Name: Atticus (5 months)
Location: Corvallis, OR
Division: Single Room
Room Size: 25 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: We have found that proper storage + organization is key to living in a small space... kids or no kids. If something doesn't have a place it can drive you mad, especially in a small home.

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: Fitting everything a baby might need into 25 square feet of space (whose former life was a closet) was a daunting task. We chose a pale gray for the walls and bought the larger pieces of furniture in white to help make it feel as light and airy as possible. We made sure to fill the space with colorful art + objects that are entertaining for Atticus to look and they also keep all the gray and white from feeling to austere.

Favorite Thing About This Room: We love looking at all of Atti's books, toys, and art. It reminds us that the best objects are functional and beautiful.
