Blogging NYT: Integrating Children Into Your Decor

We read with high interest an article in yesterday's NY Times H&G section reporting on design-minded parents and their differing philosophies and techniques for integrating children in to their homes.

The article focuses on parents between the ages of 35 to 44, who coincidentally are the most dedicated consumers of furniture. These couples also are more likely to have lived the "double income, no kids” lifestyle for many years prior to becoming parents.

The couples interviewed run the full spectrum - those who gave up entire rooms to transform in to dedicated playrooms to those who refused to babyproof in order to maintain their aesthetic.

Ohdeedoh readers, we want to hear from you. Did you see yourself in one of the interviewed couples? What is your design philosophy on integrating children in to the home?
