Most children, it seems, get three different bedroom designs over the course of their growing-up years, according to Joan Kaufman of Interior Planning and Design Inc. of Naperville and president of the Illinois Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers.
Sports, soccer to be exact, were also the theme Jane Zaeske’s daughter wanter in her room, decorated last year by Kaufman.
“I hired a designer because I know what I like, but I just can’t seem to put it all together in a room. I wanted something that was affordable, looks organized and cleans up well,” Zaeske said.
“We saw a comforter we liked and Joan Kaufman worked on the room from there, using my daughter’s favorite color of blue,” she explained. “She did everything with paint and stencil and some wall appliqués and the result is awesome. It is very simple and not overdone.”
“It is girlish with a touch of tomboy, which fits her personality,” Zaeske added.
