We temporarily interrupt Small Space month to bring you this spacious, airy, serene attic room designed for triplets. It's luxurious without being lavish and with the natural chaos that we imagine triplets bring all on their own limiting the furnishings and keeping the decor simple seem like smart choices.

This nursery was designed by Marsh & Clark Design as part of the 2010 San Francisco Decorator Showcase (which you can see for yourself through May 31st). While many of the pieces in this room are out of reach for the ordinary family, there's plenty of inspiration here for the taking. We particularly appreciate the rugs under each crib to avoid the institutional feel that three cribs in a room could bring. The abstract chandeliers (custom made) bring an artsy sophistication and are clearly stimulating to infants. And the greyish blues and whites in the room are indeed calming without being boring.

A few notes about some of the furnishings:

• The matching cribs were handmade by craftsman Rob Taboada with sustainably-harvested hardwood and recycled fiberboard.

• Note the clever mirrors that pull-down to become changing tables (photo 3)

• The modern rocker is Thomas Pedersen's Stingray rocking chair

• The animal photographs are by on of our favorites, Catherine Ledner
