MILA’S ROOM IN DUMBO

July 10, 2010

I recently completed a girl’s room in a beautiful loft in the heart of DUMBO, Brooklyn. Mila, my 4 year old “client”, needed furniture that would carry her through high school with minor changes. The project was done mostly in natural birch. The pink pulls and accent panels of the dresser and night table can be replaced in the future when and if she grows out of it.

Mila is too young still to sit at a desk so she prefers using the rolling table that we fit under her desk. In a few years she will be ready for it. Next to the desk there is a long bench with drawers full of toys and above them, bookshelves.

Under the long window we built a cabinet that covers the radiator, adds some more storage to the room and and provide a ledge for a small TV. This room has a beautiful light and the natural color of the birch combined with the white and pink of the painted surfaces create a playful, warm and peaceful atmosphere.
