When Anna chose her apartment at Jersey City’s 70 Greene, she already knew her life was about to change. “I was six months pregnant and needed an apartment that will accommodate our growing family. I loved the window walls, since it provides a sense of openness to a not-so-large space. The brightness and whiteness of the apartment provided a perfect backdrop to creating our home,” she says.
Anna, an architect, was able to apply her personal aesthetic – one she describes as “lived modern-minimal” – to create a happy, light-filled nursery for her son, Matteo. “The modern apartment easily lends itself to creating a child-friendly space without it being too kitschy or ‘cute’. The space constraints allow a limited number of pieces to fit, so they had to be both beautiful and functional,” says Anna. In fact, the design was compelling enough to earn a feature in the online design magazine Apartment Therapy.
