In pre-war buildings (ours is a classic 7), there is usually a little useless room that they would call a maids room. I needed it to be a bedroom and I have to say it is one of my favorites. Click on each picture for a better view.
This room is really small and they were using it as a closet with a washer dryer and toilette. The window that you see here was looking into the hallway so I covered that entire wall with built in closets
I took this last picture a long time ago but as you can see there are two closets . A utility one behind the door and a closet with built in draws behind the sliding doors. We found a cool company , Easy Closets, that can make you built ins in a week and they cost 1/3 of California closets but look similar. My only tip is that if you do use them make sure you get the floor mounted version the wall mounted is not sturdy.
The color came out dark in the photo. It is called Blue Wave by Benjamin Moore and it feels like you are in the cote D'Azure.
The moldings gave this room charisma. The gray and white rug is another Madeline Weinrib and the bed is ikea.
The Marimekko print is just stretched fabric over a wooden frame.
The view is of the water so I wanted to leave it in the room the door opens up to the washer dryer below
Using subway tile on the vertical gives this tiny bathroom height and makes it feel so much bigger. The little mirror medicine cabinet was the only solution.
How convenient - You can change loads while you are in the can - hmm?
I thought a shower would be a little better and can fit two people :) so I put the washer dryer underneath the cabinets in the kitchen. I love the little carrera brick tile from Nemo tile NYC.
