Good Design With Kids in Mind

Our Work | October 17, 2010

I was always one of those people who told myself that my house would look great no matter what. I would teach my kids to respect things and nothing would ever break. My sweet baby boy has now entered the age where he is getting into everything! This is how my living room typically looks. That giant exersaucer lives in that spot. The coffee table has now become Jett’s favorite playground and I find that I am constantly picking up those balls in the silver bowl. 
I find them everywhere. 
I am learning that having kids means adjusting your expectations. However, I still believe you can have a beautiful home and still make it kid-friendly. This upcoming week a panel of experts is going to give some of their advice and tips on all kinds of different kid/design subjects. 
Meet the contributers.
