Name(s): Harper (3 months)
Location: Carlsbad, CA
Division: Single
Room Size: 75

Tip for Living Small with Kids: We got wall to wall bookshelves from Ikea and put extensions on them to maximize height and storage with the look of a built-in at a fraction of the cost. The shelves are only 13'' deep so they don't take up any of the room's precious floor space. We also got a hanging "canoe" crib from Etsy that doesn't take up floor space and can easily be moved from room to room on ceiling hooks.

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: Keeping the room from looking cluttered by maximizing storage.

Favorite Thing About This Room: The stripes! At first we were worried it would look like you were inside the cat in the hat! But the bookshelf and pictures layered on helped soften the look. We love the cozy library feel the room has.

Thanks for your entry Lauren and good luck!
