Let’s face it, we design-conscious homeowners love our homes. Every inch of our home has been carefully considered, every accessory painstakingly chosen, down to the drawer pulls and the toilet roll holders. Heck, you probably spent days agonising over which shade of white you should paint the living room.
We lavish so much attention and care on our home because it’s an extension of our identity. Which is why, for that group of us who are still sitting on the fence about having children, the changes wrought by the presence of a child in our pristine home are a major deciding influence.
Don’t get me wrong, I love kids. But I also love having my own space designed just the way I like it, without having to worry about getting marker on the white walls or careless hands sweeping my handmade ceramic vases to the floor.
