It's great fun to host our contest for small kids' rooms every year and I enjoy seeing which ones most resonate with readers. Each room submitted has something clever or beautiful to take inspiration from, but I can't help but have my favorites. Above are my ten favorite rooms, in random order, from the 2011 Smaller Cooler contest. (You can see the reader-picked winners here.)
• Elsa's Barn Door Hideaway
• Mad & Dad's Simple Vintage Nook
• Mid Century Miles
• A Little Room for a Little Daisy
• Sophie's Bright Closet Room
• Atti's Mini Modern Sleep Nook
• Maren's Place, ala Popsicle Palette
• Oh Brother, It's A Circus Around Here!
• Julian's Cozy Corner of the World
• A Tale of Two Toddlers
