go vertical when designing w kid, and want nice things!
Use walls and high spaces. Fragile vases and delicate table lamps may be out when you have young kids in the house, but you only need to look up to find your new design playground. Bold, deep wall color; fancy sconces and chandeliers; artwork; wall-mounted sculpture and any other wall decor pieces you can lay your hands on are fair game. Have a big collection of breakable trinkets? Install high shelving over doorways and windows to display your treasures out of reach of small hands.
