When I considered having a baby, I knew it would involve many personal sacrifices. Losing my walk-in closet, however, felt like the biggest. The upside was that I always enjoy a good home design project, and I was excited to take on the challenge of designing my son’s nursery.
One of the classic layouts of a Brooklyn brownstone includes a small room situated over the entry of the parlor floor. In New York, this is a bonafide room, but measuring at only 6 feet by 8 feet, this is a walk in closet in the rest of the country. Before having a baby, our apartment was huge by NY standards – huge enough to turn this “second bedroom“ into my walk-in closet. Now it was time to transform this room where my clothing, handbags, jewelry, scarves, shoes had provided me with years of great dress up opportunities. In hindsight, it was not such a huge loss since as a new mom spending more than 5 minutes getting dressed is not an option. In exchange, my little boy has a special place to sleep, play and show his friends. ✨Read how the transformation turned out [Link in Bio]. Written by @jenee.sais.quoi #wellroundedny #closet #nursery
