Family homes need to work hard and play hard, meeting the varying needs of style-conscious parents, lively toddlers and everyone else in between. In Creative Family Home, Ashlyn Gibson explores homes that capture the zeitgeist in family living and celebrate the magic of childhood. Whether your family consists of a single bouncing baby or 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 by focusing on the varying demands of family living, with suggestions for using space creatively, colour, pattern and decoration, living areas, sleeping spaces, bathrooms and storage. There are also suggestions for homework and creative zones, display, and outdoor spaces. 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 varying approaches to the multitude of demands that characterize modern family life. Creative Family Home celebrates modern family life, where children, from babies to teens, are given the freedom to express themselves and to develop their individuality within the context of an imaginative and creative family home.

This is one of the best books on creating unique and personalized spaces I've ever seen. Real homes and good design with discussion of creative solutions the owners came up with themselves.
