When we found out we were expecting, I thought of all the possibilities for our little ones room and dreamed up the perfect nursery. Then we were hit with TWINS… say what? That’s right, twins. My first thought was how are we going to all fit in our tiny house?
Our house is tiny, not like the tiny houses you see on HGTV but tiny in it’s own right. We have a 900 sq ft, two bed one bath Mid Century California bungalow. A small house packed with huge character and we absolutely love it. Okay, back to the task at hand… how are we going to squeeze two babies and ALL the things babies need into one tiny room?
I knew that jamming so many things into a small nursery wasn’t going to be easy but if I kept everything light and bright it wouldn’t feel too crowded. Some how it worked itself out and I think this room was secretly supposed to house twins. The cribs fit perfectly on each side of the window. The striped accent wall somehow makes it feel bigger too!
I chose a neutral color palette of grey and white and added colorful touches to the room like this embroidery piece. This was made by my husband’s grandmother to hang in his nursery and was passed down to us!
Ev loves her “roo” placed below the window. There’s a giant tree outside the window that she loves to stare at.
Now that the babes are older, this book shelf has changed from a “styled” piece in the room to a much more functional “kid-friendly” book shelf.
One of the biggest challenges besides space was storage. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a tad OCD with organization and the babes room is no exception. Everything has a place and most things have a label (for the husband).
I went with a single dresser vs. the double to save on space but that meant I would forgo on storage. I’ve had to be extra savvy with the drawer space we have. The babes each get two drawers, one big and one small.
