
This book is jam-packed with great ideas. Some of the rooms are just unbelievable.

The colors, patterns and storage ideas are very helpful. And having all of the photos helps with getting the kids involved in picking out what they would like in their rooms.

My oldest daughter likes window seats, and we saw a bed in here with a curved entrance made like a window seat, and she really liked it. So, I made her one similiar to the one in the book and she really loves her bed.
