On September 24, baby furniture manufacturer Argington commented on an article published on FloridaToday.com which featured designers Aimee Balda and Dee Patnoe discussing the long-term appeal of rooms which are designed to be gender-neutral, in order to broaden both usage and appeal.
As described by FloridaToday.com, both Aimee Balda and Dee Patnoe were hired to design bedrooms that weren’t based around popular themes but around more timeless elements. Balda designed two bedrooms for a client’s two daughters, who had very different tastes. Balda was able to create rooms that spoke to each girl’s particular interests but each “with distinct styles that will last the girls several years.” For Patnoe, the challenge was to design a room “to be gender neutral so it could be enjoyed by boys and girls.”
Argington spokesperson Clay Darrohn says, “The idea of decorating a room in a gender-neutral fashion is one that some parents may initially reject but there are definite advantages. Rather than decorate a whole room for a theme which may only appeal to the child for a few years and face the cost of redecorating down the line, if the room is decorated in a more neutral style, it will still retain the appeal years later. You don’t have to sacrifice customization or style. We at Argington design our furniture to fit in with just about any room décor. This gives our customers a better value and more options down the road.”
“Timelessness” was an important aspect for both designers, as the FloridaToday.com article indicated. For both Balda and Patnoe, some furniture pieces were focal points around which the rest of the décor was centered. Using neutral colored furniture helps impart that timeless feel that both designers and their clients were in search of.
