A Mixture Of Memories

A little bit of this, a little bit of that - blending the past with the present makes for a very lively and welcoming room fit for a playful toddler. Many of the items you see here once belonged in my childhood bedroom. With plenty of space for playing, sleeping, and reading, I often find myself lost in daydreams of days past and the possibilities of future creative play with my daughter.

A simple arrangement of spice racks from IKEA, painted a muted yellow shade, provides a clutter-free and beautiful habitat for the dozens (hundreds?) of books my daughter owns.

Her favorite part? The car mat from IKEA is the perfect setting for barnyard animal parades and high-speed car chases.

What does your toddler's room look like?
