Choosing for yourself can sometimes seem like fighting your way around an obstacle course but choosing for something for someone else is a mission impossible! Here is some advice to help you decorate the room of your little monster...

Playing, sleeping... - Take into account the general ergonomics of the room. Make a clear distinction between the sleeping space and the play area, which could soon become the future work area. Times tables quickly replace nappies. Think evolutionw - even if your child doesn't eat all their crusts and makes a fuss when faced with a bowl of soup, they will soon shoot up by tens of centimetres. You'll not be changing bedrooms like you change your clothes, so opt for furniture that can move with the times. Princess and cowboy mania doesn't last! So be creative with a decor that can also change with the new fads (stickers, frames...) rather than painting the walls pink with a princess border from Uncle Walt. From one day to the next, your little one may declare: "Snow White is rubbish!"
Security - when you buy something think about getting advice on the security norms, which although not always universally upheld can still be somewhat reassuring! You better be sure that your little bundle of joy will not get their head stuck between the bars of the superb ladder that leads to their super-stylish bed. Finally, think about fixing the furniture to the wall, you never know when the little one might start to think he is spider-man.
