About Judith Wilson
Judith Wilson is an interiors writer and stylist and former Decorating Editor of Homes & Gardens. Since the arrival of her two children, she has been a freelance contributor to many publications including the Telegraph Magazine and House & Garden.
Having a baby, toddler or child intrude on your designer-designed home could be a nightmare: all those cream furnishings, ornaments, clean walls. A bit like a red rag to a bull! But in this lavishly photographed book by well-known interiors writer and stylist Judith Wilson, you will find valuable advice and inspiration on how to plan your home around and including your offspring. Whether you want to share all your rooms with your children or want sanctuaries for both yourself and them, Judith's ideas offer a wide range of styles from classic to contemporary, traditional to funky. Storage ideas for the toys and plethora of items that are associated with childhood and child-raising are novel and sensible, guaranteed to last a child's life from infancy to their teenage years with a minimum of adaptation. Full of common sense and understanding of the problems that can be faced throughout a child's life, this is a fresh look at a familiar subject, making a welcome change from the usual child-oriented design ideas. - Lucy Watson
