The room you would have done a thousand paper rounds for as a child? You'll probably find it here in designer Susan Salk's wonderful new book.
text by elizabeth bentley
When it comes to designing the perfect room for your child, inspiration is at hand. Susan Salk, New York designer and former projects editor of House & Garden has collected over 200 photographs showcasing some of the best kids’ rooms around the world. Room for Children: Stylish Spaces for Sleep and Play is awash with fabulous, magical creations for babies, toddlers and older children.
Salk selected interiors which were practical as well as beautiful. “The rooms had to feel as much about the children and the family as they did about the designer,” she says. “The designers’ work I pulled from were all those whom I admired immensely.”
The collection ranges widely across countries, ages and tastes. Salk also reminds us that a lot can be achieved with a small budget. “Find some jazzy paint colour, a great rug and some elegant curtains or fabric to create the special nooks they love to sleep, play and work in.”
