I am beyond excited today to have received my copy of Susanna Salk's Room for Children with foreward by Kelly Wearstler! I placed an order for this book after the first of the year and it was finally released last week, arriving on my doorstep today... It was well worth the wait! The book showcases work by some designers such as Charlotte Moss, Amanda Nisbet, Kelly Wearstler and Jamie Drake. This book has such an eclectic mix of ideas and inspirations!
The rooms are amazing and offer every design style from contemporary, whimsical, traditional and formal.
In an article in the NY Times, Salk talks about how she noticed when she was special projects editor for House & Garden magazine in 2003 children's room were being featured in shelter magazines and that was something that was unheard of ten years earlier. Salk said in part the trend came with it "being hip to have young children", "adults with lots of disposable income" and "celebrities with kids." I would agree that all of those play a part but the disposable income helps a lot. Of course there are a ways to get these looks for less! Here a few shots to tease you....
