Creative Family Home, Ashlyn Gibson
Imaginative and original spaces for modern family living
Contemporary family homes need to work hard and play hard, meeting the needs of style-conscious parents, lively toddlers and everyone else in between.
In Creative Family Home, Ashlyn Gibson explores the heart and soul of thirteen specially photographed homes that capture the zeitgeist in family living and celebrate the magic of childhood.
Whether you have just started a family or have a tribe of pre-teens, Creative Family Home tackles both the practical and the decorative issues and paves the way for a fun, hard-working and creative home that grows and adapts with your kids.
The book starts with Creative Family Style, focusing on the varying demands of family living. There are ideas for Using space imaginative/y, Print and pattern, Storage and organization and Homework and creative zones, while Chi/dren's creativity and Collections and displays suggest brilliant ways to showcase treasured artworks and prized collections.
Next, in Creative Family Homes, Ashlyn visits real-life homes that are notable for their fresh, irreverent take on modern family living and draws inspiration from their different approaches to the multitude of demands that characterize modern family life.
Creative Family Home celebrates modern family life, where children, from babies to teenagers, are given the freedom to express themselves and to develop their individuality within the context of an imaginative and creative family home.
