Name: Adelaide (1)
Location: Sonoma County, CA
Division: Single Room
Room Size: 61 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: Have a place for everything so that when those 10 minutes come where Jr. is playing happily in a corner, you can shift into hyperspeed-cleaning mode and put everything away. But don't stress about the mess if those 10 minutes never appear. The reality of a small space is that it is not going to look perfect all the time, especially with a mini me. A happy, creative child is worth far more than a sparkling clean house anyway.

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: There is not a money tree growing in my backyard to help me buy furniture that fits perfectly into this very small space. The placement of the door and window make furniture and storage arrangements tricky.

Favorite Thing About This Room: Somehow this tiny room has turned into one of my favorite rooms in the house. Through lots of thrifting, crafting, and working with what I had from my and my husband's childhoods this room has come together to express a creative, relaxed vibe that perfectly reflects our take on life. Between the glorious amount of sunlight that pours in the window and the cheery colors throughout, this room always brightens my day.
