Create a unique bedroom for your child
A bedroom is a happy haven that reflects your child’s evolving personality. From a bright boudoir to an adventurer’s playden, here are some dream designs

Spirited and playful, but also functional and practical. Traditional or modern, formal or whimsical, your child’s bedroom is not just where she will lay her head to sleep at night or play during the day. It’s not just a place to snuggle up with a book or take time outs. It’s her private kingdom. No matter how large or small, shared with siblings or not, it is the one place in the house where your child’s dreams are meant to be savoured. It is also the space your child will remember for the rest of her life as first defining her, reflecting who she was and who she will become.
Parents now have more decorating options than ever before. We can set the stage with every conceivable combination of paint and pattern. Whether decorated with flea-market finds, modern art on the walls or maps of the world, your child’s room represents more than high style. It represents parents’ devotion to celebrating that particular stage in their child’s life. As much as you might become attached to the design, allowing a bedroom to grow with its occupant is a necessity. As soon as your child progresses from the nursery, his life dictates a redesign, and it’s not long before the role of parents changes from decorator to bystander.
