like these rooms to be fairly transitional, so I think of ways to accomplish that. For instance, a certain color scheme can often grow into something else as the child grows up. Most importantly, as with any design, there are really no rules. Whether you’re designing for an adult or a child, just be as personal as possible. JSG: The most important thing to keep in mind when designing for children is the child! They usually have an idea of how and what they want/need in their rooms and it is my job to try to understand what they want and engage them in helping me with the design. If they are scared of fish, I’m not going to do a fish mural. On the other hand, if they are into video games or Darth Vader, I would like to design their room around that theme. Safety is another important element to keep in mind with kids, an example would be the strings from window coverings (drapes, Roman shades, blinds etc.)
