“Decorate a kid’s room?” you ask. Sounds counterintuitive, right? Childhood passes in the blink of an eye, so why agonize over a bassinet? In a few months it’s a crib, and before you know it the toddler needs a real bed. And wait until the first time you see a “No Adults Allowed Without
Permission” sign on your progeny’s door. You’ll turn on your heels, with deeply hurt feelings, convinced that it was all for naught. But really, decorating a kid’s room is all about fun. When else can you think about a carpet shaped like a zoo animal, consider a tepee in the bedroom, or imagine sleeping under a green gingham canopy? Frilly and pink are not the only choices for girls’ rooms, and boys have more options than sheets festooned with cowboys or astronauts. Depending on the child (and your taste), there’s a whole host of products to choose from. Decorating a kid’s room? It’s practically child’s play.
