This book showcases a wide variety of interiors designed for the very young from around the world. These range from creches, nurseries and preschools, to museums, restaurants, bedrooms, playspaces, shops and hotels. Each architect or designer has given considerable thought to making their space whether public or private – workable and beautiful, and their approaches are inspirational. If you are looking for design ideas, or just want somewhere great to take your child at the weekend, this is the book for you.
