Living with two small kids in a small-ish Brooklyn, New York can be a challenge in so many ways. (You really don’t want to hear me count them.) There’s the toy storage dilemma, the clothing wrangling, and the sleeping arrangements of two kids under the age of six, sharing a room with very different taste in all things.
Five years ago, Parents magazine ran a story about the crafty ways in which I decorated my son Oliver’s nursery, and now, with a second kid and totally different needs, I set out to take that post-nursery hodgepodge of a room and turn it into something airy, bright and fun for both Oliver (age 6) and Sommer (age 4). And this time, FamilyFun Magazine, the sister to Parents, shared these photos on the pages of their August/September issue.
So much work went into this room and so many great companies helped me solve both form and function dilemmas. Stay tuned for more posts soon about why I chose specific products and why I made specific DIYs.
