What inspired you?
When we found out unexpectedly that we were expecting, upsizing was not an option (note the co-sleeper arrangement), and our budget was pretty minimal (college students!). So we just used the things we already had, did a lot of DIY art projects, and added books and other objects that we had enjoyed from our childhood.
We like the fact that the room is a bit generationally ambiguous, yet has touches of whimsy.
Make every room a living room!
