Mattias' Black, White & Fun All Over

Name: Mattias (4 months)
Location: Portland, OR
Division: Single Room
Room Size: 50 square feet

Tip for Living Small with Kids: It's important to buy items that you love, that can evolve over time and, when ever possible, that serve more than one purpose. Aside from that, love and play with your children, not stuff. :)

Biggest Design Challenge in this Room: This "room" is our walk-in closet and we rent. Anything that is done must be undone later. Since I couldn't remove the shelving or the hanging rails, so I had to incorporate/ embrace them... that took some brainstorming.

*Don't worry folks, there isn't a door on this closet, it cannot be closed, he cannot be "trapped inside". Safety first!

Favorite Thing About This Room: So much of this room is handmade, re-purposed and generally frugal-friendly... I'm happy to have created an interesting and fun space for my little guy that didn't break the bank. I love the look I get when I say that my kid lives in the closet, and then the look of surprise when they see how nice it is.

Thanks for your entry Crystal and good luck!
