Dear AT readers, we would first like to thank you for all the thoughtful comments and questions. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that it generated so much commentary and discussion. After living in only one half of the apartment for many years complete with all the quirks of a tenement apartment, including a shower in the kitchen, our new home embodies all that the previous was lacking - space, light, functionality and our own aesthetic. When we agreed to a photo shoot and to virtually invite everyone into our home, we decided that it was important to let you view it as we live in it every day. The apartment was not "styled" for the shoot. So yes, we did not put away our laundry. And yes, the mess on the desk is real mess. But we also live with a newborn so cut us some slack. And what is wrong with creating a space (and not a "stage") for a growing child to play in? That said, we'll try to answer some of your questions and respond to some of your comments as best as we can.
