This Sweet Nursery Nook Was Carved Out of the Most Unexpected Space

Sometimes the best designs stem from making the most of small spaces—especially when designing with a little one in mind. Los Angeles–based photographers Max and Margaux Wanger immediately fell in love with their charming 1940s home, but once their family grew from three to four, they needed to rework their cozy abode to accommodate the new arrival. While expecting their second baby girl, the Wangers worked with family friend and designer Sarah Sherman Samuel to carve out a sweet nursery right in the master bedroom. "We ended up transforming the closet into a nursery nook and designed the rest of the room to be a calming space that reflected Max and Margaux's modern-minimal-artful lives," said Samuel. The Wangers replaced everything except their bed frame when Samuel reworked the space, maintaining what they describe as "a beautiful grown-up bedroom that can still accommodate everything that comes along with having a baby."
