Although our readers prove everyday that you don't need to be a professional to create a happy, beautiful space for your family, we're always interested to see the homes of design professionals. TimeOut New York Kids recently featured Purvia Padia, Jennifer Ward and Celerie Kemble to see how they tackle their own space and design obstacles at home.
You can see a slideshow showcasing each of their homes on TimeOut New York Kids and here are a few highlights for us:
• Purvi Padia's hidden toy closet built into the wall behind the fireplace - brilliant!
• Jenn Ward's pretty shared bedroom with painted white floors
• Celerie Kemble's 100% hand-me-down policy for her third child
