Smaller Cooler 2011 Entry #53

Name: Lyla (3.5)
Location: Baltimore, MD
Division: Single Room
Room Size: 70 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: One entire wall of this room is cubbies. We keep all the clothes organized in categories. It's easy to find them quickly and put them away easily. We also have lots of bins and wire baskets under benches and in corners for toys, socks, and shoes.

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: Believe it or not, this room allows for more configs than most in our house. Not putting the bed in front of the window (especially in winter) because of the draft was always a challenge, although it was once there in summer. Not to mention our dog barks like crazy out there!

Favorite Thing About This Room: I love the way the multi-color striped wallpaper breaks up the pink. We looked for a while, but we settled on this because the various colors in it actually create a neutral palette for the room. Everything matches it!

Thanks for your entry Jennifer and good luck!
