Name: Cleo (4 months)
Location: New York, NY
Division: Single Room
Room Size: 30 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: Everything must have a purpose! Our wall cabinet in the nursery serves as a great piece for storage as well as a display shelf for Cleo's stuffed animals and toys. We even utilize the space under the crib to store her tub and changing table when its not in use.

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: The biggest challenge was having 30 square feet to work with in addition to no windows. This room used to be our walk in closet but due to the size of our apartment we had no choice but to convert it to the nursery. With the help of warm colors and proper lighting, Cleo's room is still very light and airy.

Favorite Thing About This Room: My favorite thing about the room is how inviting it is. Cleo absolutely loves it! The light violet on the walls along with the white furniture and trim gives it a very calming feel. It actually appears like a small nursery and not just a closet anymore.

Thanks for your entry Heather and good luck!
