Book Review: Dream Rooms For Children: Inspiring Spaces for Sleep, Study, and Play by Susanna Salk

Dream Rooms for Children by Susanna Salk, Rizzoli New York, 2021

A decade after her first book on Rooms for Children, Susanna Salk has curated a natural successor in Dream Rooms for Children. All of the rooms in this book bring fresh high-style and creative design ideas for rooms dedicated to the youngest members of the household, and some interesting and clever options you can use in any room! 

Dream Rooms for Children takes kid's spaces with creative seriousness. Whether the room is intended for a newborn, toddler, first grader, or teenager, the rooms shown throughout the 240 pages of the book show the endless possibilities of imaginative design. 

The book showcases work by top-notch designers, including Fawn Galli, Katie Ridder, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Miles Redd, Amy Lau, and Celerie Kemble. The diversity of styles range from formal to modern to fairytale whimsy - each creating a vision of childhood at its best. 

In addition to sleeping spaces, the book explores playrooms and study spaces, engaging the mind to think creatively when crafting spaces for children while keeping them stylish, functional, and fun.
