Tip for Living Small with Kids: Reduce the clutter! You don't need all of that baby gear many people say you need. Get only the essentials and adjust your space as needed. Living in a small space takes constant consideration of stuff. If you want to bring something new in, you must find a place for it to live...that might mean getting rid of something not as needed.

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: Having balance between an adult-like room and whimsical feel of a child's room was tough. Using soothing gray with a pop of orange and white works for this space.Finding a space for a full size crib was also an impossibility. We went for a small crib, and have been happy with the results.

Favorite Thing About This Room: I love the hand-painted mural, and that the room seems to be split into a master bedroom and a nursery, yet still have a cohesive feeling
