Names: Madeleine (13 months) and Dad
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Division: Shared Room
Room Size: 96 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: For me it's knowing exactly where everything goes. I also don't keep EVERY toy she has out. Keeping her choices to a minimum helps in controlling the chaos.

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: Being a single dad, it was finding the balance between masculine style and femininity for a little girl in a shared small space. I don't mind the small space, but I still wanted to feel like I was living in 'my' room when she wasn't with me.

Favorite Thing About This Room: My favorite things in this room are the painting I did of Madeleine and our silhouettes. I love being reminded of her when she is with her mom.
