Marije's tips for children:
1.& ldquo; First, a tip for the whole house, I notice that many couples are going to change the entire home once they have children. They put a cloth on the expensive sofa, vases go of the windowsill, and so on. Eventually they no longer live in a place they like, but in a place that is designed for children. My tip: Keep your home practical and beautiful. For example, buy beautiful, large closets with ample space for children's toys. You can even make a nice combination as in this photo. And children can best get used to a vase on the windowsill or candles on the table. Often they find themselves also great fun & rdquo;!
2.& ldquo; Children get very much stimuli. Beginning first with cleaning up toys! Then you already have a much better overview. Use an old chest or pointing the closet in the toy cupboard. It gives peace and structure & rdquo;.
3.& ldquo; I always ask my clients if they have a nice, old cot or crib in the family. This crib is the base of the chamber and possibly get a lick of paint. It is very nice to combine something old with something new & rdquo;.
4.& ldquo; If you choose to print wallpaper, like the rest calmly. If you choose a less busy wallpaper, then play with the colors of the rest. Color of the wallpaper, you can keep coming back into rugs, lamps and paintings & rdquo;.
5.& ldquo; Make the room personal! For example it is quite nice if your son or daughter paints a painting for their new brother or sister. Or write your own poem for your new child and list the poem. Things like that make a room beautiful & rdquo;
6.& ldquo; see foreign lifestyle magazines such as Elle foreign, for the latest trends. And get inspiration from blogs! Magazines are sometimes quite behind on blogs & rdquo;.
7.& ldquo; Trends are fun, but try to purchase timeless furniture. With accessories you can follow the trends. Nice colored blankets and baskets for children are an example of this, & rdquo;.
