ABCs of interior design for children

Kip Farmer writes an informative article at Courier Press entitled ABCs of interior design for children. She He writes
The challenge of creating a child's personal space is among the most freeing of all design experiences.

Approach your child's space as a designer with a very special client. Observe your child playing, ask her questions, and remember when you were a child yourself. A little childlike thinking will lead to a unique space. By all means, think outside the toy box when decorating this important area.
She He offers a number "ABCs" for decorating a child's room and here are a few of my favorites.

• Framing your child's artwork adds color and motion into the space, while building a little self-esteem and pride in his room.

• Quit buying sets of furniture for your child's room. Mix styles to develop a more individual space.

• Walls are (sooner or later) made to be scribbled on, so paint a few with chalkboard paint to make an appropriate area for this creative impulse.

Read Mr. Farmer's article for all 26 tips.
