If you are starting a room from scratch and furnishing a nursery for a new baby, it may be tempting to go for the full-on coordinated look available from high-end stores. Changing tables, cribs and and dressers, complete with matching rugs, curtains and wallpaper may be the ideal solution for the first few years, but they are expensive, soon outgrown and, when the design choices have already been made for you, they provide little scope for individuality. It is far better (and more economical in the long run) to start off with a few good pieces of basic furniture, plain walls and ceiling, and a simple floor covering. You can then introduce blocks of color and pattern by means of the soft furnishings, bedding and accessories. These can easily be changed and updated, the furniture can be repainted when a new look is demanded.
Designing a kid's room can be a bit difficult; most of my younger clients want ponies (real ones). The question is how do you let them have their input and not destroy the decor in the rest of your home? And how do you make a design that can last through the years? This can be the best experience for the family or a horrible disaster. Having said all that, my favorite clients are children; I love their enthusiasm, pure joy and creativity.
Lets face it, it isn't an easy job getting your kids to tidy their bedroom and if they have a play room too then getting them to keep two rooms clean can be an absolute nightmare. If you don't have the right storage in the first place then it not only discourages your child from putting things away but makes it virtually impossible for them to do so. Fortunately there are some innovative storage ideas that look great and will last for years too.
