Tip for Living Small with Kids: Our home is tiny (just under 600 sq ft), so staying sane requires lots of organization. We’ve drawn our inspiration from the compact minimalism of Scandinavian homes and the thoughtful organization of Montessori spaces. Everything has its place and anything that doesn’t get used – chuck it out! We regularly donate or store any clothes, books, and toys that the boys have grown out of. Throughout the rest of our home we have hidden storage for the things they use on a daily basis. We avoid being overrun by playthings by keeping them to a minimum, investing in good quality heirloom toys, and using the outdoors as our play area. Living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, the beach is our backyard and we explore outside every day.
Favorite Thing About This Room: I love the artwork. I searched for months before finding the Blik wall decal (“Branches”). It helped transform this little closet into a warm and whimsical space. I love how the boys “talk” to the birds that are perched at their eye level. I also strung up a set of quirky Julie Morstad alphabet cards (“R is for red coat"; "Z is for zephyr”) that were gifted to us by a mom whose birth I attended as a doula. The paper bunting is from their 1st birthday and the print of a bear on a bike is from Etsy.
Thanks for your entry Sarah and good luck!
