Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These books are aimed at anyone interested in designing children's bedrooms and kid-friendly houses. Jordan considers every room of the home when discussing children's needs, including bathrooms, storage rooms, and outdoor and indoor play areas, and also shows how to incorporate children's activities into the family room and kitchen. She also presents a larger range of bedrooms for children from babies to teenagers than is found in Jemima Mills's From a House to a Home (LJ 1/01). L vy considers all aspects of designing a child's bedroom, including lighting, furniture, floor and wall coverings, and window treatments. This book's strength is the large number of color photographs depicting designer-created rooms, accompanied by a discussion of how the child's needs and desires have been incorporated into the design. Projects are interspersed throughout, but illustrations are not included. A list of resources is provided in both books. The Kidspace Idea Book is recommended for its overall treatment of decorating for children, with Kids' Rooms as a well-illustrated companion if needed. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
