Piper's Cubby

Smaller Cooler 2011 Entry #23

Pin it button big

Name: Piper (2)
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Division: Single Room
Room Size: 70 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: We tried to keep in mind appropriate activities for a young child in a small space, such as promoting sleep, what she would like to see when she woke up, and keeping tactile toys that function well in a compact space. Though we usually prefer cooler neutrals and whites, the warm paint tone gives a cozy feeling. Piper's favorite spot is the tiny space between the wall and the radiator behind the chair. Go figure, the smaller the better!

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: Making sure it didn't feel cluttered... and the biggest is yet to come (how to make room for her brother to be).

Favorite Thing About This Room: The light and the storage space.

Thanks for your entry Zoe and good luck!
