Name: Maren (1) and guests and sometimes mom
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Division: Shared Room
Room Size: 84 square feet
Tip for Living Small with Kids: Don't try to keep things pristine. It will drive you crazy. It is much more challenging to keep small spaces looking 'put away', so learn to love the look of blocks scattered about the room. I know I cleaned up nice for taking photos of our space, but the reality of a lived in little home with kiddos is pretty nice - no need to fight it all the time.
Favorite Thing About This Room: The floor. I have always had a thing for white painted floors, probably from my Swedish roots. Maren's room is the only bedroom in our place, so we thought why not go for it, just in there? Maren's dad sanded and sanded and painted and I think it really set up the light and airy character I love about this room.
Thanks for your entry Lisa and good luck!
