A layered, boho look melds well with the happy chaos of family life. Whatever style you choose, though, low-maintenance is crucial. Once kids arrive, it is hard to keep up with clearing clutter.

For furniture, choose a vibrant color, a bit of pattern and touchable texture. All help to camouflage the inevitable spills… It is also fun to have a place for children to display their art.

 Forts are fun at any age, and a cardboard version is one that can be easily folded up and pulled out when the grandchildren come visit.
