pinned and pinned when I was planning the room, so most of my inspiration can be found there. What is your favorite piece or element? I really love the rocking horse that my great grandfather made for my Mom. What challenges did you face when creating a shared room for your daughter and baby? I wanted the room to feel cohesive and uncluttered, so the biggest challenge was finding a place for everything. We had to Craigslist several of the bigger pieces we had to make room for the crib. We also did a complete overhaul on the closet to accomodate all of the kids' cute clothes! You can read more about that here. What's your proudest DIY moment? Other than the closet, I really love the floating book shelves, which were the easiest things ever. My husband used 6" and 8" l-brackets and then we arranged the books on top. That's it! Do you have any advice for parents creating a room for their child? Not to get too caught up in trends. I bought the ubiquitous "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster for Matilda's room and after a while I couldn't bear to see it anymore! Ha. Stick with what you love and take bits of inspiration from all over. What do your friends say about the room? I have really nice friends so I'm pretty sure they'd say they liked it no matter what!
