Project | Modern Manhattan Nursery
transFORM’s designer Sally Soontharak, and Interior Designer Shari Francis of DADAPT, dreamed up the perfect solution for a modern Manhattan nursery. This is one lucky baby with a well organized closet, designed in our popular White Coco Melamine.
What did they want? Did they have a favorite look or style they wanted you to create?
The ultimate goal was to create a functional system that could maximize the closets vertical hanging space. Tastefully accented with Polished Chrome hardware, our custom unit neatly showcases this little cuties wardrobe while making all of her belongings easily accessible.
How did you create this?
Tapered panels offer better visibility to upper shelves for storage bins and less frequently used items. Storage bins with handles create a sleek and polished look. They can be used in a variety of ways and can be further enhanced with labels to keep everything neat and tidy.
The hanging system can adjust as the child grows while drawers and slide out chrome baskets can be used for toys and miscellaneous items. Drawer dividers make organizing clothes, especially baby clothes so much easier.
At first glance, you see a classic white changing table but in fact this built-in system doubles as additional storage. The changing tray can be removed to reveal a custom sideboard, which can be personalized with knick-knacks and home decor. Side cubbies were installed for keeping baby wipes and diapers so they are always within easy reach. A built-in hamper is also connected to the changing area for added convenience.
The system includes, removeable and lightweight nylon bags for easy transport to the laundry room. These hampers help keep the room clean and increase space without losing functionality. This project was inspired by contemporary cool design. The nursery displays a contrast of texture and shape, as well as simple clean lines and symmetrical balance. Floating shelves were included for additional storage. Modern shelving helps brighten and organize the child’s space while offering a wealth of decorating possibilities. Finally, the neutral color palette brings personality to the room, creating a pretty look that will last as their daughter enters grade school.
How did this project improve their lifestyle?
“Overall, this nursery displays a perfect combination of functionality and personality. When integrated with various storage options, it becomes a happy place where they can smile, relax and enjoy time with their new addition.” - Sally
