Travis offers thrifty, style-conscious home decorators great ideas for achieving maximum impact at minimum cost. In her newest book, Travis' imagination soars as she takes on the joys and challenges of designing bedrooms, playrooms and study spaces for kids of all ages. Travis advises parents to get the creative juices flowing by listening to their kids and explains how to incorporate their suggestions in living spaces that are comfortable, safe, and appropriate for a child's changing needs and interests. In step-by-step, fully illustrated projects that parents and children can work on together, she presents wonderful ways to use paint, fabric, paper and other inexpensive materials to fashion everything from a little girl's room adorned with angels and rainbows to a boy's playroom topped with a camouflage ceiling.
