CREATIVITY: Imagination is more important than knowledge, a wise man once said. So give your kids ample opportunity to create.I like sliding doors with blackboard material and chalk so kids can draw to their hearts' content--and, then start over the next day.Modular furniture can keep a room flexible to accommodate different activities...and, the kids can move it around to create their own layouts. Bulletin boards, mop boards, space for posters and personal artwork... it's all good.
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.How do you get your child involved and keep a good design? Start with asking questions, write down everything. Questions like, what kinds of things would you like to see in your room? You already know their interests (cars, ballerinas, or mod teenage decor), find out how they see them in the room. What favorite colors? Get ready for this one, they usually like bold bright colors, write them down and show them some colors and see which color really is pink to them.
