Feathering the Nest
Tracy Hutson's Earth-Friendly Guide to Decorating Your Baby's Room
Hardcover      ISBN: 1584797452
Tracy Hutson is an acclaimed interior designer. She’s also the loving mother of two little boys. When designing their bedroom, she knew precisely what she wanted: a nursery that would be mentally stimulating yet emotionally comforting. A place that would maximize safety, shielding adventurous toddlers from harm. And a room that would be built and decorated with a healthy dose of environmental responsibility. In Feathering the Nest, Hutson shares her passion for creating children’s spaces—putting her guiding principles into practice for four different styles of nursery design: vintage, contemporary, traditional, and international. Featuring stories and photos of actual children’s rooms from around the country, the book focuses on the essential components of nursery design, including the special touches that make a room your child’s very own. The warmth and creativity of Hutson’s approach will inspire every parent to create the ideal nest for their child.
