Are you wondering how to balance the care of your newly wandering baby or toddler with your lovingly designed home? We have good news! You no longer have to choose between your child’s safety and your sense of style. Of course, parents always go with the safety option but it does hurt a little bit to put that ugly baby gate at the top of our beautifully varnished hardwood stairs. Not only can we not get into our cupboards with ease, we have to look at those VERY white, plastic locks sitting on our carefully chosen vintage hardware every time we walk into the kitchen. No more! Décorview is here to help with some stylish child safety ideas that maintain and maybe even add to the look of your home.
