Name/Age: S, 2 years old
Location: Albany, California
Family: S, mom Lena and her partner
Room Size: 90 square feet
Division: Baby

Tip for Living Small with Kids: Buy only what you need and find a special nook for everything. Shoes always go in a certain place in her closet, the thermometer is in a little basket on her dresser, toys are arranged by material and stored in separate containers.

Also S's abode is tiny, so we use half of her closet as an extension of her room and half for storage.

Give S's family a THUMBS UP if you think this room belongs in the finals!

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in putting together this room? We rent and are not allowed to paint the walls. It's challenging to decorate a very white room, so I thought that bringing in color in other ways was important. The lamp, the bedding, the rug, the paintings and pictures, all came out of this idea. The best resource for specific ideas, like the felt raindrops around the light fixture, or the laminated rainbow placemat under the changing table, and the clothespin picture hangings came from various design blogs and browsing around etsy.
