My daughter, a grad student finishing her second year in an interior design program, had as her final assignment the task of re-designing the children's library in Chappaqua, NY. Her inspiration for the project was the Crockett Johnson classic, Harold and the Purple Crayon. I remember reading the story to her when she was a little bit of a thing.
This morning I was thrilled to see the plans for the library posted on her blog. I think she did a wonderful job of creating an inviting yet sophisticated environment for young readers. But what do I know? I'm only her mother.
