Name: Daisy (2.5)
Location: Cincinnati, OH
Division: Single Room
Room Size: 72 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: Create little nooks! When I was putting the room together the spot right underneath the shadow box by her bed seemed so awkward to me, but for Daisy, it's the perfect place to take a blanket and a book; it's her go-to spot!

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: The Ikea bookshelf. I was not going to go out and buy another shelving unit if I could find one around the house, but once I got it in her room it took up so much space. I can't tell you how many times I turned that thing around and shoved it across the carpet! It was important for me to have it on it's side too because I wanted Daisy to be able to have access to all the shelves. In the end I just gave up and put it where it seemed the best (which, of course, was where it first started). And like I mentioned before, the awkward space between the bookshelf and the bed that I was so concerned about became Daisy's favorite place in her room.

Favorite Thing About This Room: The colors! I know that it's probably cliche to paint your daughters room pink, but I felt that it would be a great canvas to build from. It has taken me about two years to put this room together but I wanted to show Daisy's personality so I needed the time. The walls may be soft, but the character of the room is bold, just like my little Daisy!

Thanks for your entry Amy and good luck!
