Childish Style

Living with children and good design.

I’ve talked before about how children bring so much into our lives, but not always a sense of style. Despite our pull to please we need to create spaces we grown-ups love and can also be lessons in good taste for our young.

When I saw the recent image feature in Lonny profiling Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s NYC apartment, I thought ahh – yes, this is how it’s done.

Tom and Gisele’s  beautiful apartment reminded me of some of my favourite family-friendly spaces created by the stylish. Great inspiration for us all – living with or without little ones.
