Kids' Rooms is an inspirational and practical guide for parents who want to create personalized living spaces for their 4- to 13-year-olds. (Nurseries will be coming for little tots next season.) Divided into two main sections, the book's beautiful photographs and clear descriptions show how decorative changes to your child's room need not be difficult or expensive. The front half is a discussion of the various components that need to be considered when laying out a room. Here the author considers elements such as color, lighting, and furniture, and covers everything from wallpapers to nightlights. The second half contains 15 examples of great rooms. From a collector's room to a small room for two, there is something here for everyone. Eschewing the fixed environment of theme-based rooms, Levy also encourages parents to draw upon their child's imagination for inspiration. Her ideas are both easy to achieve and simple to change: most require no special installation skills and many are non-permanent, allowing these spaces to be easily transformed as youngsters grow. Kids' Rooms should break new ground in this exploding market, and should do a great job of paving the way for the follow-up Nurseries.
