The alphabet wall is AWESOME!

The color coded cars, however, would last all of about five seconds in any house with a toddler aged kid.

I went and snapped up the Kraken-- what an adorable print! I can't wait to see it in my son's room.

Our living room has a library nook with built-in shelves on one end. We have a pair of armchairs tucked into that space for an additional seating area, and that's where we spend most of our time-- not our couches! They end up being for entertaining only. I love having a room with multiple uses.

We're a family of three-- two adults and a toddler-- and we're in the process of adopting either another child or a sibling pair. We live in a 2000 square foot home, and it feels just about perfect. Normally I would think a house that size to be too large for a family like ours, but there are mitigating circumstances.

Our little guy is in a wheelchair, my husband is in and out of a wheelchair, and the children we are adopting may be in wheelchairs as well. As a result it becomes very difficult to work with small amounts of floorspace because you need so much room between furniture, the bathrooms need to have a certain amount of room, the hallways have to be wide enough, etc. Our home is now remodeled on Universal Design principles and works beautifully for us. I think we'd have a hard time fitting into a smaller home, unless it didn't have any interior walls.
