It’s quite extraordinary what happens when you go to the spa. The moment you walk in, the world drifts away and you forget about what has (or will) happen that day.

So how can you create a space that will grow up with your kids? Let’s dive in into some of the must-have elements when it comes to kids’ rooms.
