Alexandra went from a homeowner to a renter, but this didn't stop her design aspirations. She shares: My inspiration for this room was the tiny vintage Babar pillow, bought on Etsy in a moment of new motherhood haze. A mixture of used and new, Craigslist and IKEA, flea markets and eBay, the room is aligned with my intentions to keep things simple and to buy used, whenever possible.

Now he has his room, all to himself, with a bed for me on the occasional night when he needs me close by. It is the first room I finished putting together completely since we moved - and I will admit that it is more for me, than for him. But with every new habit, like cuddling into the corner pillows to read his books at night or noticing the pink plastic flamingos in the neighbors yard every morning, I realize that this space is his and my control over it will be short lived.

For now, you can imagine my delight in its creation.

Thanks Alexandra! Readers, visit Alexandra and read more about this room at Repurposed Playground.
