Design has no Age Limits

A colleague of mine has been taking home design magazines from our office for her mother to read. She is at home all day on her own and loves to have something to do with her time.
She is in her 70's yet she can still get excited and passionate about learning design. My colleague said she walked into the room recently and could hear her having conversations with herself as she browsed through the magazines and was astonished with some of the design "oohing" and "aahing" at some pieces and was thinking about situations to use some of the designer furniture and was pretty much having a great time.

So it just goes to show you that you are never too old to learn about design or to appreciate it.

The same can be said for children. They can be quite pedantic about how they want their bedrooms to look, what colors they like, and where they want to place their things in their room. They are also very good at having a designer shopping list! I don't leave design magazi…
