Close Quarters: 8 Pro Tips for Decorating and Sharing a Small Space
As we patiently await the arrival of our third child in early February, I have started to prepare my girls for his arrival. One of my favorites so far has been redesigning their room into an official "big girl" room for them. Avery, my youngest, is currently in a crib and Harlan, my oldest, is in a toddler bed. I wanted to help them both make the transition into a room better suited for them well before their new brother arrives so that the transition will go smoothly. For the redesign of the room, I went to Michelle Freedberg, the owner of Bellini, a family-owned furniture company, who has helped design a number of baby and children's rooms, including several celebrities. I knew Michelle would be perfect to help me with our small space because she has worked with several clients in New York City who are dealing with the same issue that I am; two kids in one small room. Since working with Michelle on the redesign, she's given me several useful tips for making the most out of a smaller shared space. If you have a smaller space that you have to make work for two, check out Michelle's tips!
