    In reality, I think there are very few babies who actually have rooms like THOSE. :)

    Don’t feel bad for a moment…our Miss Kate spent her first 9 months in the closet and it’s a memory we will treasure always. And that’s just TOO MUCH space anyway!

    Aw, don’t feel bad, babies don’t need room. He won’t need room until he’s quite a bit older. :)

    I know what you mean. I usualy steer clear of nursery decorations, because for the time being, we are stuck managing and living at a motel. There is an apartment and my two year old has her own room. Stark white, boring room that is. But she is still happy as can be.

    We have that ark and it’s HUGE. It was a present to our daughter on her first birthday from her godmother…and at 4, she’s just now getting around to liking it! Cracks me up!

    That light fixture is amazing!

    As far as the room sizes go, just remember…you get to live in San Francisco! I have a big ol’ house in ALABAMA. So not worth it.

    i know what you mean ~ i’m going to be having the closet-as-nursery for my lil’ peach when she arrives this fall too. but huge playroms like those, beautiful as they are, i think are more the exception than the rule. besides, our kids get the added bonuses that come w/ being in sf ~ who needs a huge playroom when there are so many wonderful things to explore & do & be beyond your home’s walls, that no place else can offer. ;o)

    Just think about all the amazing places you can walk to in San Francisco from where you live now! You could always move somewhere less exciting and have a big house, but it wouldn’t be that great of a trade off, right?

    oh wow, that house is insane! moses is probably quite cozy in his closet, so I wouldn’t worry!

    While in grad school I had a design project to do a daycare, and I pulled research that showed how good it was for little kids [and babies I am sure] to have small spaces. It gives them a better sense of security to be in spaces that are to their scale.

    That huge room is out of scale even for grown-ups!

    Don’t feel bad…it’s the way of life for parents with small children in San Francisco. We did it too when we lived there and I thought it was a great way to maximize our small space. Although we live in a home now, we continue the tradition of “creative sleeping”. Last night my son slept in my sister’s laundry room in a sleeping bag :) He thought it was great!

    Don’t feel bad, I intend on using my closet as a nursery if I ever manage to have another baby. It’s the one place that my cat knows that it is not allowed to go. Babies don’t need a lot of space.

    um yeah, I’d like to have my cake and eat it too- it’d be grand to live in a great city and have a giant sun drenched nursery!

    the animals in the first shot remind me of the opening scene of atonement. did you see it? the first twenty minutes are soo amazing

    Oh I totally know what you mean! I’m a nester and my 11 month old lives in a closet too. It’s so difficult to be confined with creativity.

    I just love the ark! And I love the fact that all of the toys/decorations are made of natural material and do not need batteries to work!!

    About the size of the room. It seems great but…how cold it must be in the winter!
