Have you ever noticed how often children gravitate back to drawing pictures of houses? Put a pen and paper in their hand and sooner or later, up pops a few pages of quasi-victoriana, or classic prairie four-square. So why not encourage them toward something a little more mid-century modern? The Modern Home Idea Journal and Coloring Book might be just the thing to introduce the kids to a more modern design aesthetic.
While this is marketed as a coloring book for adults, we would definitely give it to design-curious children. It has just 12 pre-printed coloring pages, but we think that kids would be interested in using the 25 grid pages for designing their own fantastical floor plans. At $24.00, we wouldn't be handing this off to a toddler, but for an older child, the Modern Home Idea Journal and Coloring Book might be a way to let them know that you take their design ideas and aspirations seriously. Matched with the Creative Interiors Idea Journal and Coloring book, it makes a great gift for the budding Phillippe Starck in your family.
