From the Inside Flap
The best children?s rooms are so much more than just a place to sleep?they provide a comfortable space for play and study, offer privacy when it?s needed, and encourage creativity or just quiet contemplation. A child?s room should also express the personality of its occupant, or occupants, in a way that celebrates their unique interests and talents.
For more than a decade Susan Salzman?s Los Angeles custom furniture design firm, Little Folk Art, has been providing furniture, accessories, and design consultations for some of the freshest children?s rooms and play spaces around. Her fanciful room designs delight not only their young occupants, but their parents as well, with bold, unexpected colors and motifs that are whimsical but never cloying. These are rooms with an attitude, as individual as the kids who inhabit them. Design cues come from sources as diverse as a child?s extensive dinosaur collection, a favorite picture book, a vintage fabric, or an antique baseball. Each room is designed to grow and evolve as the needs and interests of the child do?without requiring an exhaustive overhaul.
In Rooms to Grow In Susan Salzman also addresses some of the most common challenges parents face in furnishing a child?s room, from maximizing storage in order to minimize clutter and mess to carving individual sanctuaries out of a shared room and outfitting an infant?s room on a budget. She offers insights on creating playrooms the whole family will want to enjoy, and explains how to make the transition from nursery to toddler?s space with just a few key changes.
Full of fresh ideas that will be at home with any decor or design direction, Rooms to Grow In is a much-needed resource for parents who don?t want to compromise their own good taste while indulging their child?s. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
